Cheeseburger in Paradise sang Jimmy Buffett, and many burger joints claimed he wrote it while eating in their establishment. Pirates Cove is no exception.
There still is controversy over the exact location. Edward “Blackbeard” Teach quotes Buffett, “He answered that nobody but himself and the Devil knew where it was, and the longest liver should take all.”
The restaurant, and I use that term loosely, received 4.4 stars by Google. This Pirate-themed, dog-friendly haunt is a local favorite for boaters who enjoy simple American eats & live music. – Google If you make the trip, be sure to have a few bushwacker drinks topped with 151, a strong alcohol. I had one sans 151 topper.
I enjoyed the art work on the buildings.
The badge says it all. The locals have a saying, “I’m going to Pirate Cove to hang out with the riff raff. The definition of riff raff is disreputable people. Well, if we’re there that can’t be so. (t.i.c. – tongue in cheek)
My niece, Crissa and my nephews visited the Cove, the boys to swim, and the adults to imbibe. I enjoyed the dogs on the beach, although it’s nothing like the 3 mile stretch of Huntington Beach Dog Beach, California. I wished even more that Nick could have come. He would have enjoyed running free and socializing with the other dogs.
