Went with group from church & they handled us all with speed & accuracy. Good food - no complaints from anyone. My favorite was the hot slaw! (Cabbage with a hot bacon dressing). YUM!

Enjoyed a Sunday morning stop for breakfast with fresh pecan pancakes! Outstanding!! Service was friendly and timely. Great stop. Great for families AND separate dining room for groups.

First, the menu is southern comfort food whether its breakfast, soups, sandwiches, dinners, etc. and they have daily specials to... More

After a day at the Ark and Creation Museum, we were hungry for some good home cooked food. We picked the right spot to eat supper. My husband had meat loaf with creamed potatoes and soup and I had a chef salad. Our friends had beef tips over noodles. We left with our plates clean so I guess that is... More

Ok...I am a Canadian ordering fried chicken in Kentucky so my pedigree is a bit questionable but the four piece chicken dinner was the best fried chicken I have ever had. They tell you right on the menu to expect a 20 minute wait because they don't precook any but it is well worth waiting every minute. So fresh, so... More

It is becoming an annual event for me to travel to northern Kentucky to visit with friends. The trip wouldn't be complete without stopping at the Colonial Cottage for goetta. This German dish can't be found where I live.

We were looking for an establishment with local fare. The food is fantastic. There was a bit of a wait because they are popular but well worth it. Best Guetta ever!
