Enjoyed a Sunday morning stop for breakfast with fresh pecan pancakes! Outstanding!! Service was friendly and timely. Great stop. Great for families AND separate dining room for groups.

My wife and I were visiting our son in Erlanger and before we left today wanted to get something to eat. We stopped at the Colonial Cottage (1st time) and had a wonderful lunch served by a great waiting crew. First, the menu is southern comfort food whether its breakfast, soups, sandwiches, dinners, etc. and they have daily specials to... More

After a day at the Ark and Creation Museum, we were hungry for some good home cooked food. We picked the right spot to eat supper.

Ok...I am a Canadian ordering fried chicken in Kentucky so my pedigree is a bit questionable but the four piece chicken dinner was the best fried chicken I have ever had. They tell you right on the menu to expect a 20 minute wait because they don't precook any but it is well worth waiting every minute. So fresh, so... More

It is becoming an annual event for me to travel to northern Kentucky to visit with friends. The trip wouldn't be complete without stopping at the Colonial Cottage for goetta. This German dish can't be found where I live.

We were looking for an establishment with local fare. The food is fantastic. There was a bit of a wait because they are popular but well worth it. Best Guetta ever!

We had a group of 6 and the service and food was great. I was the one who found Colonial Cottage as I always look for that different kind of place to eat that isn't a chain. Staff great Food great. Wish I had found a day earlier would have loved to try the special Beef & Noodles.
