Dock Construction for Restaurants in Knoxville

There’s something so fun and adventurous about boat-friendly restaurants and bars. Waterfront establishments can generate more traffic and buzz by adding a dock or pier so people can easily grab a bite or a drink without having to go back home.

Knoxville Barge is your full-service commercial dock builder for restaurants along the Tennessee River or at Tellico Lake, Fort Loudoun Lake, and other nearby waterways. We excel at building structurally sound, long-lasting docks that are also attractive enough to add real value to your restaurant.

Request a consultation to discuss dock replacement or new dock construction for restaurants in the Knoxville area.

Open Up Possibilities with Restaurant Docks

Without a dock, waterfront restaurants can be poorly accessible to much of your local community. Add some boat slips, or even a floating pier for outdoor dining, and you can see a lot more “foot traffic” from local boaters.

Whether you serve simple burgers and hot dogs or fish tacos and cocktails, consider the benefits of building a dock for a restaurant:

  • Attract more families and groups
  • Create a better waterfront dining experience
  • Serve breakfast and lunch to fishermen
  • Generate word-of-mouth interest in your business

Other establishments such as bait shops and marinas can also add a dock or pier for outdoor dining to expand their business and draw more customer in the door.
