Tim’s Rivershore closure was not part of Potomac Shores’ original plan




In 2012, the developers of Potomac Shores hosted a series of “Get to Know Us” meetings in Woodbridge.

Part of a social mixer and PowerPoint presentation, the events served to explain how the waterfront neighborhood of Potomac would be built and showcase its upcoming amenities.

These types of social gatherings were common before the pandemic, you will remember. That and the news of Potomac Shores’ decision to force Tim’s Rivershore restaurant – a Prince William County mainstay onto the river for the past 30 years – are indications of how times and priorities are changing.

Restaurant owner Tim Bauckman told patrons that neighborhood developer and landowner chose not to renew his lease. Although he did not respond to my request for comment, reports the promoter, who was based in California but is now represented by a New York company, wants to set up a new restaurant by the river.

The decision devastated locals who love Tim’s (I’m one of them – we pulled our boat to Tim’s Wharf last fall, as the leaves on the trees were exploding in color, for a midday lunch) . A petition to save the restaurant is now circulating on the web.

Throwing Bauckman off his perch by the river wasn’t always the plan. At one of those ‘Get to Know Us’ meetings in 2012 held at the Southbridge Community Center, a spokesperson for the promoter said he liked that Tim’s Rivershore had such a fan base and that the last thing he wanted to do was oust a small business owner.

But now the developer of Potomac Shores has done to Tim what Gov. Ralph Northam’s coronavirus restrictions couldn’t – force it shut.

I interviewed Bauckman last May when those restrictions – which are still in place – started to ease a bit. He thanked customers for his Potomac Shores location, and a second location at Lake Anna, for keeping his employees and business afloat.

Two of its other locations, both on the Potomac River – Fairview Beach, King George County, and Coles Point, Westmoreland County, suffered during lockdowns.

A successful small business, Bauckman told us he employed up to 100 people during the busy summer months. Now he’s going to start going out of business, with plans to turn off the lights next month.
