Mashed Potatoes

Oh my goodness, what a very special Thanksgiving it was. As it was the last one with my late mother-in-law, and we were so happy to sit near the roaring fireplace and to enjoy the food. There wasn't one dish better than the other everything was simply spectacular!!

Maple Blackened Salmon

This is my go- to dish on the menu. The salmon is crispy on the outside, with a perfect combination of blackened seasoning and the hint of sweet from the maple syrup. It comes with a sweet potato puree that compliments the savory flavor of the salmon.

The OC salad is just the right combination of savory and sweet. With a protein, makes an excellent complete dinner (or lunch) salad too!!

Twin Filet

This was the best apple tart. It was light , fresh, thinly sliced apples, amazing light flaky crust, warmed and topped with vanilla ice cream. It was eye appealing and presented elegantly on a beautiful white oblong dessert plate with whipped cream an 2 fresh raspberries! Details. I have had a similar tart at an authentic French bakery and truly enjoyed this more.

O.C. Salad

Over the July 4th weekend, we dined outside on the inviting nice,y appointed patio setting. This salad was amazing, colorful, refreshing, healthy and delicious. Mostly, it was unique as it contained mixed green, grapes, diced apple, dried cranberries celery and honey mustard vinaigrette dressing. I had added grilled shrimp and left out the Gorgonzola and walnuts, due to allergies. They were very accommodating. The salad was filling and presented beautifully.

Firecracker Calamari

We always love the calamari, it never disappoints! Otter Cove was amazing during quarantine with it's take out service and with the opening after May 20th. They have always offered great service and hospitality along with delicious food. It's a win, win! Thank you!

I have eaten at Otter Cove before and the service has always been wonderful and the food was always perfect. I ordered the Jambalaya and was not disappointed. It was the perfect blend of meats, vegetables and Cajun spiced sauce. The portion was so big that I gave plenty for another meal 🥘!

New York Steak

I ordered the surf and turf special with the steak and crab cake. The steak was amazing - it was one of the juiciest steaks I have ever had. The crab cake was crispy with fresh chunks of crab meat. The asparagus was fresh and well-done; I enjoyed them even though I am not the biggest fan of asparagus. The rice that came with the dish was a little too dry and salty, but the main dish were fantastic. Definitely recommend!

Crab Cake Sandwich

This was my all time favorite crab cake sandwich. It's the top of the line with the added lobster and bacon. I highly recommend getting this sandwich!

Lobster Roll

For Mother's Day, we chose the Lobster Roll, Mac and Cheese, and twin filet of beef. The whole meal was amazing. Lew's lobster roll review is "That's better then the place in Noank, the roll is nice and crunchy and bigger than a hotdog roll, and there is a ton of good meat! Seriously delicious, and it came with What taste like hand cut French fries and homemade chocolate chip cookies!" We shared the filet which was cooked to perfection and delicious as always. Then there's the kids Mac and cheese. Wow! Yummy, shells with a. Creamy sauce topped with a light crumb. Again the whole meal was to die for! Thank you Lisa and Scott for spending you day, making my day better!

Fried Seafood Platter

To say it was amazing is not enough, portion surpasses our expectations, but when we tasted a scallop our mouths and hearts were happy. Best platter thus far we've had in a very, very long time. Not to mention we felt the love of added goodies, roadside is tough enough. This establishment packaged nicely, showed the care to customers and added chocolate chip cookies at no extra cost! Can't wait to pray fully soon be able to sit and dine in, or try their patio next time in town.

Petite Filet

Since moving to OS 2 years ago (ironically in Otter Cove), Otter Cove Restaurant has become one of our favorites! Always consistent in their quality of food, I can be guaranteed a great meal, whatever I choose. We typically eat in the bar area by our choosing and order anything from full entrees to light fare & drink. My experience in ordering take out (Covid pandemic) was no exception! My filet was done to my specifications w/wonderful sides. I'm proud to support them during these difficult times and look forward to returning when the timing is right!

Twin Filet

Working a lot of hours as an "essential employee" leaves little time and/or energy to come home and cook. Ordered take out which was your twin fillet meal. Was cooked perfectly and was super tender. Looking forward to trying more offerings from your menu. Great job! Jim W.
