My husband and I just had a great dinner. We started with cream of crab soup and coconut shrimp - perfectly prepared. Then on to the tender and flavorful pot roast with real mashed potatoes and the best creamed spinach that I have had in quite a while. My husband had the bacon-wrapped scallops (Thank you, Josh) and crisp fresh... More

If you are looking for a beach restaurant that you can take the family to this Cafe will suffice. If you are looking for a place where food quality is not as important as a varied menu with broad appeal then this place will suffice. I would refer to this as "Diner food" were it not a disservice to the... More

I had lunch here during a work related meeting. I was pleased with the food I received. The first time I ate here was for a breakfast buffet and I wasn't impressed so I had decided I wouldn't come back. Since I didn't have a choice on the meeting location I was reluctant. The service needs a little work, but... More

Ellen and Casey were TOTALLY AWESOME! They recommended the cream of crab soup and it was absolutely scrumptious! The BEST I've ever tasted! They suggested one of the Friday night specials- the fish fry and it was phenomenal! Crispy battered cod that had a hint of sweetness! Loved every bite! And the steamed broccoli was delicious! Wonderfully seasoned! Thank you... More

A full bar during happy hour is usually a good sign. *mostly locals, diverse group of people *good drinks *good food, ample portions *great staff The dining room was busy, but we only went to the bar. Well designed bar, with tv’s, high top tables and bar seats. Bartenders were busy and efficient, worked well together, attentive, engaging and happy.... More

We have dined at the Cottage Cafe on numerous occasions and have always had a great meal for a great value. The service is always good, and tonight (2/17/2017) the service far exceeded our previous experiences. Our server, Chantal was exceptionally pleasant and what impressed us most was her timing in addition to her charm. The atmosphere was fun tonight... More

Ventured to Bethany on a Sunday afternoon to try something different (other than the Rehoboth mainstays) and enjoyed our meal at the Cottage Cafe. I admit, I'd never make this trip IN season due to traffic... but glad we did. It's always nice to try new places. There is a SUNDAY Brunch Buffet that we just missed but definitely want... More
