We have been long time patrons of Nick's Cove yet the magic of the weekend was still above and beyond what I could have imagined. Our guests said the food was memorable and the venue was where they wished "all our friends would get married". No one wanted to leave at the end of the weekend. The service was prompt and friendly. Already looking forward to our anniversary next year as it will be an excuse to stay again at Nick's Cove. Thanks Nick's!Sent on 04/25/2017

Worked with Erikka during the transition and she's very efficient, patient, flexible, hands on, and has a genuine interest and care for her clients. All the servers and bartenders were attentive and had utmost care and professionalism throughout the wedding reception. I wanted to give a shout out to CarolAnne, one of the servers, who was thoughtful and provided extra touches to make the event more special. If you love seafood, you're in for a delectable treat....worthy of it's Michelin Guide recommendation! The view and the venue is just perfect for an intimate setting....where else can you get a gorgeous garden with fresh lavender scent in the air for the ceremony, a private beach for smores and cornhole for the cocktail hour, and an indoor space with a sunset, all within walking distance?Sent on 09/28/2016

We had the most wonderful wedding at Nick's Cove! The entire day went off without a hitch, and every member of their team made both us and our guests feel welcome from start to finish. We held our ceremony in the garden, which we loved; the food that followed was delicious and won rave reviews all around. This was a wonderful choice for our wedding, and we recommend it highly!Sent on 10/02/2016
