Definitely won't be back! Bland food! Definitely not fresh! Cakes are not homade! Taste like they came out of the box for a $1, they charge $4 for 1 dessert! And every vegetable is canned except for the nasty mushy carrots!

NOT A BUFFET! You don't get to serve yourself. ONE piece of meat or you have to pay more. HORRIBLE customer service. Management is a joke or embarrassed to let us talk to the real management.

This is a buffet restaurant. The food is bland for the most part. The carving station is impressive...if you can get the carver to notice you're there. Desserts are good, but certainly not superlative. It's a good place to take a family for a meal, because the prices aren't bad.

One of the BEST things about DeLand, Florida (and there are A LOT!!) is Cook's Buffet, Cafe AND (mouth is watering as I type this) BAKERY! Once you go, you will KNOW! First, the building and grounds are meticulously kept and very attractive, in keeping with the CHARM of Stetson University, which is directly across the street. Walk in and... More

This is a wonderful atmosphere Where your food is shoe cased On a Buffet. There is a large Salad bar and the Vegetables are Fresh. There is a choice of all different kinds of meats and the Desserts are exciting!

Cooks is a long time favorite of my family. Their friendly service, excellent meals and wonderful atmosphere is always a treat! I had a steak pita for lunch and it was the best I've ever had.

This was the best meal that I've ever had at a restaurant, the service was also excellent ! We're planning on going back but this time we're taking the whole family. I've even invited some friends from church to come enjoy a delicious meal with us and I told them that if it isn't good I'll pick up the tab.

We really enjoy eating at Cook's Buffet. The meals are always tasty and fresh. The salad buffet has many vegetable selections that always look fresh and appealing. Their chicken salad and potato salad are great. There are several meat choices. My husband and I both chose the turkey and dressing on our last visit. The vegetable choices are some of... More
