“Best fish fry around!”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

I have been told about Pirates Cove fish fry for a long time and finally tried it. It is by far the BEST fish fry around. Don't let the old exterior put you off. It is clean and the staff is very friendly. You can eat at the bar or at dinning tables. The atmosphere is definately Wisconsin bar/restaurant casual. They have a full bar menu, appetizers, burgers, pizza, ect. However, the fish fry is outstanding! Your choice is broiled or fried and both are wonderful. The batter on the fried is perfect. Light and not at all greasy. The broiled is flakey and not at all dry. Now about the potato pancakes, the absolute best I have had in years. Fish fry is on Fridays and they start serving it at noon. This is now my all time favorite place for fish fry and I can't wait to go again and again. We are going to go for lunch a few times to try out the rest of the menu.

“Hidden gem!”
Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

I have driven by this restaurant for 15 years and after easy some reviews, I checked it out with my family on a Taco Thursday night. The softshell tacos were fresh and delicious for $3.50. The kids enjoyed their meals as well. Everyone was super friendly. No wait staff during the week so as long as you don't mind doing somethings for yourself it is fine.

“New fan of the Crosby Burger...”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

I have stopped at Pirates Cove a handful of times since moving here a few years ago and ate here for the first time in January and had the Crosby Burger and chips. 1/2 lb burger loaded to the hilt for $6.50!!! Was craving it again and stopped again this week and it was just as good again. A couple of the bar bragged about their Italian beef but I had Crosby on my mind....I added fries instead of chips this time and for $2 more they weren't that good...greasy and soggy. Next time I'll stay with the chips. Service is average, maybe better if you are a regular but fun hole in the wall atmosphere....

“FOOD!”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

Pirates Cove has one of the best fish fry's in the state plus their Italian beef and cheese sandwich
is excellent! One item that's a knock out is their sausage and garlic pizza you would swear it's homemade!!
