inside looks like something found at the outer banks

Reasonably priced food and interior usually found at the beach. Staff works really hard rushing around, kitchen takes a while so don't be in a hurry.

Nice atmosphere, unique artwork the walls. Good food but slow service. Wait staff was not very attentive, took way too long to get our check. Spiral Chips would have been better with more salt and served hotter. NY Reuben was tasty. Jerk sauce was very tasty on the chicken sandwich. I would come back again and try the burgers or... More

Colorful and fun. Menu offers great varsity and the quality of food was good enough for me to want to drive my leftovers more than three hours home. I love that they offer half sandwhiches and the appetizer of pesto cheese dip could have fed an army. Service was outstanding. You won't be disappointed!

Have frequented cootie brown's on many occasions. Love to sit outside (it's covered) - window side tables, not wall side tables. Also, keep in mind that it will be noisy due to street traffic. My favorite salad is the Caribbean shrimp salad. I order the jerk sauce on the side, and add as i eat .. The jerk sauce is... More

I was in a party of six people and we loved it. I had a BBQ chicken sandwich with bacon and cheddar. It was very good. The rest of the table got: rack of ribs, a pizza formaggio (6 kinds of cheese), a muffuletta sandwich, and a baked formaggio sandwich. All were delicious according to my friends. We ended the...

Eat what you want, take the rest home. Too much flavor and taste for one sitting. The atmosphere is a bit quirky and fanciful, close your eyes if you didn't live through the 60's and 70's. It's about the "real food." Servers are good, management sucks.

Not bad, great service, good outdoor seating. Bar food, but pretty good. I'd return especially on a good weather day. Nice decor too

From custom tables to ingenious "semi-outdoor" seating (inside seating, too), Cootie Brown's offers a treat for the eyes as well as the appetite. The California pizza is great, as are the home-make chips. The muffulettas used to be out of the world -- lately they've been drab and uninspired. Do try the Rubens, though -- they will rock your world!

Usually stop here for their great Key Lime Pie. One of the best in the State. Unique place which seems to always have a crowd. Just a different kind of place that most can enjoy.

Key lime cheesecake and pizzas are great!! The menu is huge with so many great items to choose from. Don't forget the maytag fries for an appetizer - Homemade potatoe chips with a delicious blue cheese sauce. The only thing they are lacking is alcohol on their menu.
