Lunch four times over the last couple of years, and never a bad meal. The last time was in the back room by the window overlooking the river...... and it was wonderful. We elected to have several appetizers as shared variety with a lite fruity Blue Moon to take care of the road dust. We ve always had later lunches so service has never been a problem. Atmosphere is relaxing and always repeatable.
While we were in Occoquan we ate lunch at Madigan s Waterfront Restaurant at 201 Mill Street. It was a hot day but we still opted to eat outside, overlooking the river, where they were dredging. Romantic? Not really but it didn t smell like a river, so that s something. :) Plus we got to see geese and ducks.
One of the more popular dining destinations in historic Occoquan is the locally owned Madigan s Waterfront. As its name suggests, the restaurant is located right on the Occoquan River and specializes in seafood dishes, as well as steaks, pasta and poultry. Madigan s also has plenty of live oysters year round, with the local Chesapeake variety being a big draw in the fall. The restaurant s Sunday brunch is very popular as is their outdoor deck, which provides a fun spot for a large bar with TVs, daily happy hours, live music, entertainment and karaoke. It you re boating down the Occoquan, public boat docking and slip rentals are available.
