My husband and I ate here on Sunday and really liked it. We were able to walk right in and get a table outside. It was a gorgeous night, service was good and food was great. We would definitely eat here again.

I was met with a bad attitude, and high pressure to order more than I was hungry for. Cheap 1970'2 decor, plastic table covers, dunes too high to see the ocean, no air conditioning and sweltering. Another restaurant full of flies.

I love to cook, and I love breakfast. Cape May has lots of great breakfast spots. The Cove is not one of them. This assumes that you go there to eat. I was there with out of town friends, and we loved the ocean view. We even did a little whale-watching of the human variety, and got a few chuckles out of that. (I can't believe people would actually wear stuff like that if they looked like that) but, I digress. Let's stick to The Cove. We were seated quickly by our host, and we took a spot overlooking the beach. We were less than impressed by broken screens, and open windows. My friend commented that "it must be to let the flies out." We ordered. I got the most basic thing I could imagine: home fires, two eggs over medium, sausage, wheat toast, coffee. $8,95. They must have been some expensive hens! Anyhow, the home fries were boiled potatoes, then I guess grilled, and served. Without a doubt the most bland home fries I have ever had. No seasoning at all. I ate half of them. Eggs are eggs-these were small, but OK. The sausage was three small links of some generic store-bought breakfast sausage. Forgettaboutit!
Toast is toast. The coffee was served in those also generic brown cups that every place had twenty years ago. All in all, I expect a lot more when I go out to eat. I could have done this at home in 5 minutes. My other friend got a little more for his buck. His silverware had egg on it. It was quickly replaced. The room itself is in need or repair. Our server was friendly enough in a non-caring way. The view is outstanding, and I could not help but think what an outstanding location this is, and what potential this place has. Maybe someday, but certainly not the day I was there.

We had breakfast and the eggs, toast, potatoes were dry. The service was very slow. We only say our waitress twice.
