Waiter made the experience. Explained the menu, gave recommendations and made the whole experience fun. All the food was fantastic. Amazing fish dishes both started and main. Nice atmosphere. Feels relaxed.

We had a really lovely experience at the T. Cook restaurant at the Royal Palms Resort. We were warmly welcomed into the dining room and found our server to be very professional, personable, informative and efficient. We both ordered the Beef Tenderloin with sides of potatoes and mushrooms. Everything was excellent! The portions were large, especially the sides, and glad... More

Given the excellent reviews on this site regarding the resort overall, we thought a nice Saturday brunch would be in order. We waited too long upon entering(2-3 min) before someone sat us to our table. The gum chewing hostess was a special touch, btw. Server was prompt regarding our drink order, but needed to be reminded, twice, to bring water.... More

I was surprised with a lavish birthday retreat at the Royal Palms, and I can assure you it's a birthday I'll never forget. We visited T. Cook's twice during our stay, and it blew us away! You must ask for Robert, a wonderful server. He will make sure every one of your needs is taken care of, all with a... More

I went with three friends and everyone enjoyed the entire experience. The setting is relaxing and classy. The menu is not too big to overwhelm you but also offers plenty of choices. I really enjoyed the beef and would most certainly return.

Had a delicious experience at T.Cooks. Both the Sunday brunch and a terrific dinner. Check out the quinoa salad, risotto, tenderloin and rhubarb desert, yum!

I've always loved T. Cook's at the Royal Palm and I'm sad to say I will not be back. My husband and I just came from possibly the worst breakfast we've ever had and one of the worst all around dining experiences we've had. My husband ordered the waffle with fresh strawberries and I ordered, on the recommendation of our... More

Made reservations for Father's day brunch, it was all we expected and more. The breakfast buffet options were plenty for the average individual, but adding an entree made for quite a decadent meal. The jumbo shrimp and fruit options along with the pastries on the buffet were excellent and very fresh. It is very family friendly, even though it appears... More

Our second dining experience here. Last time was in December and the place was electric with Christmas parties, festive occasions. This time it was middle of summer, low crowds, very quiet. We enjoyed the quiet restaurant, the service was excellent and the food was very good (trout and beef tenderloin entrees). We will return.

I thought we were in for a treat last Friday night as my wife and I, along with a friend, went to T. Cooks for the first time. And it was a beautiful setting no doubt about it. The problem was with the food. All three dishes were lacking in taste, bland, and far below the anticipated standard. For the... More
