There is a public dock, located at Dowler Park in Coal Center. There are a few tables for a picnic lunch overlooking the water. You can park your boat at the Coal Center Public Docks and head up the bank to Lagerheads. This is a beautiful stretch of the river, and Lagerheads is an excellent restaurant and bar right next to the water that offers outdoor seating. While relaxing here, you may even get the chance to see a barge go by.
