Good homecooking

I loved the breakfast at Cooley's. The blueberry pancakes and grits are great. The biscuits are homemade. They have a lot of variety on the lunch/dinner menu so everyone will find something they like. The chicken, sandwiches, and fish dishes were all very good.

My wife loves this place and we have been several times. They are consistently good. The food is good, and we have a favorite waitress there who always takes great care of us. We did have one bad experience there but it was by far the exception. If you want a good meal at a decent price and like the... More

We're new to Fuquay Varina and we didn't know where to go for dinner that wasn't a chain restaurant. My daughter found Cooley's online and suggested we try it. It's a great place, friendly staff, and great food. Ample portions and reasonably priced. We'll be going back.

Initially, I went in for drinks only. After an hour, I decided to order dinner. I ordered their Bourbon Steak. The meat prepared as I ordered (medium rare) and was so tender and succulent! The vegetables were cooked just right, and the staff made the evening memorable and enjoyable. I recommend Cooley's to anyone who enjoys a good meal, a... More

We went again. It was better, but we ordered simple meals. It wasn't busy, so the wait staff wasn't stressed. They actually smiled. By the time we left there were many customers and everything seemed to be running smoother. So, we may be back again. I like the

We come here often after church and love the variety of sandwiches and the fact that you can still get breakfast items at lunch!

Our grand kids love Cooleys. They have the best burgers. Also love their club sandwiches and crab cake sandwiches. Their homemade chips are the best I have ever had. They are always crispy and delicious. Great family restaurant. Full bar. Great wine and beer choices.

Since there are so many people who just LOVE Cooleys at this location, I though I would try again and hope it would be a good night. For the record when they were on the corner, dining there was perfect every time!! The food and service was always the best!! But then they moved to a bigger place. Seemed to... More

While the food is good and reasonable, the interior needs remodeling and the bathrooms are in need of immediate renovation. I would not recommend this place only because of its appearance and restrooms
