Great restaurant - Great food - love their BBQ chicken and fudge brownie dessert! Loved the decor and the fact it was very spacious not crowded together. Staff was very friendly and helpful!

We use to feel cheated going to Brooks because the chickens and rib servings were so small. In recent years, we are happy returnees. The ribs are delicious; the varies of foods have expanded; the salad bar although not great has expanded. A good place to go with family and informal dining with friends.

Brooks has been a local favorite for many years. You can't miss with either the chicken or the ribs meal. Good food at a reasonable price.

Lunch was ok, fair portions. Food is mass produced, nothing spectacular. Huge line to get in. Other local restaurants had nicer options.

The experience here is always consistent. I highly recommend just the chicken- ribs are fatty and not that good. The reason for only 3 stars is because they dont have a liquor license. I like to have a drink with my meal.

I have been going to Brooks since I was a child. The chicken is the specialty, but I have fallen in love with their pulled pork. Good food, not over priced.

Brooks is almost a "must" for visitors to the Oneonta area, warm and welcoming to families, college students, tourists. Their chicken is hugely popular, and salad bar is usually fresh and well stocked. Prices are family-friendly as is the atmosphere.

Great B-B-Q and wonderful service. My favorite place to go for dinner and we always bring family and friends from out of town for a special treat. The wait can be long, but it is always worth it.
