My wife and I have dined here regularly for many years. We've celebrated numerous special occasions at Kool Beanz in Tallahassee and we've always enjoyed our meals. Also, we have always enjoyed wonderful dining and drinks with great friends here. The wine selection is good but you can also bring in your favorite wines for a nominal corkage fee. A... More

This was our first visit to Kool Beans but will not be our last! The menu shows that the chefs here are crafting their foods. Entrées are paired with appropriate side dishes. My husband enjoyed a Grouper meal that was fantastic. I enjoyed a pork loin meal. Prices are what you would expect for such a special meal. Come here... More

Kool Beanz Cafe was recommended by friends as an offbeat place for dinner while in Tallahassee. I had taken my son to an audition at FSU and we decided to try it. Other than the cramped parking and waiting time, it was as advertised, we truly enjoyed the food and were able to have a conversation even though it was... More

My 2nd visit was as good as the first. Amberjack in low country sauce was Deelicious! Father had the linguini with craw dad tails. Tasty too! Did I mention the calamari appetizer was dang good too. I'm not in Tallahassee often but when I am Kool Beanz is my dinner stop.

A gem in mid-town Tallahassee. We have dined here for dinner twice and lunch once. A constantly changing menu with fresh offerings. Servings are generous so we often order an appetizer or salad and share an entree.

July 2014, my second visit & to celebrate my birthday. Just as wonderful as my first. Very eclectic "foodie" restaurant. Menu offerings change and some entree's the same as before. Atmosphere to my liking, not quite and not too loud. Staff knows what they are doing. Local artwork adorns the walls. Grill in view and if you sit at the... More

My boyfriend and I went to Kool Beanz Cafe for the first time and LOVED the food. I got the duck and we both agreed it was delicious, it was my first time ever having duck. However, the service was not friendly. It wasn't bad service but never once did we get a smile.

Kool Beanz delivers refined food in a friendly atmosphere. Great place for Florida sea food and cutting edge local creations.
