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

Had the patti melt burger and one side was burnt and that side was presented down when served Didnt know until I bit into it and tasted the burnt flavor. The burger was over cooked as well. By the time waitress came back to ask... 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... :)

Was good casual food, could get there by boat. Too bad it's closed now. Had great wings and burgers with friendly wait staff.

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.

In spite of Wings costing more, you get less as carrots are no longer being served with the Wings!! A tiny bit of stringy celery comes with your Wings and carrots are no longer available because they cost too much so they say. I don't know about you, but the new flat screens have to be worth a lot of... More

Went here a few years ago when we were over from the UK and went back today. Service was great allthough the bar was fairly quiet and the food excellent. The prices were better than before and the plastic cups have gone replaced with nice glasses and the servings come with proper chips not skinny fries now.

We were just there tonight. They have never advertised and don't even have a sign letting you know where to turn. People will now tell you to turn at the Dollar store just outside of town going towards I-75. IF you have never been, be warned, it don't look like much from the outside. The inside is a trip. The...
