This is the one place in Crystal Lake where you can always be sure the Cubs game is on ... unless it's the Bulls, Bears or Blackhawks. Despite this, though, the Cottage isn't really a sports bar. Building contractors meet here during the day and area professionals hang after work. Other locals of all ages pepper the tables and bar stools throughout the day. In keeping with low-brow draft brews like Bud and Red Dog, the cuisine is typical bar fare. Thin-crust pizza is a house specialty.
