My friend and I visited this nice little cottage food establishment on a Thursday night. We were told by the locals that reservations would not be needed on a Thursday night, and they were not. The prices, ambiance, service, and food were all wonderful. The owner came over and personally greeted us and asked if we were satisfied with everything.... More

This place was the best for atmosphere, food and service that I've experienced in a long time. We sat outside on the patio and couldn't have been more pleased. The food was to die for. We enjoyed fried chicken and crab cakes. The biscuits and apple butter melted in our mouths. I can't wait to return to Hermann and dine... More

The location of the restaurant is not the easiest to find, but it is well worth the visit. The food was authentic and home made, the cottage itself very quaint and rustic. The staff was extremely friendly and even offered dessert on the house. I would advise to dine outside as the scenery is really nice. Loved it!

We were looking for a fun restaurant in Hermann MO and noticed the excellent Trip Review ratings. The most recent 3 reviews highlighted on the Trip Advisor site were very accurate. My wife and I had excellent meals. I had a fascinating melange of a meat loaf that included pastrami. It was accompanied by German cabbage and a delicious golden... More

I was a little disappointed in the food in Hermann, until I had dinner here. The food and service is A+. It is a couple miles outside of Town and worth the drive. I plan to drive back to this place some time in the future just to experience the Sunday Brunch. Spoke with the owner and she said after... More

This was our first visit to Hermann, MO, and we were so glad we discovered The Cottage Restaurant. It's nestled back in the woods, and we were able to sit out on the patio and enjoy the scenery. The shrimp and grits were amazing as were the fried apples. Great service, too. Highly recommend!

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.
