Cook's always has such a great variety. Each time we go there is a little something different. We never get tired of eating there. I love the fish and my wife tries something different every time. The lunch clipboard special gives you everything for one price. We always have to get our dessert to go. You will be full from... More

Wonderful restaurant that makes you feel at home when you're there. The food here is consistently good, and the turkey salad is one of a kind.

This review and two previous negative reviews are very suspicious. We have contacted Trip Advisor with information for them to investigate. If you look at our rating percentage and glowing reviews you will be very pleased along with our other thousands of customers that dine with us each week. We look forward to seeing you. More
