My wife and I really enjoyed our evening at The Cottage. The service was excellent and the restaurant's setting, on a steep hillside above Hermann, is unbeatable for views, quiet peacefulness and overall charm. Our only minor quibble was with the rather limited offering of entrees. That minor issue aside, we had a wonderful time and will be sure to... More

The location is awesome. You can sit inside or outside. The outside patio is on the side of the hill and right among the trees. So this place gets points for setting and ambiance. The food left a lot to be desired. The rolls are good. My salad with ranch dressing hardly had any dressing at all. The ribeye was... More

Out of all the restaurant's recommended this was one of the top 3. Beautiful location. Definitely recommend the portabello mushroom ravioli. Average price and great customer service!

Four of us stopped by for lunch after searching Trip Advisor for a restaurant in Hermann MO. The food was great, the staff were so nice. We really appreciated the fresh, local ingredients. Be aware that the restaurant prefers cash or check to credit cards. Also, the prices are very reasonable.

We had the time of our life. We stayed in the George Johnson cottage. It was clean, stocked with food and drinks. The view from the deck over seeing the river was awesome! It was very quite, and romantic. We will take another trip.

We ate lunch here. The food was excellent with all locally grown and raised food. We were disappointed that they didn't have Southern Fried Chicken on the lunch menu as we had a wedding dinner that evening but it is just another motivation to return to Hermann, MO!!

If you can, sit on the patio out back. The rock hills are a nice background. I believe most everything is made on site and it tastes like someone cares. A great place for a new experience.

The Cottage was highly recommended and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the service was 5 star. We had the pork and seafood specials followed by the caramel bread pudding which was to die for. This was the perfect ending to our anniversary!

We visited The Cottage over the Valentine's Day weekend and were just so impressed with the ambiance (really just like a cottage -- feels almost like being in somebody's house!), the quality of the food and the exceptional service. My husband had the fried chicken, which he thought was excellent, and I had the quiche of the day which was... More

The new owner Mary took our reservation early in the day and proceeded to greet us upon our arrival later that evening. After some pleasant conversation with Mary on family origins we met our waitress Carie (forgive the spelling if not correct). She laid out the various specials, helped with the appi and made sure our meal came at a... More
