We were in Johnson City for three days and ate here three times! I loved everything I had, especially the mufalata, bratwurst and turtle cake. Superb atmosphere - laid back with eclectic decorating - we LOVED this place!!

Excellent service and excellent food. We eat here at least once a month and enjoy it every time. The salad with jerk chicken is very good. Pizzas- both gluten free and regular- are amazing. Fun atmosphere.

I took my family here for dinner and we were quickly seated and offered a menu that looked like the daily newspaper, very creative. It provided sumptuous details about each dish. The main dining room was colorfully decorated with great murals and other art pieces. We had cheeseburgers that were delicious, beer brats that my son loved, and I had... More

Cootie Browns has lots of food choices and great beer choices. The atmosphere is fun and casual. The service is very good most of the time except when they are very busy. There are vegetarian options.

Cootie Brown's is a fun place to eat. The atmosphere is very pleasant and upbeat. Service is very good. And most importantly, the food is interesting and delicious. Their salads are fresh and satisfying. Custom pizzas and beef tamales are a couple of my favorite menu items. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Recommend - wish I had never gone there. Our server was awesome, food not so much. They are known for pizza so if you want pizza - this place may be for you, not me.
