I LOVE The Cove! Cool atmosphere, excellent food, great local beer selection, nice outdoor seating, diverse music sets...all my favorite things in one place! I’ve tried many different menu options from the tacos to a variety of burgers and salads and ALL of them have been yummy, but the Latin Lover lamb burger is by far the best. It’s now my staple whenever I go. The quality of it varies a bit visit to visit, I think some kitchen staff may “smash” the patty, which to me is sacrilege, but even the few times it’s been over cooked, it was still tasty. Highly recommend this place, one of my very favorites in SA!read more

There's so much to love about the Cove, especially if you have a passion for eating local, healthy food, and if you have young children. The outdoor play area keeps the kids busy while you wait for your food. Speaking of waiting, the only downside to The Cove is that there's often a long line to order and then a bit of a wait to get your food brought to your table. But the quality of food, the fact that you can see where the food is sourced from, and the fun atmosphere make it worth the wait. While you're there, step outside your comfort zone and share one of the outdoor picnic tables with another family. Strike up a conversation. You'll be glad you did!read more

Love The Cove! Go there on a nice day or evening and sit outside in their well shaded dining area. They have a very large bar with a huge selection of beer on tap. I can't remember the name of the burger I had but it was like a bean burger (refried beans cheese and chips) with the perfect amount of pepper heat. They allow you to bring your dog too!read more

This joint is awesome. Ive been coming here a few years. I live in houston and travel to SA every month on business. I always pay them a visit. The food is fresh, consistent, friendly atmosphere. AND THEY SERVE VEGAN grub!!! If you haven't tried them, you MUST! Thanks for feeding me healthy vegan food. 😀❤read more

I typically try to keep my consumption of alcohol and my exposure to children separate so getting used to these kinds of places takes some work on my end. Unpopular opinion, I know. I've never been to The Cove but have always heard about it from co-workers and friends. When the opportunity to visit for a co-worker's going away party presented itself I willingly jumped at the occasion. When we arrived, we immediately went to the bar outside, in the back. Hey, it was happy hour so why not partake? My friend ordered a whiskey and coke and the bartender quickly informed us that The Cove doesn't serve hard liquor. Just wine and beer. I guess I understand that considering the parent to child ratio, you don't want moms and dads getting too turnt up. Not only could we not get liquor, we couldn't get "regular" beer - just Texas beer at that particular bar. We made our way inside. I liked the inside space and saw that a band was setting up. Unfortunately, we didn't stay long enough to order food. I get the quirky appeal of the Cove considering it's a car wash, laundromat, and restaurant. Parking for us was a hassle (we parked in front of the laundromat) and the space was tiny. Maybe, I'll give it another try just for the food but we'll see!read more

Love this place. A great place to bring the family and have a few beers also. They have live music from local artists and they serve some of the best sweet potato fries ever!!! Have a great selection of ciders and other beers. The outdoor setting is great too. They have a play area for kids to enjoy themselves.read more

This is one of my favorite spots in San Antonio. If I have people coming in from our of town, this is where I show them how cool San Antonio can be. My favorite thing to order is the fish tacos. Very spicy but so good! Environment is relaxed. Multiple areas so you can decide what kind of ambiance you want. Live music inside, doggies and children playing outside. Love this place!read more

It's a great place to eat outdoors. It's a perfect place for your kids they have a playground in the center where you can watch them. The hamburgers are good. They had lots of vegetarian / healthy choices. They have a large variety of drinks. They do not have regular Dr. Pepper, Coke, Sprite. They have their own brand of soft drinks. They're supposed to be healthier. They also have sweet potato French fries. It's very dog and kid friendly. However, the kids are far enough away that you can still enjoy a nice quiet meal.read more

This is one of my favorite places. It's very close to my home & work. I rarely eat chain or fast foods & I know I can get delicious, healthy choices sourced locally here. I can't give a full review because I'm totally in love with their fish tacos! Excellent family atmosphere; local talent; community support & yummy S.O.L. food! You will love it here!read more

I have always like The Cove. The food is consistently good regardless of what I order. They also have a great beer selection with a bunch of craft brews from Texas and nationally. It is a great place for a large group, birthday parties, and family gatherings. They have a playground for kids to play so the adults can hang out uninterrupted. The only negative I can point out us parking. Sometimes it can be tough to find a spot. Also you have to wait in line to order at the counter. All their sofas are natural and the tea is fresh.read more

Great space and very chill environment. Food comes from local vendors and its very community oriented. Has a huge outdoor playground for the kids and vegan options. Also seems to have love music most nights and the food is great for a reasonable price.

