The view, despite the industrial location, is great looking out at the islands. The food however, french fries, nachos or anything requiring deep fried is over the top with grease and not very good. The kitchen could use some professional help.

Nice seafood choices in the menu and overall excellent food. Decor is a little outdated. Very casual, don't dress up to go there.

Secret Cove Restaurant - has a great outdoor deck bar. Had drinks and appetizers with co-workers. Food and drink were great...service was OK. Overall I'd do it again when in town.

Hi, I would call them directly and ask about open hours and the menu - 362-982-2008. I know they have been open on some holidays - like Easter, but I don't know about Thanksgiving this year.
