Description
The Cove is an old "fish camp" that has been Inverness's best kept secret! We are the only restaurant available on the water. Come on out and enjoy a relaxing country setting and swing in the swings down by the water. If you are coming by boat we have an entrance for airboats and an entrance for pleasure craft. Large parties welcome, reservations accepted. We also cater large events down by the water so if you are looking for a venue, think of us! Come check it out.
