“Great food but a little bit of a wait.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We used to eat here when it was "The Era". A group of us were at The Cottage over Memorial Day weekend for their Friday Fish Fry. Some of the best perch I have ever eaten. There are numerous sides to pick from. I had coleslaw and haystack fried onions. Others had potato pancakes, sweet potato fries, onion rings and hash brown. It was all delicious. We did have quite a wait roughly an hour and a half. The wait staff was very apologetic about the wait saying every order is cooked to order and nothing is prepared ahead of time. The wait was worth it as everyone raved about the food. Also on the menu is home made pizza from scratch. Next time we go we will definitely try that.

“Step above most Eagle River Restaurants”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2014

The Cottage has only been operating since October 2013. They are relatively new but oh so good, you gotta try them. We went there for the Friday Perch Dinner. They offered it two ways: fried or broiled. My hub ate fried and I had broiled. It only costs $11.99 all you can eat. The sides were 2 of either french fries, onion rings, potato pancakes, hash browns, german potato salad or baked beans, broccoli, or green beans. The German potato salad was to die for and the tarter sauce I could have drank it. OMG Hub had hash browns and fried fish. He was very pleased. We can't wait for our next visit cause I want to try more of the sides. They also have a bar area. The bathroom were very clean as well as the whole restaurant. It was a very pleasant experience with personable waitress and owner.
