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!

This is a delightful restaurant with linen table cloths, live plant centerpieces, a beautiful view of the gardens and delicious food. You definitely want to make a reservation to avoid any extensive waiting. We arrived at 11:00 am on Sunday and sat right down, but by the time we left, the after church crowd had arrived and it was packed.... More

A very special place! It's only open for lunch and reservations are recommended. First, this is five star dining at chain restaurant prices. Most meals run $9.95 to $12.95 with a few higher items. Lots of items on the menu and we have yet to be disappointed. The deserts are to die for! The chef is a graduate of the... More

My Mom had never been to Brookwood so we decided last minute to take her there. The food in the café is wonderful and we always make reservations...but not this time. It was about 12:20 and we were told that it would take 20 to 30 minutes to get a table even without reservations. That sounded satisfactory to us. We... More

This is a special restaurant. The gift shop adjacent to the restaurant always has unique product offerings and is fun to browse while waiting to be seated. The restaurant looks out over the nursery, which has a pretty water feature and is nice to stroll through after lunch. The food is always flavorful and tastes fresh. The restaurant also has... More
