Would rate their Halibut & Fries as a 7 ! However, their Roadside Sign advertised "Halibut & Fries @ $6.99" Upon ordering, was told this was for "students ONLY" WELL PUT THAT ON YOUR SIGN !!! Ended up costing about $15.00 !!!

The family & I just had dinner at The Cove for the first time and were very pleased. To start the hubby and I shared a Greek Salad which was delicious with lots of feta cheese and olives and it was a generous size. My husband had the Haddock and Chips while I had the Halibut & Chips. My fish... More

Haven't been to The Cove in a few years, was in the mood for fish and chips, we ended up getting the liver and onions, a beef melt and seafood chowder, (hey I did get something fishy!) Wasn't expecting much, as we went mid afternoon, the place was quiet, and it is a little tired looking inside. Small menu to... More

Decor is old, worn and un-upholstered wood booth seating, (there are also tables) but the staff, food and prices made... More

The Cove was a place that I would visit every time I had occasion to go to Newmarket. Unfortunately, the last time I was there, I was so dissapointed. It seems that it may have changed management, not sure. My brother in law and I visited for lunch. We always tried to get there before lunch as the place gets... More

I had out-of-town people for Christmas who were flying out on the 28th of December. They wanted to go for lunch there, googled it to find out hours. It said 11:00 am -to 11:00 pm. When we arrived there, the "Open" sign was on, (12 noon), but the doors were locked & no one was inside. Even the sign on... More

Went here for the Fish and Chips and was not disappointed. Food was good but fries were a little soft for the traditional fish and chips.
