Georgetown: Nick's Riverside Grill & Kayaking at the Key Bridge Boathouse

Sunday was a beautiful day so Teddy and I decided to head to Georgetown for lunch at Nick's Riverside Grill and kayaking at the Key Bridge Boat House afterwards. 

Teddy ordered the Crab Cake Sandwich. This was decent, would have preferred a little more crab but the overall flavor was good. 
I ordered Nick's Burger grilled Tasso ham, caramelized onion, cheddar cheese & basil aioli. I thought this was pretty lack luster, all I could taste on the burger was char and none of the toppings were able to cover that taste up. Teddy ended up eating this for me (along with his crabcake) by drenching it in ketchup.
I was not a big fan of the food here and the service was kind of spotty, but I feel people come here more for the environment then food or service. If you want to sit outside on a hot day with a cold beer, staring out at the water and people then this is the place for you.

After lunch we walked over to the Key Bridge Boathouse. For $15 an hour (kayaking, paddle boarding or canoeing) it's a steal and you can go two different directions on the river, one towards the Monuments and the other direction. We chose the other direction because I'd never been that way before. It was a nice, woodsy way and an all around good time. 


  1. Well at least the kayaking was fun! :)

  2. Looks like you had a great time with delicious food, jealous!
