The relaxed oceanfront setting at Pigeon Cove has drawn visitors, both famous and ordinary, for over a century. Our culture is driven by our proximity to the sea and its bounty, and the experience and personalities of our staff. Pigeon Cove Tavern is a meeting place for any occasion, a romantic candlelit dinner by the sea toasting special dates, large family dinners, or just a drink or two with friends after work.
From our oceanview veranda, enjoy fresh oysters while soaking in the breathtaking views with a refreshing cocktail, fine wine, or craft brew and relax in the cool ocean breeze. Experiencing big-city cuisine in scenic Rockport draws people from across the region, while the warm, genuine hospitality brings them back time and time again.
The Pigeon Cove Tavern opened in 2016 as Emerson Inn’s rejuvented onsite restaurant. With spectacular ocean views from either the parlor, deck, or dining room, Pigeon Cove Tavern sports arguably the best ocean-side dining setting in Rockport and Cape Ann in general. Discover our well curated wine list, popular craft beers, and imaginative cocktails and spirits, alongside our farm-to-table menu hand-crafted by Chef Doug Papows, with spectacularly sourced local seafoods, fruits, vegetables and meats.
Pigeon Cove Tavern is a perfect setting for a candlelit dinner by the sea, a casual gathering of friends and family for drinks and fine fare, or a business get-together. Call us today at the Emerson Inn (978) 546-6321 to make a reservation!
