Nice local restaurant

This is a place where locals hang out. There is a bar section and a restaurant section with a room for small parties. The servers and owners know you by name - very friendly people. The food is ok. The decor fits the name. We usually eat here for lunch. I would recommend it.

We use to live in Cottage Grove and loved going on Thursday night for Spagetti and meat balls! This is the best! Last week we were in town and my husband wanted the spaghetti. I decided to have there taco special. What a big mistake. They were served on a small cold flour shell. Hardly anything in the shell. Also... More

We have been to the sports bar a few times. All of our meals have been great and the service has also been wonderful. Quick food and relaxed atmosphere.

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.

We had a group of eight meet for lunch here at American Motorsports Grill. This was our first visit here. The service and food was very good. The prices are reasonable. Good value for the price. The group's lunch choices ranged from hamburgers, Reuben sandwiches and a salad. All were very good. I personally had the Reuben Sandwich. Plenty of... More
