My husband and I have been meaning to try this restaurant, established about 100 years ago, for quite some time. We went last evening for our anniversary. We got there a bit late--they are only open till 9:00, but the staff couldn't have been more cordial and welcoming. It reminds me of an old-fashioned diner. I ordered their half a... More

Restaurant was a cozy local place. Waitress was very sweet and informative. Tried a KY Hot Brown Sandwich since I was in KY for a vacation and had never had one before. It was good, a different experience. However the desert was amazing! I had the dutch apple pie....it was delicious! Homemade and perfect. Will be back.

I have been a Cottage fan for years. Had lunch there today and ordered breakfast. The Goetta was bad. I thought it was a mistake and asked if they had changed brands and was told they did. Mistake.

We took our parents here a birthday dinner and were pleasantly surprised. Good home cooked food. We had the cat fish nuggets, which were just OK. The sides were delicious though: mashed potatoes, hushpuppies, mac and cheese. My husband said the steak was very good as well. Also, we were there on Wednesday, which apparently is free cookie day, and... More

Local restaurant -- good food, great beef barley soup! Locals really like the place so did I. Not a chain.

A warm atmosphere with home cooked food, not expensive but good food. If you you are looking for 4/5 star experience this is not the place. Colonial cottage is just home cooked food and atmosphere

We've recently moved to the area and are in the process of trying out new local restaurants. I review them on Trip Advisor and YELP before deciding where to go. We went for lunch on a Saturday and it was semi-busy. Our service was terrific - no complaints at all. My husband ordered breakfast and I ordered the country fried... More
