To Our Wonderful Guests, Family and Staff at Cove Tavern:

Cove Tavern staff and management feel it's our responsibility to share with you the precautionary measures being taken to ensure the health and well being of our team and guests during these times. Frequently touched objects/items will be wiped down on an hourly basis. All employees will follow CDC recommendations and use gloves when handling food. Wellness checks are regularly done before the start of the day and any employee showing flu like symptoms/fever will be sent home until they have doctor clearance. All of our staff have Newport News food safety cards or Serve Safe certificates.

We offer social distancing at our restaurant and will limit the amount of people in the building. We offer pick up orders from our website, deliver lunch within a half a mile and use Door Dash for all other deliveries. All pre-order inquiries or questions please call the restaurant at 757-596-1830.

Most importantly we want our customers to not live in fear or worry but rather know that Cove Tavern is doing everything we can to create a safe space for our customers. We are adjusting to what the CDC and our government is telling us todo at all times, and will make adjustments as new advisories come out.

We love you and be safe!!!!
Cove Tavern Management and Staff
