We host two events a year at the hotel and all our players eat most of their meals at Cortland's. The food is as home cooked as you can get! Great verity and always hot and fresh. Great chef, you got to try it!

I really liked this restaurant. The free breakfast is large and awesome. If you are there for use of their ballroom areas for business they will even deliver your order to you at the venue. Goo service!

Larry was our server and too very good care of us. For appetizers we had fried green tomatos and a beef and potato soup, both were very good.

Larry was our server at Cortlands. He was one of the best servers I've ever had. He went above and beyond for us while we were there. Our drinks never went empty, we didn't have to wait long for anything and our order was perfect the first time!

Hello, We would like to commend Larry for his OUTSTANDING service in the dining room for our SECOND year in a row as we head toward our summer vacation on the Outer Banks. He is a true Southern gentleman who is attentive to the customer's every need, uniquely customizing his service to each person's needs. We've been amazed both times,... More
