Lunch under the grapevines

We visited Manchester for the first time ever and really lucked out with our choice of lunch at Cotton. I thoroughly enjoyed the Maine Peeky Toe Crab Cakes: pan-seared twin cakes of fresh Maine crab & snow crab w/ spicy honey chipotle aioli & black bean corn salsa. This was truly a meal (generously... read more

This is one of our favorites. The menu is tops!!! You will not find 200 items on this menu, but what you will find is the best quality food. The menu is managed to ensure every dish is prepared perfectly. The restaurant complements the menu with outstanding specials. We eat here often and are never disappointed. The staff is excellent...

Cotton is a very good and reliable choice for dinner down by the Merrimack River in Manchester, NH. My wife and I have been going there for years, and we especially enjoy going there with friends and other couples. The old mill atmosphere is really nice and the prices are reasonable. I love the lamb, but I also truly enjoy... More

Cotton is an above average casual resturant and bar in the mill area of Manchester. The beer on draft is limited, but decent the wine list and cocktails clock in at a B-. The food ranges from average to excellent. The main entrees are better than the appertizers or desserts and the lamb is outstanding. Service is standard, noise is... More

We had good swordfish entrees with good salads and dessert as well. Nice atmosphere; higher end but typical pricing.

Ok so this is a long overdue review for Cotton. We happened in by chance and what a great surprise. I heard about the place but not much more than the food is good, that was and understatement. We were lucky to get a place to sit at the bar, all tables were booked. We order our meals and everything... More

Loved this place! It's one of those often too rare spots where you promise yourself: "I will dine here again". Great martini's, excellent pot stickers as an app, delicious entres, AND great service! Ashley, our server was the ideal in her role, explaining choices, a little guidance, and a wonderful & pleasant demeanor! The owner also came over to chat... More
