It is a cozy, somewhat noisy restaurant with super comfort food. The day I was there they had all you care to eat fried chicken. The chicken was well seasoned and tasty. The wait staff work as a team and provide excellent service. This is a fun place to go for a good, solid meal.

As long as you know what you are getting into and that's what you want, you may want to try the Cottage Inn. This is a very simple small restaurant, vinyl table cloths with very simple country American food. Nothing fancy. But the service was excellent when I arrived with a friend of mine who's taste runs to classic home... More

An experience you don't want to miss! Was there for a convention and found by accident because we couldn't get to where we wanted to go because of the University football game. Home style cooking! Fried chicken was awesome, and mashed potatoes the same. Green beans disappointing because it was obvious came from a can, with all the other home... More

This place was very popular with the senior crowd. My kids loved the fish pond outside the cottage. Our party had Chicken strips, grilled cheese and the turkey special. Food was okay but very basic. The grilled cheese was processed cheese and my daughter who is 7 said, "I like real cheese sandwiches better." Our server was very friendly and... More

What a throwback to another time. Locals were coming in flocks. The food was great, inexpensive, and large portions. We went for dinner. Don't miss the mashed potatoes, string beans, salisbury steak and liver. The Derby Pie for dessert was great!

I came here at the recommendation of my hotel staff near the airport. Fried chicken was very good. It could have used a little more spice or salt in the batter but it was still good. The meat was moist. They have a great dessert selection. I had the chocolate cream pie. It has a nice meringue over the top.... More

This place was recommended by our hotel. Any place that has been around since 1929 and the locals eat at is worth making a visit. Very casual atmosphere and our server was knew the food and had a wonderful sense of humor. I opted to try frog legs (which came from championship jumpers our server told us) because I have... More

My visit to Cottage Inn did not start well. I arrived in separate cars with my wife, who arrived several minutes before I did. The server's first words to me were "I don't like you. You don't get a menu." Believing that she was kidding, I laughed. She brought me my menu, but never made me feel comfortable. She glared... More

Home style cooking. Casual atmosphere. Friendly service. Very reasonable prices. I love fried chicken, and this is GOOD fried chicken. Very enjoyable. Felt like a lot of locals or regulars eat there. Not a trendy spot, but comfortable. If they served beer or liquor I might have given this 5 stars.
