Why Local Is Important To Us

There are so many reasons why shopping local is important to us and should be important to you. Not only do we get to know the farmers and families, but we get to know how the ingredients are produced from farm to table.

On top of knowing where everything comes from, shopping local allows for us to invest in the community and help with it’s growth.

The humble beginnings

With The Cove Waterfront Grill, you’re guaranteed food that tastes as amazing it looks.

Owned and operated by a Kingston-based couple with a voracious appetite to serve guests quality food, The Cove Waterfront Grill exists to slash the stress from a long day at work with a delicious home cooked meal or planning an event – however big or small it is.

Using fresh, high-quality, locally-sourced ingredients, our team knows every recipe begins with one important ingredient: passion.

“We just love providing people with great food,” says Mel McNulty, owner. “We get up early the morning of the event and make it fresh – not the day or the night before. We don’t cut any corners. We want the food to be presentable and taste as great as it looks.”

It’s truly a company that cares; an enterprise that wants every family, person or gathering that comes to the restaurant to have an amazing time. They want every event they cater to be memorable. “We have compassion for people,” says Mel. “This is something we’re good at. We want to do a job, and do it well.”

From the early planning stages to the clean-up following the meal, we are there for its customers every step of the way. “We want the experience to be pleasant for people,” says Mel. “It’s how we want to be remembered.”
