white table cloth, semi-tea room restaurant

this is an interesting place to visit - for background info check out their information via the Internet. Very nice food, and atmosphere. Be sure to visit the gift shop and the plant/garden shop.

My only regret is that this restaurant is far from where I live or I would it there more often. Had lunch there yesterday with four other ladies. The service was first rate, friendly staff and the food was well worth every penny spent, which is very reasonable in price. One of the finest points, you do not feel rushed... More

We had reservations for noon, and were quickly seated. We were then met by the host who explained the specials such as the soup of the day and the catch of the day. Since this was our first visit, the host also explained how the citizens of Brookwood Community work at the Cafe and the Greenhouses. The meal was excellent... More

My friends and I tend to eat here on "occasions" for our group, birthdays and holidays. The menu is diverse and I have never had anything that wasn't good. We love being able to go out to eat at a restaurant that is not ridiculously expensive that has white table clothes and a warm ambiance. Every menu item I have... More

Went here with other ladies during the holidays to shop and eat lunch. Really enjoyed both! The gumbo and steak salad were good, but I would recommend them asking how you would like your steak cooked as ours was too over cooked. The carrot cake that we shared was good too.

I have been here several times, and would recommend it to anyone who is interested. We always enjoy the atmosphere, and today was no different. I love and appreciate the independence this program is designed to give. It is a blessing to witness! And, yes, the food is always great too!

Brookwood is a Community for special needs adults and there is much more to see and do there than just have lunch. Eating at the cafe is like dining at a Four Seasons hotel with white table clothes and flowers and the best service you will ever get. It is open from 11 am to 2 pm for lunch only... More

Our lunch at The Cafe at Brookwood was amazing...as it always has been. The menu is varied, and you just can't go wrong. The salads are crisp and fresh, soups, hot and yummy, sandwiches, and enters just perfect. We used to live close by, and now when we're back in the area, we try and make it a point to... More

Had lunch with some of my rodeo committee members ( trailblazers) prior to our sip and shop event. The food was excellent as well as the fun time that we had there shopping. Beautiful place and it was beautifully decorated for the holiday season. I love going there all year long.

We went to Brookwood to have lunch and were overwhelmed by how good the food and service was. We are planning a return trip during the Christmas season. Our server told us that the decorations will be worth another trip. You add that to the food and its a no brainer. Make sure to try the apple mint tea!
