Bove Restaurant & Bar
Rated: 3.1 out of 5 with 23 Reviews

New restaurant in Pawleys Island, Bove, pronounced like cove, as in a secret cove. Its inspiration is Eleanora LeeBove, the much-love matriarch of a family that moved from Naples, Italy, to the green mountains of Vermont in the 1920s, where the Bove family name has long been associated with delicious food, unparalleled, and service time-honored traditions with deep Italian roots. Hours: Monday - Saturday 5-10 with happy hour 5-7pm.

Food was good, but took forever to get the bill. Service was poor. Not a happy waitress. Could not get credit card machine to run. Would not honor coupon until we argued for it. Then they acted as though they did us a favor. Piano music is WAY too loud. It is difficult to hold a conversation. We used to enjoy this restaurant. Will try elsewhere in the future.

WOW! Don't eat at places like this often ... had a coupon so decided to try it out and will definately return coupon or not! All of the food was like what you see on TV ... and everything had great flavors and just tasted amazing! Moved here about the beginning of the year and eat out all the time - this was my favorite meal so far. YUM! Try it out ... you won't be disappointed!

Wonderful restaurant. Great menu....small but complete which is what I like. The food is terrific as is the ambiance which included a pianist. There were eight of us. Some of us had drinks, appetizers, and dessert in addition to the main course. With tax and a 20% tip, the per person average was $35.00. All eight of us agreed that we will return to Bove often. Great value. You will not be disappointed!!

A group of four tried to eat at Bove on a Friday night. The first clue that something was wrong was that there were only about 3 other tables of people, the rest of the place was EMPTY. They sat us right away however the hostess did not smile once and was very short with us. The menu is limited and seemed a bit pricey. We sat for 10 minutes and still nobody had come to take a drink order. When we flagged down a waiter, he gave us a dirty look for wanting to order a beverage. Walked out before they even had the chance to come over. Absolutely the WORST service I have ever experienced. Will never go back again.

Please be aware, the postings on 9-14 and 9-15 were made by a disgruntled employee who was terminated on 9-14. This person has "bragged" about these postings and how funny it was to make a "poor" rating for this restaurant. We apologize for the actions of this past employee.

A group of us had dinner on 11/7/09 the service was the worst I have ever had at a restuarant. The waitress ignored our table, never came to see how our food was, etc. She never refilled waterglasses. provided sweetners for iced tea, and failed to bring a dressing that I had requested. The service at this place was excellent in the past, it has rapidly gone downhill.

I have a hard time in believing that any one can submit a review like the one below. We have dined there twice in the last month, Both times it was great. The first time there was piano music at it's best, This past friday they had a guest piano player and he was fantastic, our food was some of the best that we had ever had. Both times we have taken different friends to this place, their comments were the same as our's, Fantastic. This is going to be on the top of our list when we go out for very nice place and for great food and a fantastic evening!

Change in personnel - definitely a mistake. We dined here last month and just this past week. Difference is disappointing. Suggest dining at Bistro 217!

Total chaos...Mgment sits at bar; chef yells and can be heard in the bar; employee changes both in dining and bar areas are inferior compared to two months ago....Would suggest u spend your money some place else. My business brings me to the area every couple of months, my next trip will be to some other local restaurant!

Over-rated dinner experience. Owner and GM sit at the bar all night drinking. Can hear, from the bar, chef (apparently owners son) yelling at servers. Not worth the money!!!

The owner sits at the bar and drinks all night long. If you sit at the bar you can hear the owner's son (Executive chef) yell and cuss servers. General manager is a drunk and sits at the bar most of the night with the owner. Food is old and sits for days as they try to sell by nightly specials. Service is bad as are apparently mostly new servers who dont have a clue what is going on. Would not recommend!

We loved our experience @ Bove! My husband had mamma lee's veal parmesean and I had Bove's wonderful Calf's Liver at the behest of Alan, our waiter. Best Liver I have had ever! Our service was spot on and Alan's personality was wonderful. We will come back for sure next time we are anywhere near Pawleys. GREAT JOB BOVE!

I have dined at Bove on 4 occasions and the food was outstanding each time. My favorites would be the Seared Scallop, any of their fish dishes and by far the best fried calamari this side of Barcelona. Love the atmosphere, all of the wait staff and hostess are excellent and friendly, never a mistake. And sadly, their cheesecake is as delicious as mine so why should I make another, just stop in at Bove. The Ryans, dad and chef, have a real winner!

What a gem!!! This was our second visit. It confirmed our first impression, My lamb chops were just the way I ordered and not an overwhelming quantity. Kudos to the chef. My husband wanted fish and the cod he ordered was something you don't see on every menu. The presentation was spectacular and delicious. Our waitress was very helpful; attentive but inobtrusive. What more can I say about a delightful meal. We'll be back with our boat crew family later in July. Thanks so much.
