I've been here multiple times, often when stopping at the Bluffton Farmer's Market. The Cottage was open for Topas and my dad and I decided to eat out side. Usually we go during lunch. The menu is small as it is a special menu. I ordered the BBQ chicken and corn bread and my dad got the fish tacos. I was worried about the portions and I didn't think it was going to be enough, but the portions were generous. The chicken was so tender and declicious and it went well with the corn bread too. The corn bread tasted more like a sweet cake and wasn't dry one bit like some corn bread I've had. I tried the fish tacos that my dad got and they were delicious too. If I wanted something lighter I would have definitely ordered those. Going back again, I would definitely try the fish tacos! One bite wasn't enough. Overall, I would definitely recommend you visit this cozy restaurant.

Loved sitting outside on the porch and watching people. Food was excellent. Great salads and sandwiches. Service was great too.
I had the salad of the day with garlic flatbread and shrimp, which was terrific.

Took out of town visitors there for lunch. Very small inside, although there are tables outside on the porch as well. We all had four different lunch entrees and sampled each others. They were all yummy! The salads were delicious! The desserts were to die for! Ambience was Southern charm and graciousness at its' finest!! Will definitely be back!
