My family and I have been going to Smuggler's Cove for about five years and have never had a bad meal or bad experience. Owner Marty and all the staff are consistently friendly and hard working. The views are great if you can get near the front. The prime rib is outstanding and reasonable in price.

Great place, excelent prices and selection. Weather permitting sitting on the deck is the place to be. Coming by boat turns it into a dinner cruise. Overall good food & better value! It is also nice to eat where they ALL work hard to get you in and out and keep your beverage full while you are there.

Smugglers Cove on Hess Lake has an amazing menu (most items under $10.00) views, outside deck, and even more amazing staff.

The key to having a successful resturant is quality, consistancy of the food, service and cleanliness of the resturant, which they mark very high on.

My favorite dish (and son's) is the seafood "all you can" specials on the weekends for well around $10.00 a meal. The wife likes the Jack Daniels ribs and so does a friend of ours.

Word to the wise, come early and plan on waiting in line. They do not accept reservations and you will find a line, but the line moves quickly.

This is a top notch establishemnt and will only reccomend this resturant.

Awesome food, especially the steaks and seafood. Many dinners are still under $10.00, including prime rib and more. The best prices anywhere. Plan on waiting for a table on the weekends, but they move quickly. They have docks to pull upto in your boat, personal watercraft or pontoon. Try sitting on the outdoor deck.
