April 12, 2021: Kent Island’s Opening Day!! (Kent Island Crab Decks and Dock Bars)

For Kent Island locals and visitors alike, the unofficial start of summer is when the Kent Island Dock Bars are open. After a year of restrictions that are finally lifting, people are anxious to be out by our beautiful bay and on the Kent Narrows. Accessible by car or boat, Kent Island’s crab restaurants and decks are hotspots for summer fun for families, couples, friends, and wedding parties.

Here’s a list of Kent Island dock bars opening this week as well as more restaurants that will open their outside seating as weather allows.

When you visit this season, make sure to tell them you saw it on ilovekentisland.com
