We regret that we are discontinuing our take out program. We will stay closed as long as the state mandate is in place. We are focusing our efforts to reopen strong and ready to serve all our loyal customers.

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.

We also offer a full dinner menu and outside cafe (during the summer months). You don't need reservations to stop in for some great  food and drink, so join us for lunch or dinner.
