Delicious

New items never tried before, courageous combinations proved delicious. Fois Gras was served on a hot stone to allow specific doneness - it was wonderful. Lobster and Corn concoction was outstanding.

Strawberries a little off and other breakfast sides just ok. Adequate meal but nothing exciting. Impressive restaurant improvements and enjoyed sitting outside in the morning to read the paper. Staff was very attentive.

This is the place for a great Sunday or holiday buffet experience. You'll see food choices rarely seen at any other buffet but this is all fresh and well presented especially if you want to eat healthy. The wait staff could be a little more on the ball but all in all...it's worth the trip. Great atmosphere and property. Go... More

We recently went to T. Cooks at the Royal Palms Resort for Mother's Day Brunch. I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY! You know how most buffets are - a lot of stuff, but only a few good items. Well this was MOST DEFINITELY not the case. Not only were there enough options to please everyone multiple times over, but each one... More

My family enjoyed the best dinning experience on Mother's Day at T Cooks. The food was excellent; fresh and delicious (which really impressed me because it was buffet style). The wait staff was so professional and courteous. The surrounding were beautiful and tranquil. And, due to it being Mother's day, all the women were treated like queens. I was amazed... More

Beautiful setting, excellent food and excellent wait staff. A tour of the grounds is worth the time as well!

They seated us at a private outside table with our own fireplace! It was over the top! They made sure and replenished the wood to ensure it was a roaring fire. The pork chop was so flavorful, the beet salad was to die for! Try the cookie dessert!

Gone is the wonderful brunch that once was, the menu is nothing special, the quality of the of the food and amount for the prices is nothing special. Our server only came to the table twice and never asked how our meal was. Sadly there are many other places to eat that way out shine the once wonderful Tcooks. A... More

My wife and I had dinner at T. Cooks and enjoyed the meal very much. We had an early dinner so there were plenty of staff to attend to our table. The wait staff was great and very attentive. The food was tasty and dessert was so good! We would return and try and stay at the hotel. The setting... More
