Very good food, nice, quiet setting, good prices

My wife and I had lunch here and really enjoyed it. The Cottage is outside of Hermann a couple of miles, located up a backroad in the woods. Very nice setting, quiet and relaxing. Their prices are quite reasonable and quality is very good. Service was good too.

Our first visit to The Cottage was so nice! We sat on the Patio which has a lovely view of the woods. We ordered the specials (Mahi Mahi and the Stuffed Pork Loin). The entrees were delicious served with Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Golden Beets. For dessert, we had the Bread Pudding. Our server was pleasant and prompt and we... More

Gorgeous patio area, interesting paintings hanging inside. Good variety of food, and things I have never had. Moderate prices, cozy atmosphere.

My fiance had never been to the cottage and I myself had never been when it was nice enough to sit outside. Loved the perfect ambiance. Mary, the owner, is always there to welcome you and ensure everyone's happiness. The menu is diverse and intriguing, makes for a great read, and the food is even better! Highly recommend!

Excellent food quality and presentation, equalled by the devoted, sincere customer service. We ordered the crab cakes ($16) and ribeye ($25), garlic mashed potatoes, sauted golden beets, and the caramel ice box pie for dessert. Everything was prepared to perfection. The owner personally serves as the hostess greeting everyone and came back regularly to ensure everything was perfect. All employees... More

We were out wine tasting and asked for a recommendation. This place was suggested, so we checked it out on trip advisor. Let's just say it was an awesome find. I had the lunch special, it was possibly a top 5 sandwich in my life. Great service, beautiful intimate setting in the woods. We will return.

The Cottage restaurant is an out of the way place that offers a quiet, friendly atmosphere and a mixture of homestyle and deliciously differnt dishes. If you can't decide on which special to have, GET THE CHICHEN.

The food was good, but asked for my salmon to be medium well as I do not like rare salmon, but was served rare salmon. All other food was good and dessert was delicious. We had salted caramel ice box pie and fudge brownie with ice cream. Made reservations. Service was ok. Like the menu variety.

This restaurant is out of the way and really can't be walked to from downtown. But it is so worth the 4 min drive up the hill. The atmosphere with it's comfortable seating and fabulous art is amazing. The Serivce is outstanding and the food. The food is so fresh and tastey. Their menu is constiantly changing, but you can...

South of Hermann a little and in the hills. Very good food ( I had the pan fried chicken ) and service. Outside dining was great! Worth the very short drive.
