New in town and enjoy dining outside. Chicken dish entree was ok, house salad was not very fresh, mashed potatoes were good, Service was good, dining outdoors and the Key Lime Pie were truly the highlights. Will give it another try for entree. Perhaps an off night.

One of the best local restaurants I have ever eaten at. I have been a lot of places in TN and surrounding states and this establishment is one of the finest. The atmosphere and food is eclectic. I recommend getting the pizza or Jamaican jerk chicken. Sides I would try the spinach dish with blue cheese.

Before moving to the mountains of VA and while living in the general Tri-Cities area we visited Cootie Brown's many times. Recently while visiting back in the Tri we stopped in again at Cootie's. It is still a 'funky" but cool place in terms of the atmosphere. My favorite fish sandwich from years past didn't seem to be on the... More

If you are looking for something different, you should definitely stop here! It's a unique look and covered in local artwork. The waitstaff were incredibly nice. The food was really good with large portions. If you like beer, there are plenty to choose from! I can't wait to come back and try something else!

We love the crazy colors and bohemian décor of this place. It had been awhile since we had visited for a meal though. I have a feeling that we should have ordered the pizza. I was in the mood for a big juicy burger and ordered one only to find it looked like a frozen patty that was cooked on... More
