It was filled with long tables with very large groups & it was quite noisy. Also, although the food... read more

It was a Saturday evening and crowds of families were arriving from a dance recital, yet there was almost no waiting to be seated. The service was very efficient and the food came promptly. The kids were happy with their selection except for the 5 year old who thought a cheeseburger was the same as a grilled cheese sandwich. The... More

The electric sigh of front of this restaurant advertised a ''Fish Fry'' tonight (today was Sunday) it should have been advertising their ''Great Sunday Brunch'' inside. There were only four tables of customers. This place with it GREAT FOOD should have had more customers. They have a soup of the day, salad bar and a sweets table. The entree items... More

We just had a 12 person dinner here last weekend and the venue, food, and service were phenomonal. Everyone raved at how great the food was. Not one complaint at all. From Scallops, to steaks, to ribs, and tuna every ones meals were perfect.

Got a fish fry to go tonight from the drive thru. I only live 5 minutes away so I hurried home so it woudn't get cold. Needless to say the french fries were cold (had to microwave them) and I have to say the fish was the worse I've ever had. It was sooo soggy the breading slipped right off.... More

My husband and I have gotten the Cotton Exchange's fish (via their handy drive up window usually) almost every Friday for 3 years. We love it THAT MUCH! The consistent quality of fish and the generous portions keep us coming back week after week. Add to that the personable staff and you've got a winning combination. When we have eaten... More

Stopped in on a Monday evening to meet friends and dinner. Have been there for their fish fry before and wanted to try something on a different evening. The place was not very busy so only the dining area in the bar was open, which was just fine. A nice fireplace along one wall was inviting. The bartender was very... More
