Great small town restaurant. Crap dip is great and the Kentucky Bourbon Steak is really great also. Go to the restaurant all the time.

Cooley's is part restaurant part bar. Visited for a late lunch on a Saturday. The decor isn't anything to write home about but it is somewhat comfortable feeling.

I enjoy the french dip and salad. Ranch dressing is great. Deserts are the best in town. Weekend brunch is the best around. Service is fast and friendly.

Will never go back! Underseasoned mush that is overpriced & tasteless. Equally slow, poor service. We would suggest buying some frozen food at your local grocer & going home & making it yourself; it will taste better, be WAY faster & equate to what you would buy at this place for twice the $$.

I am a regular diner at Cooleys in Fuquay Varina. Every meal I've ever had has been excellent and the wait staff is friendly and quick, whether the meal is dine in or take out. I personally LOVE their crab dip and the Jack Daniels Bourbon Ribeye.
