Where It All Began
The story of The Cotton Gin Café began in 2001 in Prosper, TX. At the time, the restaurant was founded as a much-needed oasis for the town’s 3,000 residents to find community over delicious homestyle meals. But as Prosper began growing rapidly, The Cotton Gin was purchased in 2015 by the Pettis family, who dreamed of expanding the establishment alongside the town, while still maintaining the charm and nostalgia that had made it a local staple.
As a result, in 2017, The Gin was opened right next door. This new addition would serve as the perfect place for friends and family to get together and enjoy cold beer, craft cocktails, and live outdoor music. The once-small town of Prosper has continued to grow, and our separate facilities have since become one, but we at The Gin look forward to continuing to grow along with you. A lot has changed, but we have continued to preserve the same community values that we were built on twenty years ago!

Reviews & Recognition
Our family loves the Cotton Gin. Every time we come here we receive friendly service, good food and a chance to catch up with other people in Prosper. Sure, the line at the cash register can be long at times. But when you’re at a popular place, expect patrons to be there.
The Cotton Gin really is a unique experience that everyone should try, and then come back again and again.
Very deserving of a 5+ stars!! Love the food, bar and patio. Pricing is middle of the road so it makes for a good selection
We love the Gin as our go to date night spot. Friendly staff, good food, and relaxed atmosphere. It doesn’t get too loud in the dining room and always seems to be packed in the bar. We have been here a few nights where the staff and/or kitchen has been overwhelmed and both times received excellent communication. One night the host and manager on duty made sure to stop by to check on us. Would highly recommend.
