Called in a takeout order one night. Arrived to a restaurant approximately half full, and only one other person ahead of me in line for takeout. There were numerous waiters standing around. Gave one of them my name and took a seat to wait. About 25-30 minutes later I finally received my order. That's not counting the time from when... More

Have been to other Cotton Patch Cafe restaurants and the food has been good. The server was meh, she kept "forgetting" everything! Poured tea into a coke refill and did not refill the tea. Our party of 6, two meals came out, then 10 minutes later, the rest of the meals came out. We had to ask the server for... More

We made a mistake. Not much quality in any area. 2 of 3 in our group did not eat their dinner. Try somewhere else is our advice.

Good food, nice atmosphere, fairly standard for a Cotton Patch experience. Our waitress was awesome - we had a large group and a limited amount of time. She handled our group excellently.

Visited during lunch and had a really good experience. Lots of people but we were seated very quickly. Both our dishes were excellent, with my wife having an extra delicious veggie plate and me having a perfect club. Very courteous service!!

You just can't beat the fried chicken salad at the Cotton Patch! The little tortilla strips on top added even more crunch. The yeast rolls and cornbread are complimentary. The cornbread was too crumbly. Service was great, prices are reasonable.

The food was ok. I had the salmon with a salad (ask for the dressing on the side) and steamed vegetables. My husband had the Chicken fried steak and said it was very good, and a salad. We were seated right away and our server was nice and attentive.

We always end up here when we can't decide where to go. Tonight's meal was good as usual with good and fast service. One thing I like is you can always get a senior plate. This restaurant does need to refresh the interior

The restaurant has a large selection of salads. I had the 3 veggie plate with salad. If you do not like cucumber, besure to tell the waiters early because the salad is loaded. The salad was fresh and quite large. I got the green beans, garlic potatoes and squash casserole. The green beans were very greasy and the garlic potatoes... More
