Found this place because of BA. Would have never found it without! In kind of an odd area (at least, coming from my hotel). There are two sides to this place. A beer bar with about 23 taps of craft brews, with many different styles; and is non-smoking. Then there is a whiskey bar next door that is smoking friendly (you cannot smell it next door), has about 150 whiskey, bourbon, and scotch varieties, pool tables, games, etc.; and you can still order all of the beers from the taps next door. Both sides have a huge selection of bottled beer to choose from. I was fortunate enough to grab a bomber of Black Butte XXVI to carry out and put in my suitcase to take home. The food here is very good; and they have great specials every day. I had the filet mignon special on Monday night. I was not expecting such a nice couple of medallions that were seasoned and cooked to perfection. Served with homemade mashed potatoes, and I got a Caesar salad as a side. For $13.99?!

I highly recommend this place anytime you are in the York area.

Recently updated their menu, prices and selection have changed accordlingly. Still a great selection of beer on tap, the vibe is alway busy, not exactly a hipster hangout but good food, great selection of beer and entertainment (music, sports per season).

I finally checked this place out after a friend had recommended it. Plenty of parking in the back. We sat in the bar area. The bartender was also our waiter. He did a great job! We had a Speedway Stout and Bell's Two Hearted. The draft selection was very good. I ordered a burger- delicious! I would definitely recommend The Cove for some good beers, looking forward to trying more food there!
