We stopped here for lunch. There were 8 of us. Service was excellent. Setting was oasis like. We all ordered different things; western burger, pulled smoke chicken on a bun, smoked chicken sandwich, tossed salad with chicken. The fries were really crisp, and the beer really cold. Everyone commented on how good their food was. Only one wasn't thrilled about... More

If you are on Lake Havasu and go down the river to Needles, you must stop at Pirates Cove Beach Bar for a yummy meal and some excellent service. In the midst of 116 degree heat it was nice to find a place to cool down a little with a refreshing margarita, the best french fries ever and over all... More

That's what I was thinking went I walked into this place. Plus, it's January, their off season. At first bite my mood changed. This was the tastiest smoked chicken salad sandwich... More

We have been coming to this area of the Colorado river for 40 years and when the Pirate opened, it was a refreshing addition to the area. Its always a must stop when we are floating down the river from Needles in the summer. The drinks are cold and the staff is hot. I have heard that the bar food... More
