We have been going here since the first week they opened. Our favorite is Thursday Crab Legs. You get two sides and hush puppies. YUMMY! The spinach casserole is not to be missed. I would love the recipe! We have never had a bad meal here and since they have expanded, it doesn't take long to be seated.

I can never eat desert after having a meal at Pirate's Cove. I do go back and have a coffee and short cake that is to die for! It is a must to share it with someone.

If you want chicken it is very good. Pork good. As above the spinach casserol is fabulous, and by ordering a double serving you can have desert and still stay less than 900 calories. Prices are very reasonable, and service is good to outstanding.

Chesapeake's best kept secret. Sunday is the best, more fish than you can eat plus two sides. Great place, food is delicious and service is fast. Have to go often and the best hush puppies. One of my favorite places.

Awesome service, wonderful food. Had the crab cakes, they were really great! Definitely go if you are in the area. Very busy restaurant, make a reservation. We also had the calamari for appetizer which was delicious. Everyone was very happy in our party of 9

This unassuming restaurant in a strip mall has exceptionally good seafood. we especially love the fried oysters. Salads were just ok.service is very friendly. they have nice outdoor seating too. This is our favorite restaurant in Chesapeake.

Pretty good seafood, clean establishment, clean servers, diverse employees. ........ but customer service from servers needs work. .....I come here about 6 times a year and everytime we seem to be really rushed by servers..... And servers dont listen well..... but the food is really good

A locals favorite! We found this new place about 8,9 or 10 years ago. Nothing fancy from the outside (in Food Lion shopping center) we hoped it would make. NO WORRIES! That's the only reason I didn't give it a 5 star rating. It's busy for certain. But it's well worth the 20 minute wait. Try the blackened rock fish... More
