As you pull your boat up to the dock at Hopkins Creek, don't be surprised if you hear the cheers of a football game or catch a whiff of sizzling seafood. In fact, you might want to follow your senses and land your vessel at River Watch Restaurant & Marina, an old-fashioned sports bar perched on the edge of the bay. Time slows down as you enter the restaurant's Happy Hour, which is in effect from open until close most nights, and affords plenty of time to enjoy specials such as bang bang shrimp, jerk chicken, crab dip, and fresh mussels. Those without a boat can hoof it to the restaurant, then rent one of the marina's 114 slips to spend an afternoon at sea.
