Good views, ambience just right, food is wonderful. Best bet for a terrific meal in the Cove. Fresh lingcod was just about perfect.

Had a great meal from appetizer, wine, beer, to our main entree. Friendly & attentive staff. Couple beers on tap. Nice choice in the menu plus specials. Wonderful choice for such a small area! Location is a bonus!!

Very good service, excellent ocean views(its right on the waters edge) and well prepared food. Cozy atmosphere and often times they have live music. A very pleasant experience.
