The Cottage Hotel is a great place for a beer and a burger. On the weekends, they have local bands and it's a lot of fun. Check out the cool cooler (no pun intended)...you'll see it right when you walk in. Parking is a little scarce, but it's worth finding a spot.

Never occurred to me to go to The Cottage for dinner. Great place to catch a game with friends and pound some beers. But food? So we went on the recommendation of some friends and were glad we did. Nice selection of specialty drinks and tavern food. More than the obligatory wings and burgers. Service was great. We ate outside.... More

Stopped in for a beer. Stayed for what I thought would be bar food. Turned out to be so much more and so much better. Be sure to try the sweet onion bison burger. The menu is full of surprises like that. You'll have to come back.

My wife and I dined with another couple last night at the Cottage Hotel. We arrived around 8 PM and waited just a couple of minutes to be seated. They had two specials, one of which was prime rib and they ran out of that before we ordered. The second was a shrimp and haddock creole dish which 3 out... More

My wife and I have been on a mission for the best burger in Rochester and the best burger under $10. At $9, this burger wins both categories! We've come here a few times now and their food is amazing! Tonight, my father in law and I ordered the the slayer burger. Which is prime rib, pulled pork, bacon, bbq... More

Though the interior is nothing to write home about, this place used to be a solid bet for a good gastropub-esque meal. However, last time we visited was an absolute mess. Though the food was delicious as usual, nothing else went right. Waitress did not know the answers to simple menu questions and never mentioned the specials. Took over 20... More

We have been here several times for both lunch and dinner. The food is okay. The biggest issue is there are sewer problems and the place smells awful! The service is always very slow.

Good food, same old atmosphere. Had a great fresh fish fry for about $12. Two others had a steak "special". Our mistake was not asking why it was "special" ... 2 steaks for $72 seemed very extreme for the Cottage Hotel!!! Better ask what's so special so you won't get the shock with your bill.
