We stayed in a cabin, better than a villa. More room, screened in porch with rocking chairs. Large kitchen eating area big table with six chairs. TVs in all bedrooms and sitting area. Totally relaxing. All staff very friendly and helpful. Great southern cooked food. Our only challenge were the gnats that were heavily buzzing ones face. Not fun when... More

Very good casual dining with low-key atmosphere. We enjoy the pizza, sandwiches, and seafood baskets.

I went two weeks ago and was in shock. Since the remodel, they have changed, including prices. It would not have been so bad, if I wasn't served on paper plates and cups!!! One pizza and two salads and the price was 42.00!! Will not return.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave your review. As you posted we have changed our service delivery over the last several months. We have included a lunch service to our business. Due to that change, we have gone to more of a disposable method of plating our meals ,as well as, an order counter. This procedure... More

PIZZAS are really good, shrimp basket needs work. Design your own burrito is a good idea and mine was delicious

Get there early, they close down about 9 on Friday. Everything was delicious. Nachos bacon cheese bread wonderful. Pizzas kitchen sink pretty good. Chicken Bacon ranch was great. Beer wasn't very cold.

Loved the food at The Cove. All four of us (2 kids and 2 adults) were very happy. We had a pizza loaded with meat, along with chicken wings (for my non-pizza child). They serve beer (always good with pizza). There are only about 10 tables inside, with around another 10 located in a screened patio, so the place fills... More

Best pizza in Crisp County! Worth the drive and wait. Always satisfied! You can't go wrong with the Loaded Nachos, beer and pizza, Thai wings, ect. The owners are great and wait staff are very friendly. This is NOT a chain, so you can expect great food and service!

I am not reviewing as a traveler but as someone who lives in the area and was very glad to see a place like the Cove open. They advertise their pizza as The Best Pizza at the Lake. Well, in reality, it's the only pizza at the lake, but it may be some of the best pizza in the world.... More

We have eaten here several times and the food has always been great. We love the outdoor seating when the weather is nice and they have great pizza. I have only tried two of the pizzas, one was the kitchen sink the other was bacon, chicken, ranch and they are both great. I have also had the spinach artichoke dip... More

12 of us golfers stayed at the cabins At Lake Blackshear, and The Cove is just outside the main entrance. We ordered pizza one night which i went and picked up. I ordered 6 pizzas, with a variety and they were excellent, but surprisingly a little bit on the high side, price wise....but it is worth the money. Get the... More

This family restaurant opened up in May 2010 and has the best subs and pizzas that I have ever had in my life. The local couple that own and operate it are very friendly and accommodating! Try it!!! It's the best place to eat in Cordele or at Lake Blackshear!!!
