I hate to rag on a restaurant in my hometown, but frankly our, experience the other night just wasn't good at all. My wife ordered the rueben, which had almost no sauerkraut and very dry meat. She didn't eat it, the server asked if she wanted something else, but we had a fussy baby with us so she declined. Not... More

I went there specifically to watch a hockey game, hometown team. Bartender had the wrong station tuned in and everyone missed the first five minutes and the home team's first goal. Good beer, food and service except I had to find the server to pay the check. Plenty of tv's, but none very large.

Wait staff not quite aware of "wait" business. Putsy and some attitude. You get what you pay for! We will only return when desperate for happy hour!

The American Motorsports Bar is a bit of 60's nostalgia. My wife and I have had lunch there on several occasions and have never been disappointed. Good burgers and fries at a great price, served by an attentive wait staff.

Meet up with some friends at the carbar on a Saturday morning for breakfast.To our surprise the female bartender was enjoying shots with a group of patrons on more than one occasion! Don't know if this is the norm at this establishment. Not really a big deal to us, but the bartender was awful slow serving us while she entertained... More

The Car Bar, as it is affectionately called is a great locally owned reataurant. The service and food have always good. They have great apps and a good selection of beer and TVs for sports events.

This is our go to place. The menu has something for everyone. It's clean, it has a good atmosphere and they aren't a chain! Best place to eat out in Cottage Grove.

My husband and I live in cottage grove and we go in for the burger special (6.49) every other week. It comes with fries and a drink. You can get them done med rare, which is great. Tasty every time. Enjoy!
