The Original Cottage Inn
Deep Dish Tuesdays: Every Tuesday, enjoy half off of our deep dish two-topping pizzas, dine in or carry out!
Wednesdays: $6 for ANY of our burgers, with fries!
Every Thursday enjoy half off wine!
We always stop at the cottage inn when we go to Ann Arbor. Their deep dish pizza is a must try!!! It's a little dated, but that adds to the charm, I like it but could see how someone may not. We have always had good service except for our latest trip, but I'm going to chalk that up to a server that seemed to have had a long night (we showed up at 9:30 with a party of 10). Overall I would recommend and we'll be back!
All around good - friendly, great food - would definitely go back
Went online to get a table for a birthday group and nothing was done by staff to make it a Special Occasion.
Best pizza in town; other good Italian cuisine too; inexpensive and therefore popular.
The Cottage Inn had great food and service. We took our friends out for a celebratory dinner. Would go again anytime we wanted great Italian comfort food.
We had 14 people and our event at U of M finished early. They seated us early and the service was excellent. Food was hot and delicious. Really enjoyed it.
Charming wait-staff, Athena!
Sentimental meal for Alumni!
AWESOME pizza....THE Original!
At server’s recommendation, had thin crust Cottage Inn special (sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms). Delicious! Kids enjoyed margherita pie and wife enjoyed veggie sandwich, which I thought was strikingly tasty. Very casual, but great service, food, and atmosphere.
Pizza and cranberry pecan salads were delish!! Would go back again-a cute place
Food was great! Waitstaff was outstanding! Price was right.
This visit to the Cottage Inn was not as satisfactory as usual. My chicken parmesan, while tasty, was slightly overcooked. My friend's chicken marsala was somewhat dry, even though the sauce was tasty. The clam chowder was very good, as usual. The others in our group enjoyed their choices. The portions were very large, with most of us taking home leftovers.
Service was very friendly, and a couple of minor mistakes were quickly and cheerfully corrected. Happy Hour at the bar included several good drinks and appetizers at bargain prices.
Our group meeting was well treated by the staff. Our appetizers came quickly and the main course of pizzas fully met our expectations.
Overall wonderful experience. Excellent gluten free pizza!!!
I always forget about this adorable place, hanging on to its Ann Arbor legacy for 60 odd years and still going strong. We had a lovely dinner after seeing two Cinetopia films and we could actually discuss them, not too loud like so many restaurants in town. Delicious salads and they have very nice gluten free pizza. Impeccable and friendly service. Will definitely be back.
We really enjoyed the food! It was great, Aso our wait person, Athena, was really nice!
If you are lucky Tyler S. will be your server , he is fantastic and made a great spot even better.
Staff took great care of us for family get-together after Navy commissioning ceremony. Thank you!
Service was poor. Most orders came out wrong or did not come at all. Food tasted ok but some of us ended up eating something we did not order because we got tired of sending the meals back.
Wonderful food and cozy ambiance! Always an Ann Arbor staple! Our waitress seemed new to waitressing and we had to ask her to clear old glasses and plates. My eggplant Parmesan was terrific
Delicious food, great atmosphere, excellent service. Consistently a great place to enjoy a meal.
We waited nearly an hour to get our drinks and bread. Nice waiter. He was overworked though and help was provided way too late to make up for it.
Our table was ready right away, and the food was really good. My daughter declared it the best pizza she had ever eaten. It was Saturday night, however, and they were extremely busy. A second waiter had to pitch in to eventually get us drink refills and bring our food, and even then there were a few minor details missed (I asked for dressing on the side, but it came on the salad). Everyone loved the food, though, and we will be back.
Was in Ann Arbor for a college visit and thought we would try a local favorite. Hostess spent an inordinate time on the phone before seating, did not even acknowledge that we were there. The place was mostly empty on a Tuesday night and they had a trivia game going on that attracted what seemed to be some local students. Place was dated but quaint. Menu looked good - the spinach lasagna was very good and almonds in it were an added touch that I've never had before. The blackened salmon caesar salad sounded really good but unfortunately it was an entire piece of salmon just placed on top of a salad, thought it would be cut up. Salmon tasted more like crab than salmon which made it even more disappointing. Probably should have ordered the pizza instead. Waiter service was fine and friendly.
The quality of the food on the buffet was as good as prior years. There were just fewer selections.
Good pizza and excellent service!
We always have a good time at Original Cottage Inn! The owner and all employees are friendly and attentive. They have enough space to accommodate groups as well as cozy booths for two or four.
It was great place to eat with a big group. The pizzas were delicious.
Quick meal on a work day. Always good, always predictable, a great place for a pizza, salad or a burger!
The waiter was great and we loved the pizza and wine!
The original Cottage Inn experience was awesome. From the minute we walked in the door until we left we felt like royalty. Jen the bartender and our server in the bar area was totally five stars
I thought it was a really great meal and brought back a lot of memories from when I went to school in A2. Now, the only thing missing are my 100 points for dining there!
Very good. Never got a bread basket which is usually served.
Best pizza in Ann Arbor!
Nice waiter. Tasty food
Always a stop for us when returning to Ann Arbor. The service was fantastic and the pizza was delicious.
Good family Italian restaurant. Casual dining. Big menu.
I usually really like the original Cottage Inn, but they were off this week. We had occasion to eat their twice and in both cases the waitstaff were unattentive to the point of having to reask for things. Even drink requests after ordering took quite a while to deliver. Two people at our same table ordered the vegetarian sampler. One got a sampler, the other just spinach lasagna.
Food was tasty and high quality. Best of Cottage Inn pizza was quite tasty, plentiful topping great crust.
Our waiter Randy was NOT attentive, however the manager took up his slack
We were seated right away, the wait staff was very friendly, and the food was delicious!
