“Strange menu for dinner”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

There is a top end menu $26 for prime rib or a bottom end $14 or less for hamburger with fries or chicken wings but nothing priced in between. My wife ordered the turkey with mashed potato but no mash so that was out. How can you run out of mash spuds. The fries were coated, soggy and texture like chewing gum. $7 for poutine how can that be justified. The setting is pretty but the menu needs a complete overhaul and pricing too.

In deference to this reviewer, I am at a loss to respond to this review, as what is written about our menu is simply not the case. I think you can divulge that from the many positive comments we have received. Thanks

“Incredible patio with live music”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Had lunch here Canada Day weekend on their beautiful multi-leveled patio, with live music playing. The theme for the day was a "Tiki-lounge", so they had a special bar set up where they were shaking/making all sorts of tropical drinks. Lots of fun, a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon, so relaxing.

Food was delicious, lunchtime fare that was not over-the top - with a gourmet twist.

“Good spot for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We stopped here for a quick lunch and were not disappointed. We both ordered the lunch salad special which came with lots of goat cheese and plenty of nuts and fruits. The service was friendly and the atmosphere pleasant. I would certainly eat here again!

“Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

We were staying at the Cove for two nights, and enjoyed the restaurant for drinks Friday, breakfast both mornings and dinner Saturday. Casual, fun, great staff, excellent food & drink! I just can not say enough about this place!

“A stop for a beer and snack”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

We camp not far from Westport and go the The Cove for a snack and a beer a few times a year. The food is pretty good but we just order the pub fare so can't comment on the other items on the menu. The service is pretty good but this time it was slow because there was a gaggle of 14 and 11 people but we were in no rush. We would recommend going there. There sometimes is a wedding in the garden.
