We first came here in December of 2014 and we come here every time we vacation in the mountains. The garlic knots are to die for and the pizza is amazing the hot wings are HOT! The food here is great!

I enjoyed this place with my husband on a Saturday afternoon. Great service, clean and good food. Pizza had nice crust baked perfectly and the right amount of cheese and toppings. Many refills of iced tea. Near attractions, so conveniently located.

Do NOT order for delivery. I live in the community and want local businesses to thrive. But, seriously, there's no excuse for being rude to customers who have waited over 2 hrs for their food. Mine arrived stone cold.

If you go to this place, don't expect anything beautiful to look at. Well, except for the delicious food they put in front of you. We make it a point to visit The Cottage every year during our annual family mountain trip. I don't think...More

We eat here every other week and always have excellent food and service. Large portions, so my Fiancé and I usually split a meal. Our current favorite is the Turkey melt with lettuce and tomatoes on the side. The Guido is amazing!!! It's a meatball...More
