One of a kind home cooked food!

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.

We've been coming to this restaurant since the bob and willa cook days. our servers are always friendly on our visits. Food is always good not great. But, how do you expect to eat at an establishment if all you smell is sewage?!?!! I've even noticed gnats on the salad bar. SWARMS of them! somethings you just can't stomach. WILL... More

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

so happy that we have Cook's here in DeLand. Always high quality in food & service at reasonable prices. Best desserts too! Lots of great memories of celebrations. Everyone who moved away from DeLand & comes back to visit, makes this their first stop! Always always consistent. You will be back !!!!!

Fresh vegetables and childhood favorites (picked beets and 3 bean salad) on an amazingly large salad bar full of variety. There was something for everyone on the meat choices (fish, turkey, roast beef, ham, salisbury steak and even lamb!), carved fresh by friendly servers. Add to all that "the fixins" from grandmas house (mashed potatoes, green beans, carrots, macaroni and... More

False review! We have chosen in the past not to respond to negative reviews because we felt everyone was entitled to their opinion. But now enough is enough. The Internet has become an avenue for people to unfairly hurt businesses. First, the young man mentioned is the Genresl Manager and is 100% professional. Our customers make s point of complimenting... More

First time there was a wonderful experience. I opted for the salad & veggie combo. My husband had the full buffet. Our waitress was superb. Very attentive, pleasant and helpful. Would return in a heartbeat.
