I agree with Steven, apparently I was one of the "redneck morons" referred to by the previous commentary. We were also travelling with children and have been in this situation before, where some enjoy themselves well past what might be comfortable or reasonable for another boater. When faced with this situation, the easy and obvious solution is quite simple: untie your boat and go anchor elsewhere. Don't expect the 10-15 boats around you to quiet down at 9pm when you come out slinging insults and screeching like a mad woman. Also, when you start shrieking at the owner of the establishment in front of other patrons you simply make a spectacle of yourself and do absolutely nothing to resolve an issue.
That being said, the owner could have made an effort to mitigate the situation by handling it like a reasonable business owner should have. I guess when the tone is set for him, he just followed suit. It should be noted that there are no "curfew" signs posted, and had we been asked to quiet down in a respectful, mature manner, we would have been more than happy to comply. The owner mimicked the complainer’s actions by yelled profanities at one of the woman in our group, two inches from her face. We have been here on numerous occasions, and this is the first time we've ever experienced this type of treatment from the owner or from other boaters.
We enjoyed ourselves none-the-less as we understand this isn't a regular occurrence and was sparked by one boat on the dock, who somehow felt entitled to holler and throw a temper tantrum at a group of more than 30 people while no one else had an issue with it. We put this behind us. I would still recommend this place to anyone with this in mind - you reap what you sow; if you act like a redneck moron, you should expect to be treated like one.
