“Don't Bother for Breakfast!”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

We were a fairly large group (approx. 20) but had reserved Sunday Brunch days earlier. It took more than 20 minutes before we got the waitress to wander by and she then took our orders.

An hour later we finally got the coffees and waters that everyone ordered, then SLOWLY the breakfast orders began to appear. All mixed up as to who ordered what, orders were wrong, most did not include the promised sausage or bacon. We had to make a special point of getting the toast produced even though everything was ordered at the same time, and this was all just plunked on the table in baskets for all to pick from.

Someone is not getting the message!

Trying to get cream, sugar, butter and spreads was agonizing and most of the first few of the crowd were long through with their meals before the last were presented. Two of our group never did get served and opted for take-out portions just so we could get out of there.

No apology or any explanation from the manager or wait staff, so after 2 hours we couldn't wait to leave. Of course it took a while to get the bills organized (go figure) even though we had arranged to have everyone on the same bill be noted by name -- it should have been easy.

Never going back again under any circumstances in spite of the fact that the atmosphere is really good and they even had a 3-man live band playing throughout the ordeal.

This group does not deserve to remain in business, especially given some of the other reviews I have looked at.

“Don't Rush”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

The atmosphere and service is fine, particularly on a cool Friday evening, with the breezes blowing, sitting in a lovely outside space listening to the band. If you'd like, come in for a drink or two and enjoy the music, but don't come for the food. The prices are neither expensive nor inexpensive. The entrees are in the low 20's and the salads and sandwiches are in the high single and low double digits. Our party of six had the Roast Beef (chewy), Caesar Salad (too much dressing), Chicken Wings (ok), and Burgers (mediocre). With so many restaurants in Lake Worth to choose from, we might suggest giving another spot a chance.

“Crappy place”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

I live in lake worth and go downtown all the time. I ben by the cottage a few times but never bothered to stop in. I finally decided to go in and was ready to order the server was fairly prompt when I gave the signal to have the server come over. I ordered the calimari salad and ordered a rum and coke the glass was small amd the drink was stronger than it should be (overpoured) thee calamari salad was bland amd I observed the staff just nulling around. I aaked my server for the check it took 10 minutes for it to come to the table and when I put the check back on the table it took 25 minutes for him to collect it. The staff seem like they could care less abput the coustomers and more about money. Avoid the place not very good and overpriced

“Great atmosphere and great time on Sunday nights!”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

My review is based mainly on the atmosphere and their Sunday night drag show. If you want a place to sit outside and relax with your friends on a nice night, this place is great. The outdoor area if very nice, it has covered areas in cases of rain, and the seating is loungy and comfortable (the inside is nice too, but we never sit in there). The food is good but I wouldn't go just for the food. They have live music on occasion and on Sunday night they have a drag show with a DJ and it's a great time. It gets pretty crowded, but in a good way--not too crowded.
