Bummer, Mila makes a great salad, burger and steak. It is definitely worth a trip or stop. However, she will "pad" the bill. So go there--but keep count of your expenses and don't give in to her "explanations"

We visited on a quiet evening, only a couple other people were there. The owner was friendly and fun to chat with. The burgers were just amazing. I wish she'd had dark beer, but the Cab I had was good.

I came here for dinner with a group of 20 friends and family. The food was your standard burgers, steaks but was really good! It's a little restaurant in a very small town called Cove in Eastern Oregon, so if you're in the area I'd recommend it! Get the cheeseburger, it's so big and really good!

Just be patient because it is hand crafted by an excellent cook. You will be amazed. Also found that if you want to customize, be ready to make it clear on what you want. For example,I was avoiding carbs and asked to delete a few items in their salad. It was complicated, somewhat not what I wanted but still amazing.... More

when you walk in the door you immediately see everything so clean. The menu is a very good one. The food is fresh...generous servings...hamburgers huge...large salad ...delicious fish and chips. The tavern interior isdecorated in rustic burled wood and wildlife of local hunter contributors. I go there about 3 or 4 times a month and thoroughly enjoy my experience

Fabulous, handmade burgers! NOT supplied by FSA/Sysco makes me so happy too. Legitimate food for reasonable prices. Burgers are just over ten bucks, but are definitely large enough to be shared by two people. Order one, share it........you'll see. Salads are amazing. Seriously, Cove is way out there, and for the place to have REAL food..... You never see that... More

I love Cove, so every now and again we'll go eat at the Cove Tavern and Steakhouse. One of the first places I ate in when I first moved over here from the UK. The food has always and still is awesome, I like the salads too. Rustic and charming...... as long as you don't mind a full size cougar... More
