If you want delicious crab cakes, save your money and head to the VBeach ocean front. The food at Pirates Cove is unremarkable and it cost way too much for what you get. The service was great and the portions were large but I was expecting better quality, especially with all the "Best of" signs out front. I don't see another trip in our future.

Just returned from dinner. There were 4 couples - and we all came away happy. The special of the night was fried flounder for $13. It included 2 sides. I will go back. Staff was nice, it was clean, the restrooms were very clean and the food was very good. I read the negative responses and wonder if we all in the same restaurant.

If you ever leave Pirates Cove hungry you need help. The portions are beyond generous and reasonably priced (we always leave with a huge box of leftovers). Yes, their specialty is fried seafood but who can resist well prepared fresh fried seafood? Pirates Cove is in my top ten, you won't be disappointed.

This restaurant is listed as one of the best in Chesapeake. I have no idea how that could be, but I did notice Chick-fil-A was ahead of them by four spots. Save your money and go there! This place might be decent if you were paying fast food prices, but you’re not. Very over priced for the mediocre food they serve…even Red Lobster gives you bread and a salad. There are no extras here. We have eaten at a lot of wonderful restaurants with wonderful chefs that charge less than this place does for canned and frozen tasting food. We will definitely not return and will tell everyone we can to stay away.

Me an my 4 friends visited Pirates cove last night for dinner. Service was prompt and very attentive. Food was super fresh and cooked perfectly.We shared 2 apps.. and we had 4 main courses. everything was amazing. From the hot crab dip and mozz fritte, to the flounder shrimp crab cakes and scallops, nothing was not perfect. If you want the best seafood to be found with great service with friendly staff, you must make this a stop
