Welcome to The Cottage Bar & Restaurant

A Grand Rapids tradition since 1927, we are proud to be the oldest operating bar and restaurant downtown. Known for our casual charm and down to earth atmosphere, we're famous for having the city's best burgers, and three different styles of award winning chili.

The Cottage Burger was recently voted best burger in Michigan by USA Today.

Thank you to the Grand Rapids community for all your support during the coronavirus pandemic quarantine. The Cottage reopened on February 2, operating at 25% capacity, per state regulations. Our staff is working to utilize all precautionary procedures to ensure a safe and enjoyable atmosphere. We are taking this one day at a time, as the landscape continues to change seemingly every moment. We have missed all of you and it's good to be back at the Cottage even under the current limitations.
