We came here in the morning for breakfast and we will definitely be coming back! Our waitress was really friendly and was accommodating when I asked to have cheese on my eggs for my little one. My husband and I both ordered the Cooley's Slammer and the food arrived quickly and was hot and delicious. The pancakes were unbelievable and... More

The last time I ate here the service was so bad. Our waitress was very stressed out because they were so busy. She could not handle a Friday night. But, I thought I would go one more time and see if everything was better. Service was better, however the cook came out and looked at us and gave me a... More

I ordered the chicken penne...when I got it there was grease on the side under all the noodles! There was so so much grease that I couldn't even taste the Alfredo sauce! And when I sent it back the waitress looked at me like she was fixing to ask "what do you want me to do about it"! Service was... More

I love Cooley's restaurant but I am so unhappy that they have quit serving the fish tacos. My favorite and shouldn't be too difficult to make.

My family and I highly recommend Cooley's!!! They have delicious home-cooked, freshly- prepared food for adults and children. Their tea is southern-approved, consistently! We have never been disappointed with any meal we've chosen whether breakfast/brunch, lunch or dinner! After a hard days work, when my husband says "We're going to Cooley's", I say "Yaay"! The atmosphere is very relaxing...and clean.... More

We have lived in the area for about a year now. Been here about 5 times and every time the food is delicious! Great place for a good home cooked meal. The desserts are awesome too! The service is always good and the atmosphere is very cozy and welcoming. We love this place!

Just came back from our usual Saturday morning breakfast with friends. Wonderful breakfast. Always hot and well done and if my eggs aren't quite where I want them they are more than willing to redo them. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Great way to start the day! Saturday night will find us at Cooley's because I love their pork... More

Cooley's appears to be a popular restaurant based on the full parking lot at meal times. Our party of 5 ate here on a recent Friday night. It was moderately busy with a 20 minute wait for a table. Service was good. Not so with the food. It appears that the bulk of what is served here likely comes out... More

By-pass this restaurant if what you are looking fresh and flavorful food. Wings were good,but not special. Sirloin over-marinated, shrimp quoted as grilled no reference to being spiced, ribs cooked well but lacked flavor. Salad is lacking if you like vegetables, basically a plate of not so fresh lettuce. The blue cheese dressing lacked blue cheese flavor likewise the french... More
