Rising Water Covers Dock at Lakeside Restaurant in San Marcos During Storm

Decoy Dockside Dining, located at 1025 La Bonita Dr. at Lake San Marcos, experienced slight flooding to its patio dining area overnight

Monday’s powerful winter storm caused flooding around San Diego County, including rising waters on the dock of a lakeside restaurant in San Marcos.

Decoy Dockside Dining, located at 1025 La Bonita Dr. at Lake San Marcos, experienced slight flooding to its patio dining area overnight when the heavy rainfall caused water from the lake to rise, pouring onto the eatery’s dock.

Management told NBC 7 the water covered the dock from about 10 p.m. Monday to 3 a.m. Tuesday. Fortunately, the restaurant did not sustain any serious or permanent damage.

By Tuesday morning the water had subsided. The dockside patio dining area remained wet, but was otherwise unharmed. The restaurant was operating as normal on Tuesday, including lunch service on the dock.

Decoy, with lake views from both its lodge-style dining room and dockside bar, opened late last summer. The restaurant specializes in American cuisine inspired by the great outdoors. This is how the eatery looks on a normal day:

The eatery is located near St. Mark Golf Club. The golf course experienced flooding during the storm, as seen pictured in this photo:
