The memory of a popular Prince William County restaurant and crab house still lives on!

If you take a look out the window the boat bar was inside this building and the customers were seated around the bar.

The business is now closed, but the Boat Bar has a new home about 50 miles from Dumfries in Bumpass, Virginia.

This is Remington Geisler’s backyard on five acres of land.

He added Tim’s boat bar to it last week.

Still intact, the boat bar still has pictures of Tim’s Rivershore worshipers on the counter.

Geisler says he grew up with Tim, his mother worked there, and he and his siblings worked there in high school.

When the popular restaurant closed this summer after a rental dispute, Geisler says the owner Tim gave him the boat bar since he has known it since he was a child.

After Geisler posted photos to social media, there was an overwhelming response from customers missing the Dumfries staple, wanting to make the trip to Bumpass to relive the memories.

FOX 5’s Tisha Lewis reports that the boat bar is for family and friends and it’s BYOB.

FOX 5 has contacted Spotsylvania County about this and we are waiting to find out more, but the boat bar is on private property and no alcohol is sold.

The Geisler family are planning a reopening of Tim for a while this spring and we’re told owner Tim along with longtime customers are expected to attend.
