This is one of our regular hang outs. The trees give shelter on a hot day. Great and relaxing atmosphere. Staff are nice and food is pretty good. The fries and soups are always good. The Wednesday night lobster special is great. Live music in eve is nice as well. They also have a pretty good beer selection on draft.

We visited on a Sunday afternoon and they had a duo singing-they were ok. Lots of families there. Atmosphere is awesome, cooler/more shaded than Beverly Hills Tavern. They have motorcycle parking. The inside restaurant was very nice. Menu looked good. We both ordered broiled crab cakes, they were full of filler and way to hot to eat for most of... More

Island theme with cabanas and steel drums... Food is pricier than a chain restaurant but very good. It gets busy during the weekends so expect a little wait.

What a great getaway without leaving the county ~ a quick drive from the city to the mountain with live music and dancing on certain nights with an interesting food and drink menu!

We've been coming since they opened the Cove. First off all their servers here are maybe a little older than high school snd don't seem to have much experience, if at all and it shows. They had a mix up with drinks and took a lot longer than expected which is fine, but they don't fill the drinks. There's still... More

Nice atmosphere and the outdoor dining area and bar are very large. We had dinner and stayed for drinks as well. Menu is decent, there are different choices for a variety of palates. The out door bar has a pool table, darts and other small amusements. Warning...they do allow smoking out there, but not many people were actually smoking. Very... More

We had a party of 8 for 3:00 pm on Easter 2016. To make this a short and to the point review was hands down the worst buffet and food we have ever eaten and they had the nerve to charge $24.95 for it. Half of the chaffing dishes were empty and the choices were limited. The ham ran out... More

This is an overdue review from December. My friends and I were looking for a place we could catch up over a meal and found Mountain Spring. When we got there, we were hoping that the pirate theme translated into the inside, but alas the Tiki bar was the only Pirate themed area and it was closed. However, what we... More
