Went there for the first time this past Thursday. The meat carver appeared mad at the world and was a little light on the meat portions. However, the rare roast beef he cut for me was pretty good. The Italian green beans tasted like they came right out of the can and were quite bland. The potatoes, gravy and bread... More

On the way back home, we stopped at Cook's Buffet, Café & Bakery. That was a surprise (and a good one at that). It was noon and a lot of food for me. But well worth it, The food was great, charming building with a lot of history and interesting time. I ended up eating too much food which is... More

Sometimes I just want "comfort food", have picky eaters (like kids) with me, or have an unadventurous eater in the group. We have been to Cook's a few times now, and it has been consistently good -- both the food and service. This is not your typical "all you can eat" buffet, but you definitely won't leave hungry. The salad... More

My family and I have had decades of excellent meals and memories together at Cook's Buffet (formerly known as the Holiday House). The price includes an entree (beef, pork, poultry or fish), all of the fresh vegetables that you care to eat, and one of the best salad bars in DeLand. Order the special and you can add a drink...

Delicious comfort foods, this is the place to stop!! A short distance from downtown Deland, and Stetson University, this is a charming restaurant that has been family owned. We have been eating here since they open sometimes twice a week! It is Buffet style, and they have salad bar, entrees, vegetables galore, sauces, gravies, and a dessert bar, that will... More

This buffet has probably the best salad bar in West Volusia. The buffet main food line has a carver who carves up nice pieces of Ham, Turkey, Lamb or Roast beef. I had the leg of lamb and it was done to perfection. Very reasonable prices. They also have an incredible desert collection with cakes that are about a foot... More

Came here for the first time. Wow, what a great meal. The buffet style all you can eat. The only drawback is you are limited to 1 serving of meat. You can pay more for a 2nd helping. They had 5 meats to choose from. Everything else is unlimited servings. The desserts all looked good, again limited to 1 but... More

My husband and I ate at Cook's for the first time tonight and we loved it! We are both stuffed; the food was outstanding and the carver gave us plenty of meat! I had the fish and my husband had the ham, but they also had three other meet choices. The veggies and salad bar were also filled with plenty... More
