We love visiting The Cottage. Their quaint, very inviting atmosphere, creates a cozy environment. Always friendly. Love the half desserts. But, the main reason we go is for the shrimp soup and cirnbread. Best cornbread ever! Salads are great. Cottage potatoes delicious. Great little place.

The owner is extremely friendly and so is the waitstaff. We were promptly helped and given great, quick, service. The ham and Swiss roll ups are delectable, and the whole experience was delightful. Will certainly return again and again.

Food is always fantastic. Cream of broccoli soup is great. Also enjoy the hot chicken sandwich. Stuffed cheeseburger is also one of the best burgers in town. Service is normally good.

The menu here does not change aside from the daily specials but everything I have tried is wonderful. It is imperative to order the shrimp soup and my husband recommends the almond tea.
