Dining Out at Tims Ford Lake


Bluegill Grill

Situated in a cozy cove on Tims Ford Lake, The Blue Gill is a floating restaurant at Holiday Landing Marina that has a great relaxed lake atmosphere that is fun for all ages. The kids will love feeding the fish, ducks and turtles. Be sure to try the local favorite Dickel Drop! Bluegill is closed Mid-September until April

Hard Dock Cafe

Hard Dock Cafe at Tims Ford Marina has outdoor seating by the docks on colorful picnic tables. It's sometimes hard to please everyone in a big family with lots of kids and adults, but The Hard Dock Cafe is a favorite for everyone in our crew. Hard Dock Cafe is open for breakfast and is the only marina restaurant on Tims Ford Lake that is open year-round. Check out the breakfast bar during peak season.

Drafts & Watercrafts

Located at the newest marina on Tims Ford Lake, you can't miss Drafts & Watercrafts, a large open air restaurant that offers live music and lake views. Reservations recommended. (Closes around October during the off-season, reopens in April)


Piezan Pizzeria Italiano

Piezan is relatively new on the square in downtown Winchester and is already very popular. We love the cheesy garlic bread and gourmet pizza. Reservations are recommended. Piezan also delivers pizza and family style dinners, but be sure to order very early because delivery slots fill up quickly.


Sunrise, The Breakfast Place

Just beyond downtown Winchester, you'll find a local favorite breakfast spot with fantastic entrees, both sweet and savory. Due to its popularity and great food, you might find a line out the door on weekends, but the line moves quickly and it's worth the wait.


Ice cream at Lakeview Marina

There’s no better way to cool off than taking a break for ice cream at Lakeview Marina. Accessible by road or lake, this marina serves delicious ice cream perfect for hot summer days. Closes around October during the off-season, reopens in April


Mot's Shaved Ice

Kids of all ages love shaved ice for a sweet treat. Mot's Shaved Ice is located in downtown Winchester and has lots of unique flavors or you can create your own - hours may be limited, so make sure they are open before you head to downtown Winchester.
