Family affordable place. Very good good, wonderful staff. You can eat everyday there and try something new. Wonderful option when traveling with kids. Nice portions and very good flavor.

A visit to the Cottage Cafe for dinner is always one of the high points of our yearly Bethany Beach trips, and this year was no different. We and our girls (and a number of friends) had a terrific meal at the Cottage Cafe.

Have been a visitor for years! We come down 3 times a year and NEVER miss a chance to stop! FOOD/STAFF/QUALITY/VALUE are here in spades....!

While on vacation in Bethany last week, we ate at this restaurant twice because the food was so good. The shrimp and crab were wonderful and my husband said the pot roast was the best he ever had. You can't make reservations, but you can call ahead a half hour so your name is on the list, which can cut down on your wait time. Servers were on the ball and friendly.

This place is a definite come back. The food was awesome. Service excellent and nice atmosphere. Didn't take too long to get a seat although the place was bopping. The prices were totally reasonable. Nice gem.

Charming restaurant with excellent service and great food. The salmon and the scallops were delicious. Nice bar area or choice of tables and booths.

Absolutely amazing food and perfect service. Go there, you won't be disappointed!

This place is simply awesome. Great food and super awesome service. This was our first time there but it won't be out last.

We decided to have out anniversary dinner at Cottage Cafe, but had never been there before. My husband had the oyster special and I had the scallops, which we shared. Our dinners were delicious!! To top off the great meal, we had the BEST waiter Laric!! Thank you!! Highly recommend!

Haven't been for a while. Has been renovated. Booths very comfortable. Stopped by for lunch. Great cream of broccoli and potato soup. Had a great prime rib cheese steak sub. We also had a chicken sandwich...huge chicken breast. All very good. And last but not least, the server was very friendly and efficient.

We went to this restaurant around Christmas time. They have remodeled and put in large, very comfortable booths. The booths afford a lot of privacy for the patrons. Before the reno, it was kind of a fish bowl affect. Lovely now. We both ordered the steamed shrimp. Always excellent, very well done and delicious. I got a cup of crab soup and my daughter ordered the dune fries. Everything was very tasty. Too full for dessert. Will visit again soon. Thanks Cottage!!

December 2018

We loved our dinner at the Cottage Cafe. I enjoyed the fried chicken with creamed spinach & black beans and rice (so good!). My husband enjoyed the ribs & fries. Our server, Ellen, was attentive & friendly. All in all, a great night!

November 2018

We were there on their Monday night special. We tried Smoked bacon wrapped scallops and it was delicious. Our server , Sachin was very helpful and took good care of us throughout our meal. would happily recommend to other.

Temporarily Closing

 Cottage Cafe Logo

March 30th, 2020

Dear Loyal Guests of The Cottage Cafe,

We have decided for the safety of our team members and guests to temporarily close The Cottage Cafe.

Our number one priority has always been the welfare of our team members. We chose to stay open over the last several weeks to keep as many people fully employed as possible and to continue to serve members of the community and their families. We are glad we were able to do this. With the recent legislation passed by the Federal Government, and with the Coronavirus affecting our area more and more, we decided it was in everyone’s best interest to temporarily close the Restaurant.

Our hope is to re open by May 1st. As we get closer to this date, we will evaluate the circumstances and keep everyone up to date on whether this date is feasible or whether we will need to make changes.

We thank all of our team members for all of their hard work during these challenging times and we of course thank all of our wonderful guests who have supported us throughout the years and especially over the last several weeks.

Stay Safe and we’ll see you soon!
