Rated 4 out of 5 by Only negative was that we had to wait so long for food. We went for the fried chicken because it is special on Tuesday, but we waited over 1/2 hour for it. Was disappointed because we brought friends who hadn't eaten there before and they were a little upset that it took so long. Mar 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by We always enjoy our experience at Colonial Cottage, but this time it was one of the best ever. We had a great waitress and the food was excellent. I ordered my usual, the blackened chicken salad and my husband got the sirloin steak, something he had never ordered before. It was one of the best steaks we have ever eaten. He said it will be hard to go there and not get that steak every time. We ordered my daughter a kid's cheeseburger and fries which also never disappoints. Just great food, great service and always and great experience! Mar 26, 2014

During The Great Depression, a local tobacco warehouse in Erlanger, Kentucky was bustling with farmers. In 1933, resident Clara Rich saw an opportunity to fullfill her dream and founded a restaurant to feed the community. The Colonial Cottage opened to serve up home cooking with an affordable price.Decades later, the restaurant has gracefully withstood the test of time. While the names and faces have changed, The Cottage remains true to the original mission by offering great food at a fair price for nearly 80 years.The Colonial Cottage is known regionally for its Breakfast Omelettes and Homemade Cream Pies. It also has a dedicated following for all things goetta: goetta & eggs, goetta nachos, goetta burger, goetta grilled cheese...even goetta desserts!Although it is popular for offering breakfast all day, The Cottage has an extensive menu and serves up Daily Specials on a rotating basis. Some of the favorites include: fried chicken, prime rib, meat loaf, salmon croquettes and cottage ham. Vegetarian entrées are among the newest creations from the kitchen.
