About George’s at the Cove

Prepare to take in the epic ocean views when dining at George’s at the Cove. This is a casual dining beachfront restaurant that is perfect for couples groups and families. While the menu may not be the most innovative, it’s more about the ambiance and that’s what drives locals to this restaurant. One thing to note: George’s at the Cove does not have high chairs for small children. We recommend taking kids about four years and older to this restaurant for safety reasons. The restaurant claims they welcome families, but numerous reviews note that there are not any high chairs for kids and as of publishing there’s no intention on changing this. This is surprising considering the establishment’s fairly casual demeanor and menu, but it’s something worth noting for parents.

What to Order

The menu at George’s at the Cove is fairly simple. Caesar salads topped with grilled shrimp or chicken, an array of sandwiches, pastas and tacos. Overall the food has a slight Mexican or Baja twang with a lot of seafood and spicy seasonings thrown into the mix. There’s a skirt steak salad served with fennel and blue cheese vinegarette and five spiced chicken salad with Asian influences from honey soy vinegarette and crispy won tons.
In the sandwich department there’s the traditional Cuban with roasted pork, ham and gruyere cheese. The eggplant panini is perfect for vegetarians and packs pesto, artichokes, basil and fontina cheese alongside tender eggplant. The pastas are simple at George’s at the Cove. Penne with lamb sugo is infused with mint ricotta and black olives. The soba noodle salad has wasabi-soy dressing and chunks of seared ahi cooked to rare perfection. Since you’re sitting at the beach, there’s also a classic clam pasta dish, loaded with white wine and oil with garlic. The food is light, but the flavors are rich.
The tacos are the winners are George’s at the Cove. Guests love the Mexican-style shrimp cocktail tacos, which are prepared like traditional Mexican ceviche. Onion, lime and avocado add refreshing notes and textures to the taco filling. The fish tacos are topped with mango salsa, jalapeno-lime creme fraiche and guacamole. The ancho chile shrimp tacos are prepared the same way, but pack a serious punch of spice with the ancho chile seasoning.

How Much?

Prices are about $10-$20 at George’s at the Cove. It does take reservations, but it isn’t really that type of restaurant due to the beach locale. Unless you’re with a large party, you most likely do not need reservations dining here. There’s a large terrace where you get a fantastic view of the beach, making it one of the last spot’s in town with such a prime look at the ocean. George’s at the Cove is ideal for couples or friends catching up during the later hours, when they offer drink specials and an extensive small menu that runs late.
