Kool Beanz has a unique combination of menu choices that should please just about every taste out there. Our server was knowledgeable and made great dinner suggestions for us. All four entrees were outstanding...not huge potions but perfect. Excellent quality with great sides. Expect a wait as Kool Beanz is a "first come, first served" kind of place. We were... More

I went here with my wife for dinner while I was in Tallahassee. The service was quick and professional. The food was excellent. They had beer and wine with a nice selection of both. We sat at the counter to avoid the wait and really enjoyed the show of chefs preparing their colorful food creations. Everyone was having a good... More

I make no bones about it, we really enjoyed our visit to Kool Beanz. We'd read the reviews and the décor plus atmosphere were great, the staff friendly and the menu selection very good. The food was good, but a little let down by the presentation. Considering this and 'cafe' style, my wife and I felt that the cost of... More

Kool Beanz is always good, always lively, and all-round good. Sit at the bar and watch the chefs preparations for a treat, and save room for awesome desserts!

This is a fairly upscale restaurant based on the prices, but as others have pointed out the atmosphere is very loud and the outside tables are very cheap. That being said, my food was very good. I had the flat iron steak with mashed red potatoes and onion rings. Steak had an excellent flavor and onion rings were made from... More

The food was daily good, nothing too negative to say about it. However the prices are very steep. We had to sit outside because it was so packed, we sat in these horrible little metal chairs and had plastic cups all while paying $25 per entree and $9 for a glass of wine. Not worth it, but maybe they jacked... More

Went with friends to this over-the-top tacky/wonderful place. It's rustic and noisy, but in a good way. The food is excellent. Everyone in our group had something different. There were a lot of happy faces as we dug into our meals. Great food. The fried plantains were the best I ever had anywhere! The service was fine. I'm from out... More

I have eaten at Kool Benz many times and have always enjoyed the food and atmosphere. My favorite is to sit at the counter and watch the food being prepared right in front of me.

Enjoyed a nice meal at Kool Beanz with friends. Sat outside and it was less noisy than being inside. Complicated menu but good food.
