Key West
In Cincinnati!

Pirates Cove Tropical Bar and Grill is Cincinnati’s Premier Tropical Destination. Since 1993, we’ve been providing fresh Key West inspired flavors to the Tri-State area.

We offer an experience that the whole family will love! You’ll find weekly specials on our great tasting menu for every member of your crew to enjoy. The kids may even find a friendly pirate roaming the sands. Our refreshing signature cocktails and drinks will keep you cool as you enjoy the summer sun. Our huge, open patio deck overlooks over 500 beautiful yachts on the Ohio River at the Four Seasons Marina. Even as the sun goes down, our live music and entertainers light up the entire Cove! We’re voted “Best in The East for Live Music” and “Best in the East for Patio Dining” by Cincinnati’s City Beat Magazine several years running… Come see why!

From our Key West inspired cuisine & signature frozen drinks to the nightly, local acoustic & party bands on the main stage – there’s a short-term “stay-cation” for everyone who crosses the Pirates Cove’s bridge. We will see you on deck…
Captains orders!

Hear What our Maties Have to Say!

  • “We had a great experience! Our waitress Liv made the beginning to end a great experience... [she] seated [us] where we chose and [we had] a beautiful view of the water and boats. A warm day by the water that felt cool because [the] fans and wind coming off water made for a pleasant dinner. We had crab cakes appetizer which was made with blue crab were excellent! The drinks took me to the Caribbean without having to leave Cincinnati! We will be back to try more of the grand options to choose from in this fun atmosphere.” - Jamie M.
  • “The Ambiance of this place was great. I mean it's in the middle of a marina on the water. It had a tiki bar decor. I didn't try the food although it seemed to have a surprisingly good menu with lots of choices. Went with a group and everyone enjoyed the music. Live band, great View, Outdoors. My friend did have the egg rolls and she said they were really good. There was a nice sized bar and tables along each side with a view of the water and boats. A fun place!” Lauri B.
  • “Surprisingly good food. Awesome bands. Great drinks. It is a covered open-air bar restaurant at Four Seasons Marina overlooking the 4 long docks with hundreds of boats on the Ohio River. I don't know how they manage to do it - but the bands here are generally outstanding. Lots of classic rock and popular new country music. Grouper Fingers, fried shrimp, southwestern egg rolls, fries, burgers - all very good.” Chris D.
