Really Good Burgers!

First time at the Cove. Now, my family and I are not drinkers, but if you were; I understand they have 100 bourbons to choose from! We went for the food. We had calamari as an appetizer. Fairly good. For our dinner I ordered their Mushroom Swiss burger with fries. Really good! My daughter... read more

Service was good, but food could use some sprucing. I ordered the buffalo chicken salad, and for the price,that could have used some chicken. All I tasted was batter. Hard, thin batter. But its a decent sports bar with lots of tv, so great for sports fan.

This is the only bar that offers Founders Breakfast Stout on tap all year. The first time I bought a growler they charged $15, second time $20, third time $17 and yesterday $30. That did not include the growler, as I brought my own. $30 to fill a growler is simply price gouging - I'll never go back!

The Cove is by far my favorite hangout in York. Always a great time. Food is excellent and beer is plentiful! It's great for dinner, a night out, or a show in the whiskey bar.

I want to start off by saying that Tom, our server, was excellent! We brought 18 to the Cove for lunch. It wasn't busy at all, yet he hustled and made sure that we all got what we needed. This level of service is a rarity these days, but much appreciated! Thanks again, Tom! We enjoyed the large, spacious dining... More

This gem sits just outside the city. Great pub food! Especially like the steak and shrimp wrap, but the Brisket nachos are terrific! Large on tap selection of craft brews also. We go there several times a month.

The Cove has a lot of what I like. They have a large variety of beers and a whiskey bar. There is outdoor seating that looks over a creek and the atmosphere inside is nice as well. There are plenty of tv's to watch sports. If you are into the late night scene, they have live music on many nights.... More

My wife and I frequent this restaurant at least once a week (if not more) for over three years. She really enjoys their quesadillas and I'm privy to their buffalo chicken wrap, but everything on the menu is pretty awesome. They have a fantastic craft beer menu and their outside seating is great when the temperature is right. The seating... More

We met at the Cove for our monthly gathering. This is the first time we visited this fine restaurant. For sure it will not be our last. Tables were set up, ice water on the tables, lemon wedges on a platter. Lunch was to be at 12 menus and specials were at each setting. Waitresses greeted us as we came... More
