I have never had a bad meal at the Cottage Restaurant. Family owned and wonderful service. My server is Samatha. What a great waitress. Always asking how my Mom was doing who was at Apple Rehab. She and the whole family are delightful.

What can you add about a restaurant that is not too big, not too small, and knows how to treat guests? Service and food are excellent. Again, an on-site owner who knows her customers is the best way to go, and the Cottage does it...More
