If you want a good sea food meal then want no more! Loved the food and the staff was very professional. Tried new things and loved it!

Went there with some friends around Dinner time on a Sunday. Restaurant was packed, but service and seating was prompt. Food arrived quickly, despite it being so crowded. Everything was done as ordered with no issues with the food. Would definitely go back.

This is second review- We came back because the owner replied to my previous review which I think showed integrity and a true interest in customer service/satisfaction. This trip- I had oysters (which were really good) and I believe my husband had pollock- which he loved. I'm not a fan of the hush puppies, but that's just a taste/texture preference,... More

You have to go here for the Friday Lunch special. Their fish and chips is amazing! Monster portions, you will most likely be asking for a take home box because you can't finish this meal. It's so so good!

My wife and I have different opinions of Pirate's Cove. I'm less impressed than she is with it. She loves the spinach casserole. I think the food is average and the décor is subpar.

Our first time at Pirates Cove, and met another couple who recommended it. It is in a strip mall next to a Food Lion, but much larger inside than it appears and has numerous banners outside reflecting past awards. We went early on a Saturday, 530, and got a seat with no waiting, but by the time we left it... More

My wife and I at here a few days ago. Here is what we experienced. The waitress was friendly and prompt. I was impressed with the manager or owner talking to customers wanting them to feel at home. This place is friendly and welcoming. It looks to me like they are doing it right. Now let me get to the... More

Macon - Thank you for giving us a try. I'm sorry that our flounder didn't meet your expectations. Adding spices can be very tricky and then you have folks complaining that it has to much. You can always ask to have our chefs add more spice if you like too. We don't get many complaints on our flounder and we... More

For the quality, quantity, price, service and atmosphere, you can't beat it! Have eaten here countless times and never been disappointed. They blow Surf Riders right out of the water. Save your money, go to Pirates Cove.
