Great atmosphere, fun place to hang out and have some drinks in the warm weather. I have never been overly impressed with the food....but I don't really go there expecting a great meal. It is more about the atmosphere, being outside, having some drinks, etc. I will definitely go again (and again)....but not necessarily for dinner.

This place is something to visit and eat and drink during the summer with their outdoor scenery. Food is excellent. Also a great place to go during the winter, even though the Cove is closed for the season.

Do not go here if you are in a hurry! This is a great place for sitting outside with friends and having conversation and drinks while waiting for your meal. Nothing fancy,just simple but good food. One more thing,I have only ever been there in the spring,summer or fall when it is suitable to be outside. I have never been... More

The ambiance of the outdoor area at Captains Cove is fantastic. It's got an unexpected, relaxed small island vibe nestled in the woods of Mt Penn. A true hiden jem.

Great indoor decor and nice casual dining. The food is well made. The Outside dining is in Spring, Summer, and Fall and is called Captain's Cove. The theme is based on the pirate's cove theme complete with a heated outdoor under roof bar and tables with grass thatched roof's.....a fun eating adventure. Prices are reasonable...

Had dinner here two weeks ago. Food was decent but service took a while despite very sparse crowd. Ordered desert to go which included key lime pie. Got home and tried pie which was spoiled. Immediately called to report and they told me to stop in for reimbursement. Did stop in and they told me manager was not in and... More

Read the good and bad reviews before I went. I have to agree the beautiful setting does deserve better than the cheesy nautical theme but that said it was fun. It was a Friday night with perfect weather for sitting outside. They don’t take reservations for outdoor seating so with the large crowd it was about a 45 minute wait,... More

This place has a large outdoor patio set among old trees if the weather is good, very nice. Otherwise, it has nothing going for it. Food is ok, burgers and sandwiches. Not a place for entrees, stick with a burger. Crabcakes were $23, and not worth it; fish and chips were weird, like fishsticks that were themselves on a stick,... More

This was the second time I have eaten at this place. This time we dined outdoors on the patio. There was a man playing a guitar and singing while we dined which was different but nice. The tables were just outdoor metal round ones with an umbrella and the whole patio had a pirate cove scheme to it. The wait... More
