Having been a long time fan of the original Cove Restaurant, I was really sad to see them close down. But Low and Behold, they were reopening and that made us happy and anticipating going back to our favorite (and only) wing joint in our small little town! I called them to place a to go order noticing that they... More

Stopped into this fairly new restaurant on the recommendation of a tour company. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the burgers. Fresh bread nice lettuce and trimmings and the burgers were excellent. We had the fried pickles and fried onion rings as well and they were top-notch. I would definitely recommend stopping in at this place anytime

Four of us and all had some type of complaint. Some same as others whose reviews we see. Didn't see server after she took our order until she brought check when we finished. Others brought our food. Refills would have been nice! Not only poor service, but food was expensive. Wings were over 1.00 each no matter what quantity you... More

This restaurant reopened on 11/1/16 under new ownership and management, I was not impressed. The restaurant was refurbished inside which was a nice touch and it looked like they had 2 servers for every customer. Even with the number of servers it took forever to put an order in and forever to get our food. Our server never came back... More

First time back to the cove since the new owners opened it back up. Still looks a lot like it use to. The floors look great. Friendly staff and our order came out quickly. The only restaurant we have in Inverness with access by water via Big Lake Henderson. Our only complaint was the derby sauce didn't seem quite right.... More

Met these folks (owners) at the pine street pub... Opening day today and the place was packed. Had a great burger... They have a couple of good IPA'S(goose island and Stomp Knockers) Great atmosphere and layout... Best of luck to the new owners (same first review as when I went to your pine street pub... :)

I have been to the cove many times and have usually been at least satisfied. They have a large variety of wings, and they are the best. But on our more recent visit, I ordered a fish sandwich, and the fillet was so tiny it was completely overpowered by the at best average quality bun. My companion had the wings,... More

The owner has run into health issues and the cove is now closed. This was an institution which had been in existence as the current building or the old shack which burned down years ago. The wings here were the best in the country in my opinion. The hot and dry nor the Debbies have any other establishments which compare.
