“The Cotton Gin: Fantastic food and lodging in Fredricksburg”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2008

My wife and I found The Cotton Gin on the internet, and it looked nice enough, so we decided to make it our honeymoon destination. When we got there, it was so much more than we expected! The cabin was excellent (we stayed in the Guadalupe) and the pictures don't do it justice. It rained that night, and the sound on the tin roof lulled us to sleep.

The next day, we ate at the buffet at the restaurant , with the though of "ok, hotel food, better than fast food," but we were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. The buffet was the highest quality you can have and still call it a "buffet". We should have known how good it would be when the parking lot was full!

Dinner was even better. I really can't rave enough about the quality of the food that was served. While a bit pricey, it was well worth it. I have spent more here in Houston on much worse.

The grounds of the place were immaculate, the food was delicious, and Fredericksburg is ideally located for a vacation getaway.

I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a quality bed and breakfast, not to mention a top class restaurant.

“A Great Place to Dine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2008

A wonderful experience - we will definitely see you on our next trip back. Would also like to comment on our waitress, Elizabeth, she was so attentive and made sure that we were well taken care of. Wonderful menu - a delightful change from the norm of most restaurants. Definitely recommend the Escargot. Thanks again !

“World's best Cosmopolitan”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2008

The coconut shrimp and cap steak were excellent. My husband and I really enjoyed the great wait staff. This is truely a hard thing to find nowadays! The waitress was very informed about all of the dishes and seemed genuinely happy to be working there. But the Austin Cosmopolitan was the best drink I have EVER had!!!!

“Where to eat in Fredericksburg,Tx.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2008

Fredericksburg, Texas is a great destination in the hill country and finding a wonderful place like the Cotton Gin Restaurant is a wonderful plus.The food is prepared with the freshest ingredients , the portions are generous ,and the service is as good it can get. I have been there twice with family and friends from Houston to New Jersey and never disappointed with anything from the salads, to entrees,to the desserts,you can't find a better place to eat.
