My husband and I had a great meal at The Cottage last night. Very friendly waitstaff and a huge menu selection. Five specials that weren't included on the evening's menu.
We had wasabi calamari that was plated on top of a fresh, crunchy salad of thinly sliced red pepper, string beans, cabbage and carrot. The appetizer was large and plentiful for $9. Honestly, was the first time I'd seen calamari without marinara on the side.
Our entrees were beautiful and delicious. Most were in the $18-27 range, with appetizers in the $7-10 range.
I had the vegetable crepes with goat cheese topped with grilled eggplant, fried green tomatoes and red pepper. There was a light and lovely balsamic and baby arugula salad on the side. My husband had the jambalaya special, with shrimp, and smoky andouille served around black beans and rice. He loved it, and we both took home large leftover portions. We were too full for one of the evening's 7 desserts, but one made to order option was a chocolate chip pecan iced cream sandwich with chocolate sauce and whipped cream. Oh man.

Not a place you have to dress up for, but also great for a birthday dinner... there was a party of 12 behind us who all got salads, and meals at the same moment. Impressive for a small place.

We'll definitely go back... they have a less expensive take out menu too... lobster rolls, sandwiches, etc.
