ABOUT US

 

We're Tom and Denise Trimpa.

Our restaurant is conveniently located less than 20 minutes northwest of downtown Lawton and just two miles west of Interstate 44 on State Highway 49.  Four miles up the road is the historic cobblestone community of Medicine Park and the main entrance to the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge, the second most visited National Wildlife Refuge in America.

Fishermen's Cove began in 1971 when Peggy Trimpa, then a Dallas businesswoman and Joe, a chef from Portland, Maine  teamed up to opened our first location -- four miles west of our current restaurant.  It was a secluded little building on the southeastern edge of Medicine Park.  The restaurant was small, the atmosphere cozy and the food .... "a winner."  

We were one of the first restaurants in southwest Oklahoma to serve seafood specialties and locals simply referred to Fishermen's Cove as "Peggy and Joe's".  Soon the restaurant's popularity outgrew the tiny location - so the current restaurant was built to accommodate the growing demand for our quality food service.  

The Fishermen's Cove is in every sense of the word a "family operation."  The restaurant is now owned and operated by Tom Trimpa and Denise Trimpa (Peggy's son and daughter-in-law).  Tom is head chef and runs the kitchen operation, while Denise manages the front-of-the-house and greets each and every guest.  Tyler, Tom and Denise's son, assist his Dad in the kitchen prepping food and cooking.  

 

The Fishermen's Cove Restaurant has been awarded "Favorite Catfish Restaurant" by the Lawton Constitution's Reader's Choice Award for the past six consecutive years.

Tom can consistently be found in the kitchen preparing the food the restaurant has become so noted for over the years or in his hickory smoke pit tending to his custom smoked meats.  
Once you've sampled the BBQ and seafood dishes - it is always hard to decide which to order. A few years ago, we noticed that numerous customers would come for dinner with seafood or catfish in mind. But, when pulling into the parking lot, the smells of hickory smoke coming from Tom's meat smoker were so delicious that they were having a hard time deciding between the seafood and the BBQ. So Denise solved the issue by offering their now popular "Best Combo" - which features hickory Smoked Ribs and Freshwater Mississippi Catfish Filet.  It's a heck of combination and well worth trying.

The restaurant  has hundreds of repeat customers who have been loyal to the restaurant for decades.  We personally see to it that ALL GUEST -- be it those who have dined with us countless times or those who are visiting for the first time .... are greeted with a warm smile, good service and the promise of great food.

Come see us soon.
