it seems that Moors Riverboat is the place to go & get a drink and a meal now....apparently the Lighthouse will give you a free slip for the night if you go and eat & whatnot over there.

There is lots of guest dock space throughout the restaurant and Tower Park area. Depending on when you go, it can get crowded.

Yelp reviews for the Tower Park Waterfront Grill are showing up now. All very positive. Am hoping somebody will post pictures soon.

Are there guest docks at the Waterfront grill?
mudfinder Posted - May 22 2018 : 21:24:01
sorry to say,the waterfront grill at Tower Park is just horrible. over priced trying to be fancy and it just sucked. going to go to the loop to eat from now on.

I heard that the Windmill has had some renovations for the new season. I saw a picture on FB of a new overhang on the deck. Will have to check it out when I get the boat wet.

Looks like a replacement for Rosa's is almost ready to go. The Tower Park Waterfront Grille will open on May 1st. Appears to be an upscale place.
ginman Posted - Mar 14 2018 : 13:50:29
Though I preferred its previous version, the Tower Park Bar and Grill, sad to see another one of the old delta 'joints' closing. Sounds like whatever replaces Rosa's will be much more family friendly due to Jellystone taking over.
mudfinder Posted - Mar 10 2018 : 21:38:28
Tower Park getting much money pumped into it, but now its Jellystone. Rosa's restaurant gone. Rosa's nightclub gone...all the events they had every year like Rocking on the River for wounded warriors and the old WW2 collectors gone.. now they got Yogi the bear. They are going to open a new restaurant, don't know about live music. they will also have minature golf and a water park, so we will have to see.

There is the Nautical Swap Meet, thinking of heading out there, if it happens this year. Driftwood Marina is also having a 2nd annual swap meet sometime this year.

The Crawdad Festival from the 1990s and early 2000s is long gone. Apparently the folks who owned the rights to it, moved it to, I believe Red Bluff. Politics apparently played part in killing it too. There have been some small cajun type festivals but nothing to compare to the classic festival. Think the last time I went that it was still fun was 2006.
deltabighat Posted - Feb 12 2018 : 19:25:31
Does anyone know if they still have the Isleton Crawdad used to draw thousands to the delta.


ginman Posted - Feb 12 2018 : 16:48:42
I still shed a tear when I drive past Das Cliff Haus and see the state it is in. The first time I ever went to the delta, back in the summer of 1992, that is where we went. After that we cruised down 160 and ended up in a strange little town. There were signs everywhere advertising something - we were like, what the heck is a Crawdad Festival? Another world ago .....
Arnold Posted - Feb 12 2018 : 14:16:27
Every year we cruise the Delta for about a week. First stop is always Benicia and second stop is Rio Vista. After that, it is open. This summer we are planning to make it to Giusti.
Can anyone suggest a good itinerary starting from Sausalito?

It is so difficult to maintain and prosper a delta Marina, bar or restaurant that a lot of places simply close up. In time the old swamp reclaims everything and it all becomes rotted wood and mud again. I am sick when I see Helen and Hermans, The Outrigger, Lost Isle, Das Cliffhouse, MooresRiverboat and so many others just succumb to deferred maintenance and lack of capitol. I will always cruise up there because there is little else that brings me so much pleasure as putting the hook out in some quiet slough and having a lemonade or two and watching the sun set.

It is a shame. I love that place too. My grandpa would take us out in his boat, he had slipped at McAvoys, in the early 60's. Been hooked ever since.

i cruised the delta twice from Sf in the early 80s. Even then while it was somewhat popular it was run down. perhaps people considered that part of the charm but it seemed to me that most of the places were on their way out because owners could not afford to maintain them for a weekend crowd. Tiki huts, panties on the ceiling and IITYWBAD only work once.

Thanks for the post......I still watch this site as I love the delta so. I will be up there next weekend starting out at B&W going up to Guisti's,...then old town Sac then cruising back down to Stockton . You put a good boat, stocked with world class whiskey and cigars.....can,t get better than that. Let's hope foe a good year for the old swamp

MyBad Posted - Jan 31 2018 : 11:52:16
Much like boating in the Delta. At our marina, the boats just sit and die.

Is getting harder and harder to remember my password. lol Strange that nobody posts here any more. Wonder if putting the link on the California Delta Chambers Newsletter might help.
