My husband and I came here for lunch on a Friday. Absolutely no one else in the dining room the entire time, which I can see why. A few things were poor: Our drinks (sodas) tasted weak and just, odd. The waitress fixed them but they still tasted funky. My husband is a Chef and can definitely tell frozen food... More

My work is pretty close to the restaurant and I really like to have lunch here when I don't bring food for lunch! Good food and nice people! The Sherry Chicken is delicious! 😋

The Cottage is mainly what I'd call a local watering hole. It's quite dark inside, and the food is mainly what I'd call pub food: burgers, crab cakes, chicken wings, etc. Good selection of beer, and it's one of the few places in town where you can carry out a six-pack instead of a case.

I recently turned 21 and we went to the cottage with a friend from out of town and the drinks here are the best I've experienced so far and they're decently priced! I had a Tight Snatch which was a great fruity drink that I would recommend. Can't wait to go back!

This was recommended by the hotel, but it wasn't very good. It is a family style restaurant with bare minimum tables and atmosphere. I am sure others have come here from the locals for years. there is a pub in the front, but we are not drinkers. I had a steak and cheese and the wife had a chicken and... More

Arrived at our local Chambersburg hotel and was asked if we had dinner plans. I asked for a recommendation and was told "The Cottage". Clerk said that their Haddock was the best she's ever eaten. We went but didn't have the haddock - we both had dry-rub ribs. And they were excellent! I had their tomato bisque soup. Mine was... More

The Cottage is a reliable spot for good home cooked food. It is not fancy but the food is fresh and tasty with ample portions. Don't be intimidated by the building. This is a local hangout which includes a bar in the front, and a restaurant and bottle shop in the back. Chicken wings are excellent, steaks are juicy, ribs... More

This local pub has great food. Truly. We've gone twice in the past month and sat on the bar side. Dominique was our friendly and very attentive waitress both visits. They have interesting beer choices on tap as well as on the menu. Last night all of the authentic German specials looked really good. My party of 3 cleaned their... More

Located in a residential neighborhood of the city on PA Route 316. A nice neighborhood Bar/ Restaurant. Just like I used to visit back in NorthEast Philly. Located in a plain building that is segmented into three parts, Bar, restaurant, and beer takeout shop. As I learned long ago- don't let a simple building turn you away - you can't... More
