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 juice. Our group of 3 was a very small percentage of the Cove business at that time. A Manhattan at Ruth Christ's is cheaper and the Yellow Fin in Williamsville has better quality food.
We ordered some onion rings, a salad, a rice and chicken entrée and a crab cake special. What we ended up with was the chicken rice enter that nobody wanted to eat (maybe it looks better on the homeless food line?), 2 actually decent crab cakes, a large salad, 4 breaded chicken filets, and enough french fries to feed an army.
Cutting to the chase, the crab cakes were the keeper. Nobody was excited with the rice/chicken "homeless buffet", and for the price of the Manhattan (during "happy hour"), I would rather spend my money at Ruth Christ's in West Ocean City.
The end: $70 bill for 2 grandparents and a child on an off night but we brought home some salad and 2 chicken fillets. A McDonald's carryout would have been a better value.
In addition, 2 of our neighbors arrived as we were leaving. They were intending to sit at the bar for "happy hour". Whatever they learned after talking to us as well as the staff resulting in their leaving when they did.
We have no plans of returning at this time.
