Hidden Gem Literally

Stopped in for a couple of pops and wings. Been a couple of times before and I have to say their wings are the best by far south of Buffalo, NY! The dry mild are excellent, crispy and not over flavored. The others were wet garlic which were good. Pops are cold, service was great. The atmosphere and... read more

Have been eating here every year for about 8 years when we come to visit family. First few years we couldn't wait to go and eat at The Cove. Food was always hot and fresh and served promptly. My family that lives locally would usually pick this restaurant as the meeting spot for dinner. This year they decided to go... More

If you are love crispy, perfectly seasoned wings and friendly service, this is your place. The "Debbie" wings are like nothing you will ever have anywhere else. Nothing fancy, just great wings and cold beer at a really good price. Wayyyy off the beaten path and most certainly a locals favorite.

If you're in Inverness, and looking for good wings...or a big burger, this is the place to go. Good food and plenty of it. A little on the noisy side, but worth the trip. Good service, good food and plenty of it.

The Cove is a great place for sandwiches, seafood and beer. It is located off the road but easy to find. Their hamburgers are to die for--and wings. Draft beer is always cold. We see lots of kids with their parents although your first impression is that of a bar. Very kid friendly.

Waiter did not take order correctly. Food over cooked then under cooked at the second try.When we walked the place was empty and the people seemed bothered that they had to do their job.God forbid a paying customer get service they pay for. Wish I had NOT come here for dinner.

Probably the best wings in Citrus County! Prices are fine and the place is quiet. There's a small lake right next to the parking lot where you can relax after eating all the wings!
