Concierge.com's insider take:
There's good reason so many boating magazines consider this cheery Eastport hangout one of the top bars in the country. Inside the Key West-style structure, dugout canoes and ship's ensigns hang from the rafters while the walls are filled with photographs of old salts, vintage boatyard signs, and taxidermied game fish. It's not all for show, either: there's a ClearPoint high-def weather display of real-time wind conditions on the Bay. Though Boatyard's a yachtie favorite, landlubbers won't feel out of place listening in on tall-ship tales and fishy stories. In addition to the fully stocked bar, a kitchen turns out entrees and excellent munchies, like the baked blue-crab dip, an addictive blend of lump crabmeat, Parmesan cheese, artichoke hearts, spinach, and onion.
Open Mondays through Fridays 7:30 am to midnight, Saturdays and Sundays 8 am to midnight.
