We asked a local where to eat. We did not want to hit one of the typical tourist spots. There it was, right on the corner on Route 1. Colorful exterior with fire pit tables, all lit up. It was hot so we sat inside to cool down. The menu surprised us, since we just assumed it would be plain... More

We were actually looking for ice cream or dessert but after seeing this cafe after dark with it's pretty lighting and fire pit tables, we decided to go ahead and have a light dinner and then dessert. Delicious and great atmosphere! Beautiful mandevillas!

Loved everything about this place really. It's got great indoor and outdoor seating, the food is delicious and a great location. I had the baked scallops and they were out of this world good. We would definitely return should we be in the area again.

Visited here for a late lunch. Poor beer selection. Lobster bisque was good, but fish and chips were below par. Hubby's steak and cheese sandwich was average. There were two cheese choices and when he asked for both was told he could not get both. Would not recommend this one.

Slow service. Never had lobster roll before but not impressed. Lobster roll was nothing special-no dressing, sauce or butter. Just bread and lobster. Maybe that is how they are supposed to be. Complimentary fudge at end of meal was nice touch

We wanted a late lunch/early dinner and saw this place while walking and decided to check it out. We opted to sit outside even though it was chilly and damp and were so glad we did. Each table outside had it's own firepit in the center to ward off the chill. Waitress was young, very attentive and pleasant. Food was... More

I will start this review that this review is really about how kind they were to us outside of their normal opening hours. We were walking around in the rain about 30 minutes before they were to open and they saw us and asked if we needed anything. We told them we were looking around for hot chocolate and they... More

After eating at this restaurant I paid with a credit card and included the gratuity. I received my credit card statement and noticed that Rose Cove Restaurant charged a different amount to my credit card (more). I called the restaurant several times over a week and an employee by the name of D*** stated that the manager was not in.... More

Lobster salad is fantastic. The salad is full of lobster and includes walnuts and strawberries. Service is good.
