“Great Local Joint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Somehow, people seem transformed when entering the Cottage Hotel. It's just a friendly and relaxing place to eat, hang with friends, or listen to live music. The best part is the creativity of the cooking staff and the authentic homemade food. Brewed iced tea and from-scratch salad dressings are good examples, but the specials are awesome. And they're typically made from local meats and vegetables, so you know their fresh. Highly recommended.

“Always a fun time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

My family frequently dines at the Cottage. When they are home from college the cottage is a great place to meet and have a tasty meal. From their specials to the coakley plate the food is always consistent. The bar can get noisy and crowded. They offer live entertainment certain evenings. Be aware you may wait an hour or more for a table on Fridays. However it speaks to the popularity and value of this establishment.

“Noisy but fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

It can get crowded in a hurry - and weekend tables may keep you waiting for an hour, but the food is tasty and fresh. They have custom beers, so it is always fun to try something new.

“High School Reunion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Great place to meet friends, the food and service is always consistent. Bands are great. People are always friendly and familiar! It's an all around back-home atmosphere that never changes, no matter how long you have been away. It's nice for a change.
