The Cookie Jar Restaurant is worth the drive to Dunlap, Tennessee. The food is excellent and the service is great. Home cooking at its best. Homemade desserts, yummy. You are always welcome and provided with a great meal.

The food is okay, needs seasoning, the restaurant is clean and homey. Beautiful view. They have good pies, cakes and cupcakes. It's a little pricey for what you get.

We ate at The Cookie Jar and received great food and service. The food reminded me of my grand mothers cooking. No really a place for healthy food. The service was quick and friendly. Desserts were excellent.

This is one of those places that when you find it you wonder how it ever got there. The food is great, the atmosphere is even better. If you want a drive out of the city and enjoy some farm scenery, we'd recommend it. The food is great and the deserts are awesome! Great for a family outting. Highly recommended!

This place is not just about the food. The atmosphere is a big part of what makes it great. The Cookie Jar Cafe has a great story and it is written down for you to read at your convenience. It all began with a family farm that nobody wanted to lose. The views are incredible and I would be happy... More

Out for a beautiful fall drive across the mountain, and ended up at the cookie jar. We had already eaten lunch so it was dessert only for us. But wow! The homemade pies were excellent. . .especially the meringue.

We came across this gem searching for a place to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary. We'd heard about it from friends and made the 45 minute drive to Dunlap, TN. We called and made reservations, which are recommended, and was there when the restaurant opened on a Sunday. This restaurant is set among a family farm and the views are... More

The food is average, some homemade, some frozen. The baked goods are good and homemade. The view of mountains and the setting makes the food taste better. It is a darling little country restaurant with an amazing cookie jar collection in a beautiful setting.
