Great wings

Great wings...dry or wet...spicy or not...and the beer is always cold...lots of choices. Their burgers are always popular, but I go for the wings and beer.

We ordered 3 pounds of wings for pickup. Got them home and there was a total of 16 small wings, so I called and related to them my displeasure for which the manager stated that I could pick up 2 wings that I was shorted; taking the stance that 6 wings equaled one pound. I thought that the box seemed... More

This restaurant is nothing fancy and difficult to find if you are not a local. Wings are what they are known for so ordering anything else may not be the best idea. I will say that over the last 10 years the wings have gotten smaller but still delicious. Each time we visit the area we still stop in for... More

Disappointing from previous visits. Burger was good but for almost $8, it should include fries or even chips. The wings had their tasty special sauce However, at $1 were tiny and WAY overpriced The $3.95 salad was a little lettuce in a little cereal-sized bowl. A side of onion rings for $6.95? That is what the burger should have cost.... More

I went to the Cove with my parents and boyfriend thinking it would be a good place to go. I was completely wrong. We get there and it took a long time to get service when all the servers where just standing at the bar goofing off. When we finally get service the server didn't seemed to know the menu... More

I'm a chicken wing fanatic and I fell in love with The Cove many years ago. I was so excited to have gone back to my hometown and stop by my favorite restaurant as a child. I highly recommend trying the Debbie wings. The sauce they use is the best I've ever tasted. Every time I travel back home I... More

It's off of Hwy.44 and along side a convenience store. Long driveway with speed bumps. Be careful. In sorta a, once use to be, campground. It's a pole building. It DOES NOT LOOK LIKE THE PICTURE AT ALL!!! Inside it looks dumpy and old. The pipes show in the ceiling, and it never appears to be clean, even though it... More

My parents live outside of Ocala, and this place is one of their favorite little roadtrips, It's true, if you sneeze, you could miss the sign for it, and it's in the middle of nowhere. The inside of it, is much larger than what it looks like on the outside. This place is old school, all box TVs, and lots... More

Tonight we try out the cove because a friend said they had great wings. The exterior of the building reminds me of a warehouse. I was told it was on the water. There was water that was like a swamp and could not be see from inside. The tables and chairs are all different heights, sizes, styles and quite old.... More

Had been at the Cove one other time 7 years ago. Remembered the awesome wings. Went back with a few coworkers as we were traveling from Wildwood to Inverness. The place is huge. The poor girl behind the bar has to wait 4 to 8 tables and run the bar at lunch. The food was awesome, I got the wings... More
