Love this place. Looks a little dated from the outside but inside is large and clean. Plenty of tables or seats at the bar most afternoons. Food is excellent and service is always good. Try the beef and cheese or a burger.

We read prior reviews and decided to try Pirates Cove for the fish fry. The service was slow. The good was ok. The cod was a little dry. The food wasn't too hot when served. The staff was friendly, which made the visit a little better.

As good as any in the county for a reasonable cash only accepted price. Coconut shrimp & broiled cod was fresh & tasty with generous portions. Don't expect to get vegetables unless potatoes work for you, they are not a menu option.

We just wanted a little something to tide us over. We tried 3 appetizers and couldn't finish the delicious basket of potato wedges. Nice sports bar/restaurant.

We'd not been here for Friday Fish Fry before, but after tonight's visit, we'll be back. The service was friendly and attentive. The food was flavorful and serving sizes were plenty! The place was busy and now I see why! Yum.

It might not look like much but they are less expensive on their drinks and also have an awesome Friday fish fry.Their burgers are not bad either. Tell them well done fries and that is good also ask for something off menu and they try. Worth the stop and there is also parking in the back if needed.

We enjoyed a few drinks with friends and the karaoke. Good crowd of people! Played darts and pool tables available too. Drinks were reasonably priced. Had a good time catching up with friends.

Like many of the reviews say this place is dark, dirty and old looking but don't let that stop you. The fish fry was great and the staff was even better.

Great little bar/restaurant! I love this place for fish! Not only is the fish good (both fried and baked) but my favorite part are the homemade sides/relishes the chef makes! The salads are outstanding! The place is clean, the staff is welcoming. The seating is just a few steps from the bar area, so if you don't like eating "in... More
