Great food, generous portions.
Great food, generous portions.
The restaurant accommodated our request to sit on the main floor.
Our waiter wanted to take our order before our entire party had arrived. We only had 5 people in our party.
We had to ask another waiter for Parmesan cheese as it was not on the table nor was it offered, which we thought
strange, considering it was an Italian restaurant.
However, our waiter did keep our drinks and bread basket refilled, which we appreciated.
The Orginal Cottage Inn continues to be our favorite restaurant in Ann Arbor.

We went to The Original Cottage
We went to The Original Cottage Inn for Easter brunch. Food was great. Seating was comfortable and service was top notch. I would go again and recommend to a friend as well.

The Original Cottage Inn was a great place to celebrate U of M graduation. The location has charm and character - great ambience. Even though the restaurant was full, it wasn't too noisy. The menu had a great selection to choose from and everyone enjoyed their meals. The staff and waitress were friendly and attentive. It was a great family dinner.

My Pleasant Experience
My friend and I had a very pleasant time at your brunch. The food was excellent and the service was commendable. We thought the ambience was conducive to good conversation and the booth was a comfortable setting for our time there. I'd highly recommend it to any of my acquaintances.

My kids took me to The Original Cottage Inn for Mothers Day. I have been a fan for almost 30 years and this restaurant continues to please. The dinner salad was a hearty combination of greens and veg. We were all happy with our entrees, bbut the Chicken Marsala stood out as the favorite. Very happy to have returned to an Ann Arbor mainstay, and to see that it is still a gem.

We had a lot of fun! And before arriving we didn't know kids eat free on Mondays, so that was a nice surprise!

Can't Beat the Original!
I live in Toledo, so trips to Ann Arbor normally involve a visit to a local restaurant. The original Cottage Inn is an absolute gem. The food is amazing, the restaurant interior is fantastic and memorable, and the staff will bend over backward for you.

It's a very nice restaurant for the whole family. Everything was fresh and delicious. I would love to come back to try others dishes.

Nice spot on campus
Nothing too fancy but very enjoyable. Food is very good, atmosphere of comfortable / casual, service was very very friendly. Food is pretty standard Italian fare but very good. Its a nice spot to try if you're a new U Mich parent looking for an good, easy meal in the chaos of orientation or drop off.

gluten free friendly
The Original Cottage Inn has the best - and I mean The Best - gluten free pizza ever. I live in Pennsylvania and would gladly take a job waitressing at the Cottage Inn just so I could be near that pizza. My family can vouch for this. Thank you Cottage Inn!!

Good deal for a Sunday dinner
I don't often visit the Cottage Inn because I feel the quality has been less than stellar. However, with the large salad and 6 PC pizza for 2 valued at 21.00 as well as the happy hour specials, I will be back. Plus our server was kind and attentive which made our experience even better.

Just what you want.
The Cottage Inn has been a go to place for me for 30+ years. Solid food, good wines, good service. The italian food is what you expect. I have always had a good home cooked meal there. The service is usually from a young not to experienced staff but always energetic. Good place to meet friends and have a nice dinner with out breaking the bank.

family dinner for 5
Our family visited The Cottage Inn for the second time. I was very pleased to see so many gluten-free options. I ordered the gluten-free pizza and it was delicious. All dinner portions were ample (enough for a meal and a half) with fresh-tasting ingredients. I was also delighted to get a reservation at the last minute on a very busy weekend. We were seated upstairs and we noticed right away that the area felt drafty and a little cold. We mentioned it to the server but were not given another table option (there were other open tables but they could have been reserved). Once everyone was seated, it did warm up and ultimately did not negatively affect our experience. All in all, we will definitely come back to this neighborhood gem!

Outstanding as Usual
Been going to Cottage Inn since college and now it's become the kids favorite Ann Arbor location. Pizza was excellent as usual and the waiter was excellent.

$5 entrees great way to try dishes!
First, I love that the Original Cottage Inn has stayed intact as a full service restaurant with an extensive menu. I usually order the same thing when I eat here, so I was happy to see the $5 entree promotion for their 65th anniversary this week. It was a great way for the family and I to try other dishes, and everything was delicious! Chase, our server, he was very attentive, upbeat and made suggestions and overall gave great service!
We'll be back again!

the pizza is excellent but so are the entrees and the lunch buffet is one of the best deals in town.

Its Original for a reason
Six of us for a Sunday dinner. Nice corner table. Loved the pepperoni bread appetizers. Server was very attentive. We ordered chicken dinner, salmon, chicken marsala, lasagna and a reuben. Food was great. Not as expensive as one would expect. (PS - Sunday parking downtown is FREE). Reservations online worked great also, was easier than calling.

It was very busy, but we got right in with our Open Table Reservation. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The food was very good, and they had one of may favorite Michigan beers. Additionally, we had a bit of a time-crunch, and despite being busy, they got us out in plenty of time.

Saturday Night Dinner
The service was very good and very attentive. Was seated promptly and the waiter anticipated re-filling water glasses, providing more bread, follow up with the food oreparation, etc. Food was surprisingly good. Several of our party had entrees e.g. chicken marsala or chicken parmesan and it was surprisingly good and prices resonable. I wasn't expecting this at a restauarant that I associate with pizza. Will definitely return!

Had my 22nd birthday dinner with some friends. Had a great time - half off wine on Thursday! Loved the crab-cake sandwich!

Liked Original Cottage Inn
Four people out including one birthday. Everyone can get what they want since there is an extensive menu. All food was good and we went away full.
