Every Monday night is Chicken Fried Steak night...prepared and fried to a golden brown coating and a tender steak. The two sides I enjoyed were mash potatoes and corn. The side salad I had was great as was the the 1000's Islands dressing. The rolls served are some of the best in town. Our server was professional and very attentive... More

The staff was very friendly, prompt and attentive. We went on a Thursday. The special was supposed to be Chicken Spaghetti, but it was sold out. I was disappointed about that, but it helped me with the tough decision between Chicken and Dumplings and Chicken Spaghetti. I was disappointed with the Chicken and Dumplings. It was primarily broth with very... More

For a place that seems to cater to the elderly, I expected hospital type food. I had the fish tacos and my mom had a burger. My tacos were smothered in pico de gallo, which I had asked them to leave off. The pico juices left behind just enough of a hint of taste to make the tacos tasty. Who... More

The food, service and atmosphere were all perfect. It takes a special place for me to classify as perfect, but this café is it. The server was exceptional, the food tasty and good portions. Our drink glasses were never empty and she always checked on how our food tasted. The appetizer, fried green tomatoes were great.

When will you want good, home-like, country cooking this is the place to visit. What I liked about this location was the layout of the inside of the restaurant. It had a raised floor for the booths, which my kids really liked. As always, the service was great and everything had a relaxed feel.

I like Cotton Patch, and for a chain restaurant, it is good downhome country cooking for a reasonable price. I recently ate there with my boys. I had the pot roast with corn and mashed potatoes and it was good. Not write home to mother about, but good. The boys had chicken strips and I tried one of those as... More

Five family members and I met here for a Monday night dinner. Four members ordered chicken fried steak and were pleased with their meal, however my niece ordered the chicken and dumplings and she said they were gummy and flavorless. I ordered the tortilla soup which had to be the worst stuff I have ever tried to eat in my... More
