Miller's at the Cove     
By Annette Langenstein, Staff Writer 

Millers at the Cove is a sports bar that lets the light shine in.  Located at 63346 Boat Basin Road in Charleston, it’s in Oyster Cove Square. I spoke with Scott Miller, manager of this trendy eatery, on a sunny afternoon that indeed had the sun shining through the many windows.  It has an open, airy and very friendly feel to it, with smiling employees and many satisfied customers.

Millers at the Cove opened on December 17 of 2010, a little over three years ago.  Says Scott, “We employ eight people now, and I never thought I’d have that many employees!” But with a full bar, beer, wine, and of course outstanding food, it’s no wonder the place is always busy.

I asked Scott what he saw as his specialty here at the Cove. “Food-wise, our specialty has got to be the fish tacos. We always have cod tacos, and right now we have a special on halibut ones. We occasionally offer snapper tacos, and of course if there’s fresh tuna or salmon available, we’ll offer that as a special. We get all our seafood right down the road at Bandon Pacific Seafood, so you know it’s fresh. Actually, that’s even where we get the meat for our fantastic hand-pattied beef burgers,” he said.

You’ll find something for everyone at Millers At the Cove Sports Bar in Charleston, Oregon.

Looking over the menu, Scott observed, “We try and have something for people from five to 80 years old.  Although we strive to be a sports bar, it’s a kid-friendly place. There’s a menu for kids and seniors, or those with smaller appetites.”  There are even gluten-free options.

 Scott came to our area from the Midwest, where he owned a restaurant and two bars, located just outside of Denver.  He’s been in this business for 21 years, so he knows what he’s doing, and it shows. But he says, “Before I came here, I had never done anything with seafood. I learned a lot about the local ocean foods and we now combine my Midwest menu with a West Coast one.” 

So here you can find beef, bean, chicken or pork burritos, and lots of sandwiches like pork tenderloin, French dip, deli sandwiches or a meatball sub. And don’t forget their famous green chili, which Scott says they sell a lot of. There are sirloin steaks and chicken strips, and if you want a seafood sandwich, try the mouth-watering Dungeness crab or bay shrimp melt. There are seafood platters and baskets, clam chowder, salads, and even an oyster burger.  Did I mention dessert?  They have that, too!  All in all, a great combination and variety of delicious food can always be found here.

As for his beer selection, Millers has 7 microbrews on tap, with 6 micros in bottles.  They always have one rotating beer, and hopefully will expand to two. Scott says that they want to start serving some local microbrews at the Cove, and he loves the local items we are so lucky to have.

Millers at the Cove is open seven days a week, starting at 11 am.  The restaurant closes at 9 pm but the bar stays open until 10 pm. Their phone number is 541-808-2404, so don’t be shy about calling Scott and learning more about this outstanding addition to the Charleston restaurant scene.
