“Terrible experience”
Reviewed May 20, 2012 via mobile

Horrible management. I couldn't tell you how the food was because I was one of several people in my party that never got served. This restaurant is incapable of serving groups of people. Wait staff was very courteous. Management never came over to speak with us; even afte several complaints.

“An entire night required”
Reviewed May 19, 2012

Service was really poor and management was not receptive to feedback or accomodating. Waiters were very friendly, but kitchen appeared to be very disorganized. Food was just Ok.

“What a rip off!”
Reviewed August 12, 2011

Went yesterday for their filet and lobster special. $22 bought you a raw 5oz filet and a dry, rubbery lobster tail, that was the smallest I've ever seen. Came with a scoop of potatoes and FOUR asparagus tips. The crab and corn chowder looked like it had been made by a 5 year old with veggie scraps and stocked milk. The 1/2 pound of shrimp was EIGHT medium sized shrimp. Total bill: $65. Changes over ever returning: ZERO! PS: the bathroom was filthy and reeked of vomit. Should have gone across the street to ruddertowne, at least they have live music and a bayfront deck! The cove's outdoor seating? TWO tables, the rest is inside, and your view of the bay is out 2 insutrial garage doors! Not kidding! GROSS!

“Great place at Ruddertowne, along the water”
Reviewed July 26, 2011

Had a good meal. Probably should have more seafood on the menu. Right along the bay at Ruddertowne.

“A nice place to eat outside”
Reviewed July 24, 2011

This is a really nice place to eat or have a drink. They have a great outdoor eating area and porch. Inside is not so great but not that bad either. They have a nice appetizer menu. I had the mozzerella sticks which are not something to normally brag about but they were really good! I also had an orange crush made with fresh orange juice. I think the main thing here is their nice outdoor porch area. I wonder if their lighthouse really works? :)
