Brunch after church

Sundays they offer a brunch menu that also includes some other items. Service was efficient, wait staff very friendly and even though they were steady busy, we never felt rushed. Their omelets were DELICIOUS. They also gave you a variety of sides to choose from and the hot coffee kept coming. I... read more

We discovered Cooley's about 9 years ago and eat there at least once a week, every Friday night and sometimes Sunday morning. The owners are very friendly and hospitable, and the servers are not only efficient but very personable. We have always found the food and service to be excellent! My husband loves their prime rib and they have always... More

I visited and ordered a steak dinner that was on special. The waitress did not ask me how I wanted it cooked and I forgot to tell her. A few minutes later when I remembered, I mentioned that I didn't tell her how I wanted the steak cooked, she said that she had just put it in for medium. I... More

In late October, my cousin and I stopped for lunch to discuss investments. The waitress we had, Lisa...was excellent. She was professional, polite, and a good sense of humor. Even after I kept on asking for a Senior Discount, which they do not have. I had a Chicken Cesar Salad which was excellent and a side order of French Fries.... More

Consistently good and you can count on that. I've been going there for about 20 years. The crab soup is the best you can get locally. I always suggest Cooleys for newcomers, neighbors, friends and relatives.

The hashbrown casserole is the best. I highly recommend it. The food is always decent. I haven't eaten anything bad yet. The wait staff can be a little aggressive to children. Over all we have always enjoyed our meal there.

Wife ordered shrimp scampi, what she received was some previously frozen shrimp swimming in a tasteless broth, no garlic or seasoning of an kind. I ordered chicken parmesan and linguini, food was cold, greasy and tasteless, we both left our food and asked for the check to get out of there as soon as possible. Of course the horror didn't...
