We came here with friends on a Sun evening. The restaurant is small and does not take reservations but it is worth the wait at the bar for a table. The food is marvelous...with two caveats. The onion soup was salty and the seafood bisque was bland and flavorless. The filet mignon however was fork... read more

We went here for Restaurant Week for the first time, as we were told by many that we had to try it. The food and atmosphere lived up to my expectations. The only disappointing part were the hidden charges I was never told about. They advertise that you will be charged extra for twice baked potatoes and caesar salads, yet... More

You can read other reviews classifying this establishment as nothing more than a "neighborhood bar" which is a somewhat extreme. Kennedy's Cove is not fancy, not big & not elaborate. At the end of the day, their prices dictate certain expectations to the quality of meal. When you charge mid/high $30 to $40 and above for steaks, they need to... More

I took my girlfriend on our first date here back in 2008 because I knew it was awesome having been there before. Over the years we've gone back several times, and each time it's gotten worse and worse. The staff is still nice, but the quality of the food seems to downgrade each time we go. The last couple times... More

Starters a Bombay sapphire and tonic for myself and a Bacardi and diet for my wife. Steamed clams sound great! Nope none of those . How about mussels then. Well nope none of those either. Okay the calamari ? Sure . I think if McDonald's put calamari in there menu they would do better than Kennedys Cove. This is not... More

One of the best steaks ever! To start the Seafood Bisque, and Steak Vegetable soup were wonderful. We all had the Rib Eye with the blackened seasoning and everyone raved about its flavor. The Filet was tried by my son on a previous visit and can't go wrong with that as well.The twice baked potatoes were huge. My son said... More

Cute cozy comfortable restuarant. know for their blackened steak, this place offers exceptional food. From appitizers to dessert; everything is high quality and hard to beat. I suggest the banana pepper shrimp appetizer which consists of jumbo shrimp sauteed with banana peppers in a banana pepper cream sauce... then the blackened filet which comes with a huge baked potato or...
