Sitting on the deck over the cove is a treat - and the seafood is excellent. Worth the trip to South Bristol.

I love to find places that are not right in the heart of the touristy area and this is it. To get the Wonderful view make sure you make reservations! I had the haddock special and it was wonderful! So fresh and delicious! Friendly staff!

Coveside's location alone is a reason to dine there. By land or by sea, folks come from all around for the dockside views. Good for bringing Fido along, too. Foodwise, it seems we have had better at the Coveside in the past. The fried Haddock and fried clams provide a reliable menu item. Other dishes seem to be a bit... More

The Coveside was located near the cottage we rented and was recommended by the owners of the cottage. We went for a family meal and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had spent the day paddle boarding and kayaking so arrived to the restaurant hungry. For appetizer, we had crab cakes and buffalo wings. For our main course, I had the haddock... More

The food was average. Service was great and prices were reasonable. The view from the outside deck is amazing!! There's not much else around the area, but it was worth the drive for the photos!!!

Beautifully located on a small bay with tied up boats floating in the harbour, the restaurant has a lot to offer, not the least a nice outside terrace on which to enjoy the view. Nice selection of beers though wine list is very limited. Food can be hit or miss, the crab cakes as starters were excellent, but fries were... More

This restaurant is perched on the edge of Christmas Cove, and the views from the deck are wonderful. The food has improved in recent years, and the bar has good local brews available. The yachting decor matches the patrons, including summer residents, year-round locals, and visiting sailors who stop at this restaurant while moored in the Cove. There is usually... More

This restaurant has one of the best views in Maine, good food and friendly staff. We had a burger and crab cakes and salad....all served promptly and all very good. You add this to the view and you have a truly great place for lunch or dinner.

Coveside Restaurant has a casual, but delightful, ambience. The service is friendly, and the seafood offerings seldom disappoint. The setting on Christmas Cove is perfect - for lunch or dinner. Lobster, of course, and good "baskets". But if Halibut is on the menu don't miss it!
