We had a huge group of 52 people come for lunch to Colonial Cottage and I could not be more pleased with the experience. The food was amazing and everyone loved it! Our choices were Fried Chicken (two pieces of white meat or dark meat), Fried or Blackened Catfish or Kentucky Hot Brown. It came with sides and our choice... More

I ordered breakfast to go. The host was very friendly and was nice enough to explain to a southerner like me what Goetta is. If you've never had it, at least try to it to say you did. I enjoyed the biscuits and gravy.

My favorite breakfast restaurant in Northern Kentucky. Don't forget to try a steak sandwich for lunch and their famous fried chicken for dinner time. Excellent Banquet & events Room for small meetings and gatherings. Convenient and easy to locate on Dixie Highway in Erlanger. Ask for Bobby, Ed, or Linda…my favorite servers. Cheers & enjoy!

We decided to try this place due to the glowing reviews. My husband ordered the fried chicken with coleslaw and a salad. I ordered the salmon with a salad and fruit cup. You have to wait 20 extra minutes if you order the fried chicken. They give you a lot of chicken but it has a lot of breading on... More

This is one of the local restaurants that we go to. Always a good meal, food is good, atmosphere good, service good. The only place that we eat at that we order desert as their pie reminds you of home cooked. I always order the chocolate meringue pie and wife does most of the time, sometimes she mixes something else... More

Servers / cashiers great but male manager needs customer training. He is very brash and talks so loud very annoying. Comes across as "his way or hit the highway"

Our daughter and son in law had heard of this restaurant and it was as good as they had heard. Appetizers of fried catfish and goetta nachos were very tasty. The nachos were unusual but real good. We all enjoyed our meals. Both breakfast plates (served all day) were large and reported to be quite good. The gravy actually had... More

I have been here many times so I took my wife, daughter and grandson to lunch. Once again our food was good and there was more than we could eat. I usually go for breakfast because they are one of the best breakfast restaurants in the area.

Good for what it is, a old style, home cooked restaurant. I had the ribeye my wife had the baked cod. We both enjoyed our meals. The green beans were good, the spinach was amazing. We'll be back for sure.

The food is always hot, fresh, and good. The service is excellent and the price is very reasonable. The fresh baked pies are so good. The fried chicken is well worth the wait.
