The menu offered numerous and varied selections. This is a small mom & pop type establishment, and it would be difficult to beat their food. Visited more than once on my last trip. The restaurant is quaint & clean. The service is pleasant & fast....More

I was in this restaurant 45 minutes and I saw my waitress, Deborah, three times: to order, when she dropped off my coffee and when she dropped off my meal. Even though I sat at the counter six feet from the cash register she ignored...More

a sister's birthday is coming up. She's going down to Dennisport for a few days. Would love to get her a gift certificate to Red Cottage. Would have to do it online. Can that be done? Thanks! ps: if it can be done what is the average check? [want to do a dinner one also]
