Always good to relax on an afternoon and eat oysters

This is now called pirates cove, it is a small place and seating mainly outside, so if it's raining it sometimes shuts, we go here every time we are in Port Ruchey, the oysters are delicious and it is situated on the canal.

The place has turned unto a dump. I have been frequenting the place for the last 10 years through its evolution of owners and it has reached a new low. I do not understand why this has happened because the place has so much potential. I could go on but what's the point. STAY AWAY.

Ordered raw oysters, which were good, however the bacon wrapped scallops were nothing to write home about. The tap beer was warm, and tried two different types. The waitress was attentive, and really great. The inside of "The Cove" is dark, and seems more like a garage atmosphere. There was live blues/jazz music outside on Friday & Saturday night, but...

Had hoped for more but since it was our 1st time we decided to be safe and just order appetizers and drinks. So glad we did! We ordered what they called spinach, artichoke & crab dip and potato skins w/ bacon & cheese. The dip was mostly spinach. No crab or artichoke found. The waiter said they 'grind it all... More

First I must say the service is horrendous! We were seated and never actually got waited on. I had to ask for menus and the girl that got our drinks never came back. However she had lots of time to flirt with a table full of biker guys. Just totally ignored us! I had to ask another waitress to take... More

They have great food and even better Happy Hour and weekly food specials.. You have to try the Oysters obviously lol.. Bottom line is whoever you are you will... More
