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

My daughter makes the shrimp salad her specialty every week and all she has to do is nod her head and the order is taken. The serving staff and the owner Miss Paula are... More

We have been coming for 12 years. The staff has always been friendly. The food is well priced. There is something on the menu for everyone to enjoy. Breastfast is wonderful and what a deal. Breakfast only on weekends. Don't forget to have your homemade dessert!

We moved here from Virginia in November and Cooley's was recommended. We are not easily impressed by restaurants, but this is a GREAT ONE for atmosphere and personal customer service. If you have 'any' problems with your order they 'make it right' immediately. Special 'kudos' to Paula, Christine, Maura, and Brandy. They never cease to be friendly, personable and accommodating....

We have been here a few times and were pleased in the past. This last visit was disappointing to say the least. My wife's chicken was tough and not tender. The first half of my full rack of ribs was just ok, but the second half was not cooked and was tough. Service was good, friendly and helpful, but will... More
