Many things have changed since our restaurant served it’s first meal but some things remain – creativity, quality, flavour and value. Since 1988, owner Mary Cowan’s signature take on home cooked classics have laid the foundation for today’s favs from the kitchen. Chef Joanne Edwards took the lead in the Cove kitchen throughout the 2010s. Her full flavoured, hearty dishes are inspired from her love of international cuisine with a comfort twist. Twin Chefs Sarah and Emily Brown are running the kitchen now producing everything delicious! We look forward to their continued leadership, creativity, hard work and of course, laughing!

The restaurant has a comfortable vintage feel with a welcoming ambiance and offers a style of food for many tastes.

In the warm months, dine on our patio surrounded by lush gardens, shady trees and enjoy fine outdoor entertainment on select days.

We offer signature evenings including Seasonal Wine Dinners, Sunday Wings ‘n Tunes + Open Mic Matinees/Wednesday Rack ‘n Tunes + Open Mic Nights, legendary Saturday Night Roast Beef Buffet Style Dinner and various holiday menus. Call us anytime 1.888.268.3466 and discuss your special event with Maureen or Seamus. We look forward to hosting you!
