We were looking for breakfast but they only have Brunch on Sunday, so we waited until they opened and had an early lunch. Shared a Hemmingway (salad with Tuna) and half pound of shrimp and each had $ 2.50 Miller Lite Pints. Great "Happy Hour" lunch in Bethany Beach.

After reading several favorable reviews, my wife and I went here for dinner. We were very disappointed and found the food very bland and poorly presented. It's the kind of food you'd expect from a hospital cafeteria. I recognize that this place is not fine dining but find that it compares very poorly with other local restaurants in this mid-range class. We are baffled by how many good reviews they get. The clientele is mostly elderly people who seem to have low expectations for their dining experience. We will not go again and would not recommend it to anyone.

We always enjoy the second season offerings at the Cottage Cafe. Tonight, we enjoyed the prime rib. Nineteen dollars for a 12-ounce cut of beef with two sides. The little muffins were delicious, as usual.

We arrived around 4:30, which worked out great as we did not have to wait for a seat. When we left st 5:40, people were waiting to be seated.

Our waitress, Jodie, was wonderful. She was very attentive and took excellent care of us. When we go back, which we will, we will definitely ask for Jodie.

We have been coming to Cottage Cafe for nearly 30 years on each of our trips to the beach. We love it! I enjoy the catch of the day or the floppin' flounder. Hubby loves the fried oysters or stuffed flounder. If you are in the mood for comfort food their meatloaf or pot roast are for you - the portions are huge! If you want something light the Fire and Ice salad is really good and has become my fav (similar to a buffalo chx wing salad you get at many places). This one has lettuce wedges, bacon, bleu cheese crumbles and bleu cheese dressing. It has some heat and is so tasty!
