The Cove Surf and Turf restaurant is here to serve the areas of New Bedford, South Dartmouth, North Dartmouth, Fairhaven, Westport, and Acushnet, Massachusetts. We are ready to help you cater for any kind of event and we have delivery services. If you would rather come and eat here, we have outdoor dining by the water. There are a variety of wonderful family and party tray catering items we have to offer which are available to order online. If you prefer getting curbside pickup, you will receive your order contact-free. We have hot-holding equipment and utensils for serving including spoons, spatulas, and tongs that you can add to your party tray order.

Each of our party trays can be ordered to deliver to you either cold and ready to reheat or hot and ready to serve immediately for any party or a gathering. When combined with two sides and an appetizer, you can feed up to 10 people for every small tray of main entrees per order. Large tray portions can serve up to 25 people when ordered with two sides and appetizers as well. The large trays are more than double the size of the small trays and are exceptional for very large gatherings such as family reunions or special events.

Christmas is the perfect time to preorder food for you and your family. Here at Cove Surf and Turf, we are open on Christmas Eve to distribute all of your preordered meals just in time for Christmas and closed on Christmas Day so please plan ahead and preorder as soon as possible. If you want to try us for an end of the year celebration instead, we will be open during our regular hours on New Years’ Eve and New Years’ Day.

Our appetizer party tray options include barbeque baby back ribs with our in house special sauce, buffalo chicken tenders, plain chicken tenders, clam cakes, stuffed quahogs, clam chowder, potato skins, and garden salads. As far as fried appetizers go, you can choose from either scallops, haddock, whole belly clams, clam strips, oysters, calamari, or shrimp. The famous seafood party trays will really get your taste buds going. Try our stuffed lobster casserole which has fresh lobster meat mixed into our loaded stuffing along with real crabmeat, small shrimp, fresh clams, and sea scallops that are cooked to perfection. If you want some different party tray options, try our baked sea scallops and baked haddock. These dishes are cooked in butter and lemon then seasoned and topped with crunchy bread crumbs.

On to our chicken and meat party trays, we have a steak tips tray that has tender cuts of sirloin mixed with onions, mushrooms, and peppers. If you are looking for great ribs that fall off the bone, feel free to order the barbeque baby back ribs tray. Fair warning, if you choose to serve these, expect that they will be gone before you know it! Who doesn’t like fried chicken? You can order trays of plain boneless chicken tenders that are ready to eat and dip into your favorite sauce. If you are in the mood for spicy buffalo chicken tenders we have that on our menu too. The buffalo chicken tenders come with a blue cheese dip when you order. If you like French meat pies, Cove Surf and Turf is your spot. These meat pies weigh three pounds each and are a savory dish cooked with ground beef, pork, and onions and come with a bowl of gravy. Add a quart of mashed potatoes or our veg of the day to serve with your meat pies. An extra special item in this category is the Portuguese surf and turf tray. This dish is made with rice, Mozambique shrimp, sirloin tips, and fried eggs.

We also have pasta and sauté party trays. This category includes grilled chicken parmesan, baked mac and cheese, baked ziti, garlic broccoli and penne, alfredo broccoli and penne, and just a basic pasta and sauce tray. The baked mac and cheese come in the following three flavors: plain, buffalo chicken, or lobster. All of our mac and cheese trays are baked with a three cheese blend and have a crispy crouton topping covering the top. If you are interested in sandwich party trays, we also have several items on that menu that are easy to serve. Choose from either grilled chicken wraps, spicy haddock wraps, tuna melts, fish fillet sandwiches, or lobster rolls. All of these items will come ready to serve in trays for you.

Our surf and turf restaurant would love to cater all the food for your holiday meals and family gatherings.
