I have been coming to Ocean Shores for years and have always enjoyed the friendliness of the owners and staff at the Pirate's Cove. They had Amazing Bloody Mary's that came with lots of veggies and a large prawn if you desired a bite of seafood. The food was excellent for "Bar Food" and they had specials during the week and on weekends. The bar itself also had events such as Karoke and Trivia Nights.
About two years ago the place was sold. Staff changed and so did the food and customers. What used to be a fun, kitchy place to grab a brew and a bite to eat has really become a dive bar where the focus placed on serving alcohol and not food. The new bartenders are moody and dishelved. There are more then a few drunks at the bar and I no longer trust the quality of food I view coming from the kitchen which looks pretty dirty when you look in..... The bathrooms are in need of more regular cleaning.
I have been here twice since the change in ownership over a one year period and I have no desire to go back.