Amazing food , especially the bison burger and sweet potato fries. We held a social here with a large group on a Saturday night , we were able to hold three big tables out side by the playground for 30 minutes until everybody showed up . Worked out perfectly. The playground is amazing for kids 2-12 to play on while you socialize . There is an outside bar and inside bar. So much space. Will definitely be going back .read more

Great place for lunch. Nice patio area. Pet friendly with shady spots. Gluten free options, bonus! Only downside, if your looking to dip your whiskers at lunch, the draft bar only opens at 5. You'll have to deal with whatever they have in bottles.

Really liked the fast service. The naked burger was delicious and the hummus and chips were very tasty although a little heavy on the garlic so if your not planning on kissing anyone it is a definite must. The environment was very laid back and lots of outdoor seating for families with little kids to play in the jungle gyms, even have outdoor misters. Inside was nice and cool with a live band and dance floor long style bench tables. Very different concept place that has an attached car wash and laundromat. I guess you can wash the car and drop off your laundry while you get a bite to eat with the kids and even the dog! Could use a little TLC indoors and outside for sure but a good little place to grab some good wholesome food, Gluten Free options, vegan and vegetarian patties and even bison, chicken farm to table style. The food is definitely worth the trip!read more

Only ordered delivery so I can’t speak to the atmosphere or service. The order took a long time to be ready before delivery. That would have been fine if the food had merited the wait - I was so excited to try the interesting vegan burgers, but both the vegan and meat burgers we ordered were soggy, sloppy, and uninteresting. The sweet potato fries were equally soggy. This was actually probably the worst vegan burger I’ve had, and I have tried many. The only reason I would visit the actual location would be to enjoy their dog friendly patio.read more

The Cove is one of my all time favorite restaurants. I’m vegetarian and LOVE the Vegan Bacon Cheeseburger. Everything else is top notch! The food can’t be beaten and the place is really cool itself. There’s great beer on tap and live music. It gets 4 stars because they really can’t accommodate the demand. Friday/Saturday evening is a nightmare. You will wait an hour. We regularly pick up to go and because the to go line isn’t clearly marked other customers will go out of their way to tell you off about getting in the front of the line. Unfortunately they need a significantly larger restaurant.read more

At first glance, you may question your decision to go to The Cove. Fear not; your decision to eat here is well justified. This place has great burgers. You can't go wrong with any of their burger selections. The fries are also appropriately tasty, reminiscent of boardwalk fries. Awesome spot!

Food was mediocre at best which makes the prices too high for what you get. Burgers were overcooked and dry. Fries seemed like they had been cooked in old oil but it was lunch time. Seating is old and more like it belongs in a park which I guess you could call rustic. Fine for an outdoor bar I guess. We also got to enjoy the nice smell of the sewage trap being pumped during lunch hours /s/. Maybe this place is better in the evening with live music and that justifies the higher prices, but the food does not.read more

This was a fun place to eat! There is a playground for the kids. Judging from the schedule, there is frequent live music. There is a sign that indicates pets are welcome in the outdoor area. Kind of a unique place. I tried the bison burger, and it was delicious. The fries were excellent. My wife had the "real burger" and enjoyed it as well. Oddly, the soft drinks are from a new brand I didn't recognize...not the usual big names.read more

The cove is a great family dinner spot. My husband and I both ordered burgers which were fantastic! Very tasty and not filled with a bunch of junk. My daughter enjoyed being able to play and meet new friends at the playground. Love the outdoor space and the fenced in play area. Mom and dad can sit at the table and watch the kids play and not have to constantly tell kiddos to “sit down” and “behave”read more

A great place to take the family where the kids can play and you can enjoy the company of your wife/husband and friends. The food was okay, though I’ve only been once and tried the fish tacos, shrimp taco and kale salad. The salad was the better part. The beer was amazing with a huge selection, which I personally love. I will be going back to try more food and beer for sure!read more
