I have been to place several times. They have good service and the kitchen is open very late for suburbia. The food options are good with a good cocktail and alcohol menu. A place to go late night...

A great local option that is family friendly and has space for larger or private parties. Varied menu with good choices and a solid kids menu too.

The Cottage is located in plaza so there is plenty of free off-street parking. On a Friday night parking can be a bit of a challenge, but you should be okay. Hope this helps.
