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...

I cannot complain about anything really. Tiffany was our fabulous server. We waited a while but there was a private party inside. Once the food came out, we were in heaven. We ordered a variety and everything was absolutely delicious so the wait was worth it. Looking out over water, soft breeze, Good music and we left satisfied.

The wings are fantastic. I recommend the Debbie sauce. Good food and cheap beer. Service can be a bit slow if it is busy, but people always go back.

We went to the Cove last night and enjoyed ourselves. I had a big salad and wings. The wings were wonderful. Mine were medium hot but weren't really that hot. They were good. My wife had a fish dinner. She said it was good. The restaurant was a big building with a bar. They serve only beer...no hard stuff. The... More

Debby wings are hands down the best wings around. Its too bad the service doesnt match the food. Its not that its inexperienced help, or even a lack of help, its the help thats been there for years that seems to have an attitude. Too bad, great food, lousy service.
