Famous Dishes


The Bushwacker is the perfect cocktail to keep you cool when temperatures start rising, and fans of Pirates Cove in Josephine argue that this beachside restaurant has one of the best. Served chilled, this creamy treat includes Kahlúa, Malibu Rum and vanilla ice cream topped with Cruzan 151 Rum. It’s like a tropical milkshake for adults!


Home of the legendary cheeseburger from Jimmy Buffett’s song “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” Pirates Cove is the perfect place to spend the day eating and drinking on the beach. No shirt or shoes required. Crafted from 1/3 pound of angus beef, this cheeseburger is topped with lettuce, tomato, cheddar cheese, grilled onions and a special sauce. All you’ll need is one bite and your feet in the sand to understand how this place inspired a song.
