Absolute hidden gem. I’ve known about Erwin’s for years but never went utill last Saturday night and I was highly impressed. We got the alligator and the steak and shrimp both were perfect and delicious. The chocolate cake was amazing. It’s worth the drive for...sure.More

I loved where the place is out in the country! They have great home cooked food! The customer service is great!!! I just did not like the prices!! Too high! That is the only reason I can not go there as often as I like!

Hidden gem where only locals and curious outsiders would know! If you want a great steak, shrimp, burger, sides, and a beer (or two) with a local friendly feel, swing by Erwin’s. Food, service, and overall experience were well worth traveling off the beaten path....We will be back! Thank you to the friendly Erwins staff for the great experience!More

One of the restaurants we enjoy going to in Covington. They are only open Thurs, Fri, and Sat evenings. We like the nice variety on the menu and the side dishes are very good.

My husband and I were passing through the area on our way home from a trip. We spent the night in Covington, TN. We were looking for a good place to eat and found this place on Trip Advisor. It had mixed reviews but we...decided to give it a try. Boy are we glad we did. The food was excellent. I had a ribeye, cooked perfectly and 3 sides. I couldn’t eat all of the food. The salad was fresh and they brought out wonderful hot rolls with butter. My husband had the Mahi special and 3 sides which he said was really good. Afterwards we just couldn’t resist a piece of homemade chocolate pie that was piled high with meringue. Everything we had was great! They are a little out of the way but well worth the drive.More

If you are going to eat here, make sure it is Friday or Saturday after 5 p.m. (May be open on Thursday but I'm not sure). A variety of good menu items with ample portions. Choices are from steak, shrimp, a variety of other meast,...rolls, veggies, and homemade pies. Mostly grilled choices with no fried items that I can think of, I cannot think of anything that has not been tasty.More

My dinner was great. It was beef,tomatoes,onions over rice. The waitress told me it was simmered overnight. It was a special for that weekend. I decided to get the 'surprise pie' It was delicious. Y'all will see me return soon.

Erwin’s is a short drive outside of Covington bout it’s well worth the drive. The alligator appetizer is the best I’ve ever eaten. Wait staff is very friendly and efficient. Everyone really liked the food they ordered. Bottom line is you will not be disappointed!
