Cook's was a wonderful experience to find upon house hunting in the Deland, Fl area. Downtown next to Stetson, it is nestled nicely against the college backdrop and yet catches your eye with a simplistic yet elegant curb appeal. Having my two young sons with me, we decided to give it a try. Something besides "chicken nuggets and fries" that... More

Great looking buffet. Salad aisle had a lot to choose from including coleslaw and macaroni salad. I had the turkey with stuffing, mashed potatoes and redskin potatoes. All were very good. For dessert, they have an assortment of cakes. I tried the chocolate cake. It was moist, sweet and delicious. Great Job!!!

I was skeptical about going to a buffet place for dinner. Face it the food is never that great. WOW am I glad we went. This place has excellent food! From now on whenever we are in town we WILL be eating here. The carved turkey and beef were fantastic! The sides were very tasty and plenty of choices. This... More

Beautiful selection of salads, fruits and cooked and fresh vegetables, all we could eat. We had several entrees to choose from, fish, pulled pork, roast beef, lamb and pastry topped pot pie. Everything was yummy and service was great. Had to forego the desserts, but they looked awfully spectacular, especially the many-layered cakes. Will definitely go there again.

Had the soup and salad bar for lunch. Soups were good, salad bar was well appointed. Will return to try the hot entree buffet since many people are raving about it! Our server was a jewel!
