Sligo Marina’s Chow House Churning Out Fresh Grub

The Wheelhouse Restaurant at Sligo Marina is firing up the grill for the season.

Fifty or so hardcore fans of the on-the-water eatery just east of Smithville braved balmy temperatures and blue skies on Friday to celebrate the launch of 2016’s sun-soaked session of spring-and-summer fun.

Sligo Marina Maniacs

Chris Batty is steering the Wheelhouse this year. He said Center Hill Lake customers ought to sail on in with high hopes and healthy appetites.

“We’re going to provide fresh quality food with excellent customer service, that’s our plan,” Batty promises.

Batty’s hoping the grade A prime rib, succulent sea food, ample-sized sandwiches, hand-prepped burgers and fresh-battered chicken tenders keep lake lubbers cruising back for moor all season long.

The Wheelhouse Restaurant hours of operation are Friday’s 4:00 PM to 2:00 AM, Saturday’s 8:00 AM to 2:00 AM, and Sunday’s 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
