We were in Rhode Island for a quick, overnight getaway, staying at a hotel within walking distance from The Cove. We've been there several times, but never in the dead of winter. Our server, Missy, sat us right in front of the fireplace! It was so cozy and we enjoyed a great dinner. Their baked scallops over bacon and leek... More

This restaurant was recommended by my sister-in-law. It did not disappoint. I had the chicken Caesar wrap with sweet potato fries (which were amazing). My husband had the turkey club. It was so large he took half home. Will definitely be back!

The burgers were awesome with the " Cove Fries. Staff was very friendly and service was good, However the second the last day , a Sunday we went and I had the fried clams At $19.00 and it was very sparse, I feel they could have put more clams on the plate for the price.

We sat at the bar and Marissa waited on us. She was very nice and accommodating. We ordered the calamari which was spicy, but we enjoyed it. Marissa warned us that it would be spicy, so we were not surprised. I had grilled fish tacos and they were very good. There were three on the plate and it was served... More

Casual pub style restaurant with nice casual atmosphere, large bar with several televisions.The menu includes burgers, pasta, seafood and salads. They have a nice beer and wine selection. It can be a little busy on weekends in the summer and they do not take reservations so better to visit during the week or off season

We were staying in a small motel in Charlestown, RI and asked the proprietor for a recommendation. She did not street us wrong. This restaurant was close by and the food and service was excellent. Would definitely eat there again if in the area.

I'd suggest you not be put off by the plain-Jane exterior of The Cove. Inside is paneled with wood, with a nautical feel, it has a warm, friendly feel. Also, if the weather is great plan to take advantage of a beautiful patio that feels like you're way off the beaten path. Surrounded by flowers and jungle-like greenery, makes you... More
