Great pizza

We were staying nearby, so went on a food hunt. The Cove is one of those local places where the neighborhood people seem to go. The ambience is bare bones, but clean. The pizza was excellent. We should have ordered a medium, though, as the large was enormous.

I love a few miles from the Cove, so it is my go to pizza place. The pies are always fresh and delicious. Their crust is not to thin or thick and is never over bearing. The salads are delicious and the staff is attentive. Very neat dining area with both inside and outside seating.

We were staying at a hotel right off I-75 and wanted a "home town" meal, not a chain. An internet search turned up The Cove at Lake Blackshear. Wow are we glad we decided to make the drive (about 20 minutes from our hotel). We had a great time and the food was delicious! Cold beer (bottle only, no draft).... More

We eat at The Cove fairly often and are never disappointed. It's the perfect place to grab a bite of delicious food that's all taste and no presumption. Great atmosphere and the pizza is on a whole different level!

This was our first visit to The Cove. One of the other camphosts at the GA Veterans Memorial State Park had recommended it. Said the pizza was very good. Friday nights are BUSY!!! There were no tables available when we arrived (a little after 7) so we sat at the bar where we had a good view of the waitresses.... More

Never a bad experience eating at The Cove. It's located right on the main highway near Lake Blackshear and the bridge. It looks small, but it goes back with several dining areas and a outside area as well. The owner &staff handles the crowd fine and your order arrives promptly. Be sure to try the "Kitchen Sink"..it's a pizza that... More
