Food was good. I especially liked the corn bread salad. I like the desserts better than the regular food but all is good. Atmosphere is good. You are on a farm and can see the cows right outside the window. Lots of parking and off the beaten trail. hard to find but everyone in that area knows where it is.... More

There were lots of choices on the menu. The food was all fine it's just that sometimes I would rather have a few choices of great vegetables instead a bunch of choices of so-so vegetables. You know? The desserts looked fabulous and it was neat to look at the hundreds of cookie jars that are on display. The food was... More

Good food. Wonderful view! A little off the beaten path but worth the trip. Cracker Barrel like with a home town feel.

Today was our second visit to The Cookie Jar. The location, and the view from the porch is awesome. Food was good, service was excellent. The chocolate pie was yummy. Next time we're down this way we will definitely return.

The Cookie Jar has become a family tradition for us! Anytime family comes to visit us, we make a point to take a trip to the Cookie Jar. The food is southern country cooking. The chicken tenders are definitely my favorite. You must save room for homemade desserts. The wedding cake cupcakes are delicious. The Italian cream cupcakes are even... More

While visiting the area we tried the Cookie Jar. The experience was a real treat. The location was beautiful, the service was surprisingly good especially considering there were two large parties. The food was excellent, I had catfish which was mouth watering. The vegetables were very good as well. It has been a long time since I have enjoyed the... More

This is my favorite restaurant. The chicken and dumplings and grilled meatloaf are my favorites. I can't fail to mention the rolls and desserts. Great family owned restaurant in a unique setting.

After hiking all day in fall creek falls state park. We found this gem. It is in the middle of no where but the food was great and the service was better. We enjoyed sitting on rocking chairs while waiting for our table. This is one of the most unique restaurants I have ever been too. Read the story on... More

First, the location is gorgeous in the Sequatchie Valley, on a farm with barns and silos. There's also a small petting zoo, tractor, and other things for kids to play with. It looks like a little country cabin with rockers out front. The food was great. It was the real deal, not pre-packaged stuff. The chicken fingers were breaded and... More
