Every time I go to Tallahassee for work I always try to get at least one dinner at Kool Beanz. They've expanded into a big tent (patio) on the outside and glad to report the food is a great as ever. It's about $25 per entree and $6 or $7 for salads. Sitting at the bar watching them cook is... More

Kool Beanz has creative, changing, fresh food combinations that will tantalize your tastebuds every time you go there whether for lunch or dinner & never will you be disappointed in service. I am a regular here and they are deserving of five stars not because of elegance but because they are always very good. They have an okay selection of... More

Found this on Trip Advisor while passing by Tallahassee, FL. Unique, one of a kind place. I had the grilled salmon with really fresh green beans, lentils and oven fries. My husband had Mojo spiced chicken, chorizo, shrimp, black beans and rice. Wonderful flavors in both dishes. Staff was very friendly.

We had the bratwurst and bouillabaisse and absolutely loved it. They change their menu daily and 1 hour wait is common. Get here early if you can. Wait staff is excellent!

I have eaten at a lot of restaurants and this is one of my favorites - the menu is always changing but always has some of my old favorites - as an try the Black Bean Cakes, Salsa Fresca, Smoked Chile Sour Cream or the Fired Eggplant if it is on the menu - the fish is always good one... More

between my husband and i we have tried at least 10 different menu items. I have liked some, but but loved most. Go when you are really hungry because you will clean your plate. If the weather is nice sit outside and relax!

I still remember when this restaurant first opened and the consistent quality of food that they have always offered. If you are looking for a quiet atmosphere to dine in, this is not the place for you. However, if you are looking for an innovative, edgy mixing of flavor and textures in your meal then get on down to Kool... More

Never had a bad meal or experience at Kool Beanz. Their food is consistently good even as they vary their menu. Great food, good service.

We live near Kool Beans and have been taking people from all over the world there for years. The menu is varied with flavors from all over. It's a one-of-a-kind place with something to offer everyone, all made from the freshest ingredients, including seafood, and it is entirely professional in a bit of a counter-culture atmosphere. People eat at Kool... More

Kool Beanz has a very unique and delicious menu. The Blackened Cobia and fried okra were awesome! Never had a bad meal or service!
