  • Nice place to watch the sunset. It's come a long way from what it used to be. There are a lot of restaurants now and boats that offer tours of the lake. Sometimes the music can be a little too loud in a small area and it's hard to have a conversation.
  • Very nice views. Limited vehicle traffic. Great spot for a quick walk or some photos.
  • The Sunset here is very beautiful and incredible to watch as the sun slowly sets. There are several spots to watch the sunset. Couple places I would recommend is over by the bar under the patio sitting on a chair enjoying a cold beverage. As you walk towards the opposite end of the Marina, there are various places along the way to watch the Sunset such as the big rocks that you can climb to and pick a rock to sit on. When you start to approach the opposite end of the Marina, right before the loop, there is a small "Beach" of sand along the short line. You may not notice at 1st. You have to climb over a few rocks to get to it, but it's very easy to climb down. Although this small area is not intended for swimming, it's great for taking off your footwear to put your toes in the water or sand. If your intention is to just drive down to this end to check everything out, there's a small loop here that you can either slowly circle/turn around or simply just park for a moment to watch the water or Sunset. As far as places to eat or enjoy a cold beverage, there are 2 Restaurants, an Ice Cream shop and a Bar. The 1st restaurant is William K's. It's a bit upscale but their food is good. The 2nd restaurant is next to WK's and they primarily make fried food and some already prepared food in their coolers with minimal healthy options. I don't recommend this restaurant. I would provide more info, but this review is about the Marina. The ice cream shop is next to the 2nd restaurant & the bar is located behind the ice cream shop, which is the perfect spot for watching the sunset with a cold drink.
  • Happy that the Hatch is open for the summer season. Great fried bologna! Can't wait to back for some Perry's Ice Cream by the water!
  • Great summer venue! Great for walking or running! Nice view! Great family destination!
