This Holiday Season at Rocketts Landing

Post Date: 12-18-2020
As we all know, 2020 has been a year like no other. And here at Rocketts Landing, we’re thankful for all the residents and businesses who call our riverfront community home. While the holiday season may be a bit different this year, remember that every moment counts. And should you want some tasty seasonal and Christmas Eve meals — or help to ring in the New Year — our restaurants have you covered. Here’s a run-down of what you can expect, right along the river.

The Boathouse

Looking for Christmas Eve dinner with a view of the James River? The Boathouse is open for dinner and will be serving their regular menu, plus seasonal dinner specials. Make a reservation or order food to go to enjoy the holiday at home. For Christmas Day, The Boathouse closes, so employees can spend time with family.

New Year’s Eve
If you’d enjoy a 4-course prix-fix meal to help you ring in 2021, The Boathouse has one planned just for the occasion. You can dine in-person, take food to go, or have your celebratory meal delivered straight to your door. Enjoy dishes like Pumpkin Lobster Bisque, Saffron Halibut, Filet & Lobster, and more.

Conch Republic

Our community’s Key West–themed restaurant will close from Christmas Eve through the end of January 2021. So, if you’re craving some of their island eats, be sure to get your fix now! You can enjoy in-person dining and to-go/delivery dishes like Conch Puppies (hush puppies stuffed with conch meat), Crab Cake Chesapeake, Seafood Po’Boy, and more.

For those wanting a more exotic take for the holidays, The Bombay Co.’s Indian-Spanish fusion is you. The restaurant is open for Christmas Eve dinner and will close on Christmas Day to celebrate with family. But, you can still ring in the rest of the holiday season with their tasty tapas. Whether you choose in-person, take out, or delivery, enjoy dishes like Cracker Prawn Dinner, Masala Calamari, Lamb Mango, and more.

From our community to yours, we hope you enjoy a safe and cozy season.
