Recently while in the SML area we visited the marina. Nothing really exceptional stood out. The children love to freed the large fish that are there and there are some little shops and restaurants. We chose to eat at Chopsticks Chinese and a big let down. The buffet was mediocre and the food was about the same. Nothing to get... More

We are loyal customers and when things we’ve paid for are what we expected or more, we gladly say so. When they’re not, we think others should know. We rented a jet ski from BRIDGEWATER MARINA recently. We had a couple of conversations with the owner, Roy, that didn’t go well about our jet ski and how it was operating.... More

We rented a Glastron boat from the marina for a week. The air conditioning was broken like every time we have been there so it was miserable trying to get out of there...we asked for a map and the owner told me we could buy one! We just dropped $1200.00 and more from tshirts and now the boys wanted a... More

I say that because of the multitude of restaurant choices, arcade, ice cream parlor and shops. It's packed out in the summer so don't expect to walk in Sunday at noon On a Holiday weekend without waiting but it's probably the ideal venue by boat (plenty of slips) or car at SML.

Early in the season, so a few of the new staff didn't know the rental rules or options. So calling ahead with requests to pick up late, and inquire about return times were met with different responses. The owners are on top of things to make it work out. The pontoon boat itself was great, and made for a wonderful... More

We were traveling through the area and stopped at Bridgewater Plaza to get a look at the lake. We inquired about rentals and ended up on a 2 hour sightseeing tour in a rented pontoon. Our rental was a newer tritoon with a large engine. We were quickly able to see most of the lake. Staff was very helpful and... More

this is a really neat place to visit on SML....several places to eat, live bands, ice cream shops, gift shops, boat gas (no public launch) and games for kids....all connected by wooden docks/walkways that make this really cool place....this is one of those spots you can pull up to on your boat, if you can find a "parking spot" and...

Really nice people. really poor experience. Rented a 190 HP boat to water ski. Took a 6 day rental and received an old worn out boat that would not pull us out of the water on a slalom ski. They have better boats, but ours did not meet our needs. When we asked why the boat seemed underpowered we learned... More

The Bridgewater Marina is just one of the businesses at Bridgewater Plaza. If you are trying to map out places you want to go in the area, check the address because there are a lot of them right here in this same complex, including a Smith Mountain Lake visitor's center. We went today to check on prices to rent a... More

This marina supplies various locations on Smith Mountain Lake, VA with rental boats. We called a phone # for a marina at our resort and the call was forwarded to the marina. The incompetent employee at the marina never informed us our call had been forwarded and our rental boat contract was now at a location 30 minutes by car... More
