Diners gave this place high ratings, but our meal was a mixed bag. The steak and spinach were excellent, but the flounder was awful. It tasted like it had been frozen and then forgotten about. I could not eat it. The fries tasted like frozen ones, fresh out of the bag.

Nice family restaurant. Friendly service. Decent prices. Bland food. But lots. Of it. The she crab soup worth the visit. Crab cakes no fillers but no taste. Same with fried fish. Hugh servings but. Too full to finish but not not worth the Bouser bag Again. Sorry

The fish tacos were great, as we're hush puppies and she crab soup. Kelly was great. Wonderful lunch with mother sister, after a great Spa morning. Definitely recommend a visit. The potions were huge.

I have been there several times and the food is consistently good! The amount of food is enormous and really a great value! It is a family place so no luxury here! But the great food makes up for it!

We dine at Pirates Cove often. We have always had excellent food and service. We have recommended Pirates Cove to many of our friends who also enjoy as much as we do. We will continue to dine their ourselves and to recommend to others. We think it is the best seafood restaurant in Chesapeake.

Pirate's Cove is a fun place to go with a large group, although it is fine for smaller groups as well. It is family friendly and everyone can find something they like on the menu. My wife does not like fish, but still manages to find something. My kids love the fried fish. The prices are higher than they used... More

The food and service are average nothing exceptional. Portions are large.. It would be a good idea to check the menu online before you go. The prices have increased. They have a casual sit down atmosphere.prices are above average ......unless you order the daily special. Happy hour prices are available to customers seated at the bar, but not to customers... More

The family has gone here a few times and every time the food has been brought out hot and has always tasted good. I would suggest going here for a none chain seafood restaurant.
