Great price, great buffet, fun waitress

went with a large group. From Stuart, FL. They did a great job. Food was fresh and great variety. They need to purchase more wine glasses as they had run out and were serving in tall soda glasses, but it didn't matter. Amy, our waitress was great.friendly and accommodating.She deserves a raise!!

Wow! We were looking for a good lunch before heading to the Stetson Mansion and boy it sure was a great place to dine. I had one of their specials which was fresh sliced lamb roast with homemade gravy and mashed potatoes with some fresh vegetables. And can you believe it was all for $5.99. The lamb was outstandingly tasty... More

The food was very bad quality tasted very old. 4 of us went there for dinner. All 4 of us thought the same. Food was not very good. the price upgrade was not worth the price. Some of the food was cold. Service was ok.

24 of us went to Cooks (4th year in a row) for a wonderful home cooked meal. Not a fancy restaurant, but the food prep was perfect. Pricing is very reasonable . Our entire group loved it.

Excellent food, but wait service is slow. Had the buffet. Salad bar was great. I had turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans for entree. All were excellent. Took dessert home, and it was fabulous as well. Very reasonable price for a meal. Waitress was just very slow bringing drinks, check, and dessert order.
