Great Food. Everything Else Was Strange

We stopped in for lunch and the restaurant was very busy. We found a table and discovered the first problem with the restaurant. The tables are incredibly close together. Plan on being jostled by servers and other customers as you eat. Other than this, the restaurant is kind of cool with lots of... read more

While passing through Cranbrook, BC we searched Urban Spoon for a lunch stop. The Cottage Restaurant had the most stars and we weren't at all disappointed. The food was good, prices fair and service friendly.

The Cottage Restaurant is a down-home, wonderful place to eat. The staff are friendly, helpful and remember you. I go there as often as I can.

The seating is extremely cramped though. This is especially problematic because the soup bar is self-serve, and you have to... More

Right from the prospects of seeing people drinking what looked like wonderful lemonade from a glass boot---then discovering that it tasted like something instant from a powder, this restaurant produced a chain of disappointments. After figuring out what we wanted to order.....then suddenly finding they were out of cabbage roles; then tasting what we hoped would be a great borsch... More

What a cute little place. We were shopping for new ski boots and this place was recommended by Shane at Gerrick's Ski's and Bikes. Thank you for the tip! Since both Bob & I prefer to cook our own meals rather than eat by default in restaurants, The Cottage Restaurant has now been added to our small list of awesome!... More
