Great food and great service! It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon and we were able to take advantage of the outdoor seating! Great atmosphere, can’t wait until our next visit back!

The Cottage is lovely - the help is great, the food is delicious, and the atmosphere is special. I've been there for 3 different occasions - and they all were excellent. Try it, you'll love it.
