A great local option that is family friendly and has space for larger or private parties. Varied menu with good choices and a solid kids menu too.

So I found The Cottage and liked it specifically for it's convenient location, ample parking, and ability to take reservations. Note: I made my... More

Visitors with friends and had a fantastic table seated at the back of the restaurant which overlooks rte 9. From the greeting to the ambiance, I had high expectations of this restaurant. Wine and beer selection was great, and their dessert's were absolutely delicious. Unfortunately, our meals fell flat and was very dissatisfied with what I ate. Flavorless would be... More

We had a very average omelet, accompanies by very fried potatoes and a very fresh biscuit. They had a delicious carrot-ginger juice but in general this is one of the many restaurants that I could recommend to anyone who happens to be within 100 feet of the entrance.

When you're not in the mood to cook and looking for a convenient alternative to "take out delivery", The Cottage is the place to go. It's not a special occasion restaurant nor is it a gourmet restaurant, but the food is reliably solid and there is a wide variety of choice to please even the largest of groups that meet... More

We've been here many times and do like the place. We usually go there with kids and they always take the burgers, which are good. We also came for dinner with friends a few times, and it was good as well. The place is friendly, can accommodate large parties and offers many healthy and yummy choices. Their non-alcohol cocktails are... More
