Loved it all! The charming cottage, we dined on the front porch. Our meals were delicious and our server was excellent. We had an early dinner, so the noise level was low.
Will visit again.
It was a perfect evening to enjoy our meal outside and so we did! The food was so delicious and the service was welcoming and great! Now one of our favorite restaurants!
Wonderful food and service.
Wonderful food & service. The owner was hospitable & friendly
The Cottage always presents very good meals and a nice selection of desserts. As usual Monica was excellent despite being quite busy.
First time at the Cottage and highly recommend 👍👍👍👍👍 will definitely be back on our next trip to Hilton Head!
Food was excellent. The crab and green tomato stack appetizer is an unusual pairing but the sauce pulls it together. It is so good that we order it every time we go. The special New York strip with blue cheese was thoroughly enjoyed by two members in our group. Service was excellent. Tiffany's timing is perfect. She knows exactly what we need when we need it. We had a great time. We'll be back.
Had friends in town and tried this at the last minute. Wonderful find, great food, wonderful waitress with a mischievous sense of humor. Will most definitely be back.
Thank you for a wonderful evening!
CJ was outstanding as was the rest of our service that night.
Great dinner. Fun entertainment. Fantastic service from Monica.
Food was delicious and the service was great! My only issue is and has always been space. It is hard not to listen to other diners' dinner conversations or not have them listening to yours when you are only a foot away. It can feel a little intrusive. It is a small restaurant and that is part of its charm. If the space doesn't bother you it is a fabulous place to eat.
The Cottage always has great food. This was probably my 8th visit there and all were great until last Saturday. Everyone in our group of 4 had wonderful meals - blackened mahi mahi, jambalaya, and liver and onions. Mine was disappointing - I branched out from my usual choices and tried the Chicken and Waffle. The chicken was undercooked and the waffle was black on the bottom. I sent it back and they redid it which was fine. I am amazed that they served a burnt waffle in the first place. I ended up taking most of it home since everyone in our party were almost finished by the time I got my food. My maple syrup soaked waffle did not reheat well so I feel like I wasted my money on that meal. Next time I will go back to my favorite - fish tacos.
Food was fabulous and gourmet. Waittress was a true professional. Food a good value. Drinks and deserts desserts pricey.
Sadly, we had a bad experience. The food just wasn't worth the cost. We were a party of 6 and most were disappointed. I've eaten there many times and always been happy. Probably won't be returning.
Too loud, too cramped, our dinners came out at different times. At least 5 minutes apart from each other. My husband's dinner was missing ingredients noted on the menu.
Our group was excited to try the local seafood, especially the Shrimp & Grits. While it apparently has won some awards, we found it was way too heavy, especially with the bacon and onions (literally had to pile it up on the side of the plate to get to the shrimp/grits). No one finished their meal b/c it was overpowered by this. I got the sea bass special and had stomach issues afterwards. On the plus side, the wait staff was very friendly, we love the vibe, and would come back for coffee/breakfast to try it out.
Excellent server and service and food always good.
Always an exceptional meal! Our favorite restaurant in Hilton Head area.
Never disappointed in the food! Awesome menu variety and specials. I’m a repeat visitor (local resident).
Nice/cozy environment. Food is excellent. Nice selection of daily specials and fixed menu items.
The food was delicious as usual. This time 3 of us each ordered 2 appetizers and shared. One was better than the next! All wonderful!!
I took my friend to the Cottage for her birthday dinner and we had a wonderful time as usual.
Great people, great food, very accommodating
Chicken spongy. Did not feel well after dinner. Rushed us through meal.
Desserts were a bit disappointing. Hostess a bit abrupt. Server was outstanding!
Great food and great service. It's eclectic and definitely worth checking out.
The live entertainment was fabulous. The Fried Greg Tomato appetizer was amazing, along with the bread they serve with it. The entrees were ok, not great. Very good desserts.
The Cottage is a staple! Every time we have family down, this is where they want to go. Food is always outstanding, service is superior and you just can't beat the desserts. I love the addition of music on Friday and Saturday nights, fits in with the whole calhoun street vibe! This has been a favorite for many years and continues to bring us back. How do you go wrong with coconut cake and Monica!!
Great food and great customer service. The nut and seed crusted tuna was fabulous.
Fun place very nice staff
Great food. Go for the sampler, shrimp and grits, gumbo and jambalaya - very tasty. They also make their own desserts.
And outstanding little restaurant in old town Bluffton. The food was amazing, service was outstanding. We loved the jazz band outside. We sat outside on the porch and had a wonderful time. We will defiantly be going back. So many things on the menu looked good
Exceptional meal while being serenaded by a fabulous blues duo on the patio. A perfect birthday treat.
We had some friends that had not dined for dinner there and enjoyed it as well ! Friendly service , good food nice setting
A quaint nice place, but the food was average for the price. The server got two drink orders wrong, but she was friendly and willing to correct with a smile, which is the most important part of making mistakes in my mind. The stir fry lack flavor and the tuna covered in nuts and seeds was almost deep fat fried, not as light as we were expecting but still good.
The Cottage never disappoints on the quality of service or food. Desserts are a fantastic finish to their wonderful entrees. Save room for the sweets!
Pasta was very good and wine was also. Very quick!
The food was absolutely phenomenal!
Server Pirkey was great. A little too much sauce on my red fish..but always love the menu! Will be back!
Entrees, entertainment by Earl and desserts were fabulous!!!!
Adorable and super tasty! The only drawback is the place is small ... so it’s a tight fit. SO worth it!!! The service was outstanding and the chef nailed it. Enjoy this gem!
