Good But Pricey

We went on a Saturday Night. The food & service were very good. The atmosphere was nice, but I think honestly they cater more to bigger parties & Banquets. We were in a very large, very "open" room. It was filled with long tables with very large groups & it was quite noisy. Also, although the food... read more

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

Cotton Exchange has been around a while. A giant, very modernized barn. 2 or 3 dining rooms, bar and a banquet hall. Excellent food and even a drive thru fish fry. Always a good place to go, especially with guests.

I have not been to brunch here in quite some time. They have a new cook since I last dined here. The food was outstanding. Beef shoulder with caramelized onions and Jack Daniels sauce. The tenderness and the taste of the meat was great. The prime rib was tender and flavorful. The french toast (prepared in the kitchen and brought... More

I have been to the Cotton Exchange over the years for a variety of reasons. The family who runs it are really nice and considerate people. I've been for big family events for the Sunday brunch. It's a great value and good food. If you have a larger group, request to be seated in the Silo. It's a great and... More

Nice environment, friendly wait staff, average food that is a bit over priced. However, they do have basic menu options all the way to specialty or unique options to choose from. I enjoyed the catered events but most dinners I left feeling overcharged for the food and not wanting to return anytime soon after. Willing to try again.
