Sitting on the deck over the cove is a treat - and the seafood is excellent. Worth the trip to South Bristol.

I love to find places that are not right in the heart of the touristy area and this is it. To get the Wonderful view make sure you make reservations! I had the haddock special and it was wonderful! So fresh and delicious! Friendly staff!

Coveside's location alone is a reason to dine there. By land or by sea, folks come from all around for the dockside views. Good for bringing Fido along, too.

Foodwise, it seems we have had better at the Coveside in the past. The fried Haddock and fried clams provide a reliable menu item. Other dishes seem to be a bit on the odd side - fresh fish with a "mystery" sauce, for example, and no dressing salad.

The young service staff is enthusiastic and energetic - note: if seated on the deck, do not drop your credit card or the deck spacing will swallow it (an alert server spotted one client's card about to go into the deep and saved it).

Stick with the old reliables and enjoy the view.

The Coveside was located near the cottage we rented and was recommended by the owners of the cottage. We went for a family meal and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had spent the day paddle boarding and kayaking so arrived to the restaurant hungry. For appetizer, we had crab cakes and buffalo wings. For our main course, I had the haddock from the special's menu. It was very tasty. Others at the table had the fish tacos and shared them. They were large tacos and had a large chunk of fish in each. We were not disappointed.

The food was average. Service was great and prices were reasonable. The view from the outside deck is amazing!! There's not much else around the area, but it was worth the drive for the photos!!!
