Every time we travel to Leland, we eat lunch or dinner at The Cove. Their Bloody Mary and Chubby Mary are both excellent. My favorite is the Fried Whitefish - whether on a platter or on a sandwich, it is the best fried whitefish in Northern Michigan!!! We love to sit outside and over look fish town.

Stopped in for lunch while hitting the wine trails. Super good food. They have quite a few tables to the wait wasn't too bad. Nice view of the dam and river -- seating outside when weather is good.

We walked across the bridge from our hotel at the recommendation from the front desk. We were not disappointed. The entire meal was a delight and our server was simply amazing!

We've eaten here before and loved it. For a special birthday lunch we drove 50 miles to the Cove. Starving- we opened the door to be told by a guy sitting with 5 other guys that they were closed for the season. Would be nice to have this posted on the 3 sites we checked. Trip Adivisor, Cove's web page and facebook all fail to mention this. We asked for recommendation in town for a meal. He wouldn't suggest any place in town. Instead he said to drive to one 15 miles away. Very disappointing in this treatment. If you are closed then LOCK THE FRONT DOOR and post information on the sites.
