First visit to the "Cooker" and we were quite pleased. They had quite a crowd since it was Thanksgiving week, but we were seated in a timely manner and the service was fine. Our waitress was quite pleasant and informative. There soups are homemade, and I loved the red chili, which had just enough heat. The sandwiches were plentiful and... More

We finally tried this small restaurant in the middle of Georgetown. The place was packed and we soon found out why. Prices are reasonable and the servings generous and delicious. The wait staff was a bit harried, but with nearly every table occupied we could see why.

I'm not sure what the owner did before going into the restaurant biz, but she sure can cook! All kidding aside, this is awesome place for lunch or dinner. The food quality is outstanding, and I found the service (despite other reviews to the contrary) to be excellent.

We visited the Happy Cooker on a snowy Monday in late November when about half of Georgetown was closed up tight. (The Happy Cooker is open at 7:00 every day, year round.) The service was delightful - friendly and helpful. We both ordered hot tea and were very pleased with the presentation: a basket full of herbal and traditional tea... More

We came in for lunch and the place was not busy although it became packed while we were there. Both servers were sullen and unfriendly. I ordered a drink but the server had to be reminded after I'd waited half an hour. It took almost an hour to get our food & it was cold. I would have to be... More

Happycookergt, Owner at The Happy Cooker, responded to this review

Thank you for your review. Most of our reviews tend to be good, but sadly, on occasion no matter how hard we try we have a not so savory one come through. I always try to respond to all of them but sometimes I just can't. This one however commands a response. I was one of the sullen staff members... More

Very fast friendly service! French Onion soup and Gouda Chicken sandwich were fantastic but other items were great too. Breakfast, lunch and dinner menus available for dinner time. Great place.

I could not tell if the two waitresses were feuding or both were just rude people. We saw two tables of people leave - party of 2 and party of 5 because of the waitresses. When the table of 5 complained and said they were leaving, the waitress commented, "Well - whatever." When I asked how long the wait for... More

Nearly everyone who's visited the little historic town of Georgetown, Colorado has eaten at the "the cooker," if you go, you'll understand why, the selection is varied and real, most people seem to have breakfast, even at lunch time, there's vegetarian items as well as thick sliced bacon and homemade soup. I like the quinoa burrito smothered in pork green... More

The food and the cost was excellent. The young lady who was our waitress did a very poor job. She basically took our order and delivered it. Never came back to refill our drinks unless we asked. She wasn't very friendly.
