The Original Cottage Inn
The Original Cottage Inn restaurant opened its doors at 512 East William, Ann Arbor in 1948. This restaurant has had the distinction of being the first restaurant in Ann Arbor to serve pizza. The current ownership acquired the building at 512 E. William in 1961 and it remains the company's flagship today. The restaurant's first major expansion took place in 1975. The restaurant was remodeled again in 1980 and 1987. In 1993, a major renovation of the restaurant was done to include the second floor, which increased the seat capacity. This renovation also provided banquet room facilities. The restaurant offers a diverse menu of Italian and Greek dishes as well as pizzas.
I love Cottage Inn but this last experience I had was table. I ordered Pinot Noir and then receive a white wine which is clearly Pinot Grigio but the server tells me that I'm wrong and it is Pinot Noir.....don't think so. The pizza was delicious as always but the pasta seemed a little bit cold and kind of on the premade side, my date didn't enjoy it very much. Overall I think I'll stick to cottage inn's delivery service, but no more beets on the greek salad, so sad!
The best pizza I've ever had! Which is very hard for an Ohioan to write. And just to quantify that, I've yet to visit Chicago or NYC to try their pizza, but am looking forward to doing so. I ate at the downtown location with a friend for lunch. We started with a salad which was big, delicious and lots of things in it. Then shared a pizza(pepperoni and sausage I believe) which was to die for! Not being real familiar with the company I'll say just in case its not the standard that it was a rectangular deep dish like pizza.
I was there on sweetest day with my girlfriend I ordered the meat sampler as i usually do. When it came it was over cooked. I was not offered another one or anything by the waitress i understand it was a home u/m football game day but it was roughly 6:00 and the place was not that busy . I fealt it was poor business. I eat there all the time and never had a bad experience like this
