My wife and I along with our 3 year old grandson dined there tonight thinking of a simple, fair priced event. We arrived during their advertised "happy hour" of 3-6 PM and were the only table occupants yet 25% of the total occupancy at the time. For drinks, we ordered a no call Manhattan, an iced tea, and an apple... More

We live in the area and had never been to the Cove. So when a duo who we know was performing there on a Friday evening we decided it was a good opportunity to give it a try. We had heard mostly positive things and knowing it is managed by SoDel we had high expectations. What a letdown. While not... More

The menu is rather basic, but the food was well prepared. We've been coming here for about 5 years and it's consistently gotten better.

I had the spicy fried spare ribs, very good! Hamburger is also very good. The only problem with this place is it is so loud in there. I had to walk outside just to take a break from the loudness. Food is good though. Just go early.

Very modern and relatively new bar and restaurant at Bayside Golf resort in Delaware. Check out their Happy Hour specials. I ordered the Club sandwich and it was excellent. Nice view on their outdoor patio of the 18th green. Friendly and excellent service.

The Cove has many specials and great happy hour pricing at the bar. We go to the Cove probably 6 times a month. I would highly recommend it.

We decided to try The Cove again since we live nearby and it would be very convenient. But, no, it was terrible. There were only 3 other tables to be served and yet we waited 1 hr. for our food to appear. We kept being told 2 minutes!! When the food came, the bottoms of the crab cakes were burned... More

They offer a wonderful brunch for a reasonable price. However, beat the rush because they fill up around 9:30 am and you will wait in long lines. It has amazing stations of food. Something for everyone.
