This restaurant, located on the Potomac River, had excellent blue crabs and smoked shrimp. It was reasonably priced and the service was excellent. The food was cooked perfectly. It had a wide variety of seafood on the menu, and also had a land-lubber menu.

I’ve always sat inside when it was cooler. Never noticed heaters. I would give them a call to be sure.

I've seen pups on boats and the docks. I don't know if they are allowed onto the restaurant property or not. I don't recall seeing signs. You might want to give them a quick call. Sorry I can't be of more help.
