Drove 30 min to find it. No wait, special of the day barbecue. Wife had the barbecue, excellent, tomatoes fresh but green beans out of a can. My grilled meat loaf had more filler than meat and the mashed potatoes I had to eat with a spoon, (very runny) and rolls definitely not home made. Stay home not worth the... More

We were in Dunlap for a quick visit. Checked Travelocity to find a place for dinner. The Cookie Jar was listed as number one so decided to give it a try. Had to wait about 30 minutes for a table which was fine. They have lots of rocking chairs on the porch and a nice view. Being number one and... More

Took a ride down to Dunlap TN to the Cookie Jar Café after calling to make a reservation. It is a little off the beaten path but worth the effort to find it. The food is home style with big helping so try to only order a meat and two sides to save a little room for some of their... More

The cookie jar is located on a beautiful, peaceful farm in Dunlap, TN. It is a great place to go for "home cooked" meals. The food and surroundings are wonderful.

Not much can be said about the Cookie Jar, except it is AWESOME! The view is of rolling Tennessee hills and farm animals. You could sit on the front porch and rock watching the clouds move in. Service was excellent. The food was comfort food and we left comfortably full! My husband brought home a slice of strawberry cake which... More

Drove 45 mins to this great place to eat in the country. Got there at 12:55. Our hostess dropped us off at a table that they quickly wiped all the small paper pieces on the floor and left us with a dripping table. The waitress came by 10mins later to take our drink order. We ordered our lunch then also.... More

The setting is incredibly beautiful! The restaurant exemplifies genuine charm. The food is truly fantastic. My only complaint is the wait time. I really get annoyed when I have to wait 45 min. to be seated in a restaurant with multiple empty tables. In that respect, the restaurant has a real efficiency problem. However, you can (and should if it... More

Yum! This was my first trip there. It's a great place for a meat and 3. Everything was freshly prepared and served hot. The deserts looked incredible, sorry I was too full to try one.

I was in Dunlap for business, and checked Trip Advisor for ratings for lunch. The Cookie Jar came up first, and I was not disappointed in the food, the atmosphere or the price. The food was like going home to grandma's house, and was very reasonably priced. The yeast rolls were worth the drive out to the farm, and the... More

It's a little country restaurant tucked away on a beautiful family farm! I had grilled chicken with fried okra, baked sweet potato and Mac&cheese! It was DELICIOUS!! They serve rolls and corn bread before the meal and they are the best rolls I have ever eaten! Their desserts look amazing and are delicious! We had a big group of 12... More
