Good for casual comfort food

Food was good and prices were reasonable. Atmosphere is average at best but service is good. If wanting an easy bite to eat with comfort food, then this is a good stop.

For the price, the food was good and plentiful. Service was excellent. Unfortunately, the restaurant is in need of some major repairs, inside and out. The booth cushions are all worn, cracked and torn. The walls, floors, tables and entire interior is outdated, worn, and has the appearance of being unclean. Worst of all were the bathrooms. Both were very... More

My boyfriend and I stopped here on our way home to PA after visiting family. The place is adorable and just the right size. We had breakfast, I got a ham egg and cheese on toasted bread, a side of hash browns (which they originally forgot to cook but it came out fast after they realized). Everything was fantastic including... More

This is a family operated restaurant. The food is very good with a large menu. The restaurant offers daily specials. The portions are large and the service is friendly. Lunch for 2 with desert and coffee was $19.00. A real bargain for the food you receive. A very friendly staff. The restaurant is located directly off route 80 for easy... More

5 of us wanted a hearty meal the night before a long hike and The Cottage didn't disappoint. I had the grilled chicken, 2 large boneless pieces with sides for under $10. Large portions, great value and friendly service.

And the salads come loaded down with a pile of french fries. The service was adequate but the salad was wilted, and I have nevee seen such sorry, overcooked boiled chicken being sold as grilled. Very strange. Liked the lima beans and veggie beef soup.
