...and we sure didn't regret it. Easy access off of the highway and easy parking in the old mill section. No problem parking even with a Fischer Cats ball game in progress. Cotton is casual/upscale and you won't be out of place in either dress or upscale casual clothes. The atmosphere is sporty/lofty with a vine covered out door patio... More

Our second time at Cotton, the food and service was supreme. The four of us had a variety of drinks, meat and seafood dishes and all the food and the service was outstanding. The one negative was where we were seated - I had made reservations early in the week (we ate on Friday evening) and were seated in a... More

Another great find using TripAdvisor ratings! It was a little tricky to find but worth the effort! Their free parking lot is adjacent to the restaurant in the back. They have a private outdoor seating area next to the parking lot. The staff was very friendly and the food was great. We were there for lunch. We had the pot... More

Cotton is such a "go to" restaurant for top quality food prepared exquisitely. There's nothing not to like about this spot except if you're seated in one of the twosome tables and don't have particularly nice neighbors. The service is as exceptional as the food that never fails to delight the senses and please the palate. After all these years--it's... More

Awesome food. Period. We went for valentines day. Our menu consisted of the hot goat cheese app, lamb/asparagus/fingerling potatoes and steak with mashed potatoes. My lamb was the bomb and the mashed potatoes were the best I've ever had in my life. Overall great experience. A little hard to find, but cool intimate atmosphere, friendly attentive staff and great food.... More

There was a time when going out for a martini and apps at Cotton was one of my favorite stops. I hadn't been for quite some time and wasn't sure why I had stopped, so we made a trip over for dinner. I remember now why I had stopped. Something about the bartender that works there is very off putting.... More

We've been going to Cotton occasionally for many years. It's usually very good and consistent in the quality of the food. This time was not so much. It was still good but just not as much as before. For example a change in the mashed potatoes makes them now oh-so-average. The meatloaf tasted like a lower quality meat blend and... More

We recently went to Cotton. I had been there three times before and did not like the food any of the times but it had been a couple of years so I decided we should try again having read some recent favorable online reviews. We sat on the patio, which was a good choice. It is very relaxing and you... More

The food was delicious, the atmosphere was relaxed. Outside seating is on the parking lot, but there are lots of plants to divide the two. The bar is the best place to sit or the tables near the bar.

I've lived in NH for about 30 years and eaten at many establishments. I've also traveled a good amount. My meal at Cotton was the best meal I've ever had anywhere in New Hampshire and in the top 5 of my entire life. The steak Diane was perfect in every way. We ate outside on a covered patio which was... More
