The Cove is always high on the list of places we love to have dinner when staying at a local RV park. The food is always exceptionally good. I highly recommend the cream of mushroom soup. So yummy.

Service was spotty at times but for the most part great! Little higher priced than other locations on the peninsula

We had to wait 45 minutes for one sandwich! The kitchen did not appear to know how to prepare multiple meals. Plus, our waitress, who was a nice young lady, was very slow in taking our order. (We even had to get our own menu!)

Food is always good but this is the first time we've had BBQ. The chicken was over cooked and dry, the ribs were okay but had no meat on them and the brisket was just okay too. The beans were good and the wife liked the cranberry BBQ sauce. We'll go back but probably not for the BBQ.

Quiet night.
Excellent service.
Halibut fish&chips, light but crunchy batter, great fries.
Thai chili coleslaw a pleasant surprise.
Prawn scampi (a little) heavy on the butter, but also excellent.
Fair wine list.

I love the cove great for our area. Prices are reasonable and food is always top notch. Carmen is Gem and handled the busy crowd like a pro. My only complaint is that it is always so noisy. Hard to have a conversation. Needs some softer surfaces like sail cloth draped in the ceiling or curtains or something. Definitely not a deal breaker by all means GO!

Once again the food and service at The Cove was fantastic. It was very busy Friday evening so was much louder than usual but everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves so it was a happy noise.

The food is always good. The proportions are generous, well-seasoned, and well-presented. The regular menu has choices for everyone and I like the daily specials. The servers are personable and efficient. We love it when the manager, Sondra, comes over to talk with us.

We were seated and it took ten minutes to get menus. We had to ask for specials menus and drinks menus. It was very, very noisy. It took one hour for three entrees to arrive and the fourth came 10 minutes after that. One entree, the late one, was very poorly prepared. All in all it was very disappointing.

I know it is off-season in Long Beach Washington, however a trimmed menu to this time, and perhaps expanding to include out-door grill items May- Sept.

Our server was great! The music was a little loud when we got there but when we asked for it to be turned down it was done immediately. Food orders were delivered correctly and in a timely manner and it was very good. Nice selection of local wine. We will definitely go back

The food was excellent, although they were out of several selections by 7:30. Our reservations were for 7:15, however we were not seated until 7:45. Before we left, the owner (?) came to our table and apologized for the long wait, and the fact that we were the last people to be served in the restaurant. We appreciated the gentleman who was singing background music, however it was a bit too loud for the small space we were in.

I am a Peninsula resident. For the last couple of years I've heard nothing but good things about the cove. As a matter fact one colleague brings leftovers to lunch about once a week… And every week I vow I am going to go and try it.
Last week I was organizing a friends get together so I chose the cove. Using the OpenTable app was easy and have the added bonus of reminder emails! When we got there I was impressed from the moment I stepped in the door. The service was friendlyand efficient, my food sensitivity issues were handled fairly well, and the view out to the golf course was quite lovely. The decor was calm and relaxing.
And the whole point was to eat lunch. That was very successful. 😄The food was delicious! So, yes, I highly recommend the Cove in Long Beach Washington.

The restaurant was closed. Nobody told us. We walked around the premises for about 15 minutes thinking there must be a mistake. The Cove and Open Table need to communicate with one another so customers don't go to the restaurant expecting to have dinner.
There was no notice on the door and we got a confirmation e-mail on Friday reminding us of our appointment. We were there; what happened?

Made a reservation for 6pm via Open Table but received a call from the restaurant shortly after saying the earliest we could get in was 7:30pm. Open Table needs to work on its scheduling process.

This place has a small kitchen, so if they are busy, you can expect to wait a good while for your food. We waited at least an hour for ours and they provide no bread/chips during the wait. But the food may be the best on the Long Beach Peninsula.

Love Thursday night fish tacos! Great appetizer menu--easy to make dinner from it. Steamer clams excellent. Prawns superb. Always great service. Love vegetarian options, yet plenty for meat-lovers. Nice golf course view. Always a treat to eat at The Cove!

We had not been able to dine for the evening at the cove. Staff was very pleasant and very proud of the restaurant, I had the salmon which was presented nicely but was a little overcooked. My wife's dinner was very good and she enjoyed the evening.

In planning for the honeymoon that my wife and I took last week, I went to opentable to find a nice restaurant in Long Beach, WA. I found The Cove and made a reservation and put a passing note that we were looking for a memorable time. What we got was a big greeting as soon as we got in the door from the maître d' and server (who are sisters). The conversation with both of them made us feel so at home. Flavorful and plentiful are best description for what we ordered, we both couldn't finish our meals! We also met the head chef who was clearly passionate for cooking as he experiments with new dishes on the menu. We felt very satisfied and happy with our decision to go to The Cove. You'll doing your heart and tastebuds a favor!

The Cove has a good selection of menu choices, the food is prepared very well with good presentation, and the servers are personable. The view out on to the golf course is also pleasant. The restaurant honors local artists by displaying their work, and handling the sales of pieces to interested patrons.

Saw the Cove on open Table and was able to get a reservation at lunch. We were presently surprised with a full menu and some of the friendliness staff you can find. We had the Special lunch, which was chilli. It was very good with just the right amount heat. The meat was not hamburger a very tender beef pieces, We will be back for dinner at a latter date. Recommend folks visit for lunch.

A diner style counter and a cozy dining room replete with golf course views and a fireplace offer an excellent backdrop for cheery service and the fresh, tasty food! Anything on the lunch menu is always good, diverse enough if you can tear yourself away from the great burger. The homemade soups are always tasty. Dinner is only served a few days a week, so make sure you check to see if they are open. They often have a prime rib special that is a very good value! The pasta specials are also excellent. Based on the level of the food, I'm pretty sure they have a chef (not your average fry cook) in the kitchen! Sometimes they have live music on the weekends at dinner! Beer and wine only, but they seem to know how to pick the wines and beers!
