At one time the fish fry was a great deal at 8 bucks for lunch Those days are gone. You get a lot but it is a cheaper fish ( paddock). Frozen crab legs are a good special on Thursday Night. So I am saying nothing special here nothing to Fresh nothing you can't get everywhere else.Fast, Friendly, and kind... More

Service is great. Sea food is also great. One can order some cooked other than fried. I was here with a small group and the food was served for all at the same time which was very exceptional.

Went on Sunday. Promptly seated. Wait staff was excellent. Attentive and efficient. Very pleasant. Food was excellent and served quickly. A lot of food. Everyone was taking a doggy bag. Would have been better, if a little cheaper and less food. One plate easily serves two. I have to remember that next time.

Good food. Fair prices. Good service. I resist the attitude on the part of some restaurants that it is a good idea to give the diner three times as much food as they could ever eat and then run the price up. Pirate's Cove is just such a place. Good place to eat but TAKE YOUR APPETITE.
