My husband and I were in Fredericksburg for the first time over the holidays. We enjoyed several dining experiences while there. None came close to topping our experience at Cotton Gin Restaurant. We shared a buffet on our first trip there. The Chicken Dumpling Soup was very delicious. The complimentary cookies were warm from the oven and tasty. We returned later in the week for dinner which consisted of steak, pork tenderloin and broil stuffed quail. Oh my! Beyond words delicious. We will include the Cotton Gin on our list of attractions for future visits.
