Leadbelly’s at Fairport Marina Reedville Virginia – Old School Marina Magic.
Here is Reedville Virginia sometimes it feels like time has just stood still for years, heck decades. And we like it that way. One of the cool classic places to hang, is “Leadbelly’s” Restaurant at the Fairport Marina right across from the Stack.
The stack you ask? Its an old smoke stack that’s a landmark in the area.
Anyway, right across from the plant and the stack is a very nice and friendly place to park your old boat and grab an old school crab cake and timeless sud. The staff is very nice and the decor, well, lets just day its PERFECT! Like the Palm Gardens in Florida, it has a certain something that can only be mastered by time, and just having fun.
So next time your in Reedville .. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA, OK if you are ever in Reedville.. HAHAHAHAHAA, OK if you have a hang out like this in your area. Let us know. These are the must visit fun places around the country and deserve your business. Now, true to the image they don’t have a website! Hell ya! But they do have a facebook page.
Do you have to have Iron Guts to eat at Leadbelly’s? (Just sayin’)
Texx, nice to hear from you again. I was wondering where you were hiding!
We don’t have a Leadbelly’s but one of our favorite spots to visit is Trevett Country Store. They will sell you beer and wine, but since they don’t have a liquor license are not supposed to drink it on the premises. (IF you happen to be drinking something out of a travel mug they don’t usually ask too many questions) The place is very rustic with old worn wood floors and though they will not ask you to leave if you are not wearing shoes they will warn you to be careful not to get splinters or nails in your feet. They serve some of the best lobster rolls, crab rolls, and fried haddock in the area. They also have burgers, dogs, and chicken fingers for those who do not like seafood.
While eating on the outside deck you may even be privileged with the entertainment of the mechanical swing bridge being opened and closed.
This is their dock.
Barneys island, Grass Lake, Illinois. Hard to describe. You really have to go there.
Thursday for the races is best.
Hey, Jim….do you mean Blarney’s Island? The place with the laddie’s undergarments on the ceiling and the hello pad? You are right…hard to describe but fun as hell!
I am from the area and never heard of or been to that place…neat!
Cruised for the fourth! Go Boating!

Ben down to Reedville several times and didn’t ever see that. Now looking at it on Google maps, I see why – it’s not where the museum is. Now we have yet another reason to drive down to Reedville,
Its got no name on it, and kinda invisible. But is at a large marina on the left on your way in.
Looks like a great place! Wish we had something like that around here (Ohio River mile 530).
Reminds me of The Thirsty Otter, where I enjoyed a Spotted Cow and cheeseburger with the boys today.
