This is a Farm to Table restaurant and almost all of the offerings are created from local farms and purveyors. There are plenty of organic and gluten free menu items with good tastes all around. I do not suffer from food allergies, but have family members who are sensitive to them. This restaurant offers tasty menu items for all family... More

We didn't have an opportunity to stay for dinner, but thoroughly enjoyed the Happy Hour. For a reasonable price we were able to enjoy a couple of glasses of wine along with sliders, all the while enjoying the view out the windows. Service was friendly and efficient and our sliders were delish. We're looking forward to returning for lunch or... More

We came after a long day of biking, famished. Service was friendly, prompt, and cheerful. Quickly resolved an incorrect food order. Food was good, made from real ingredients, and satisfying. Prices were reasonable. Atmosphere was modern and nice. Highly recommended.

Great food in an excellent place. And thanks for getting our group of 7 in with limited notice. I'll definitely be back when ever I'm in town.

I love this restaurant!! it's got amazing farm-to-table food with unique menu items, including innovative vegetarian food. Plus, it's affordable, has outdoor seating and is right in the heart of fish creek. Loved the items they had for sale, bought an adorable book and toy for my daughter, and found lots of other items I wanted to buy. Bakery items... More

My family of eight dined here and everyone enjoyed the atmosphere and food. The homemade potato chips and cheese curds were great ! The pork chop dinner was a favorite among a few family members. Prices were not outrageous . Would go back again!

My wife and I were glamping at peninsula state park and wanted to have a nice dinner this past Friday evening! We researched some nearby restaurants on trip advisor and decided on "the cookery" because of the menu! We were not disappointed! We went upstairs to the bar area, found a small table for two and ordered a few glasses... More

We were seated right away and had great service. What I liked most is that The Cookery promotes the local farms and fisheries by using their ingredients. Prices were reasonable and they had a small gift shop section as well.
