Today, Bob Platt, founder and owner of the Inn at Pirates Cove will take a step back from the day to day operation of the well known and locally appreciated Inn and waterfront dinning destination.
It has been 32 years since Bob first purchased the Inn and restaurant. Bob will remain on as owner and continue to be actively involved in the operation of the Marina facility. The hospitality side of the restaurant operation will be led by General Manager Richard Whelan. Richard has worked along side Bob for almost 10 years and will be supported by a team featuring Bob’s son Derek, Mike Wexler, Kristy Phipps and Cheryl Barnett. A strong management team with much experience, the team will continue to build on the long lasting relationships within the local community over the years.
In preparation for Bob’s retirement Bob has engaged the consulting services of a local hospitality-consulting group, M & A Hospitality operated by Michael Galway and Anthony Clarke. M & A Hospitality who have had much success with a group of Irish restaurants in the Annapolis area have been engaged to build on the already well known food and beverage success the location has to offer.
All of the management, staff and friends of the Pirates Cove wish Bob the very best in his retirement and trust that he will quickly learn how to enjoy and relax with his newfound time.
