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.

'Walking into this place wasn't exciting, but the drinks and food were great. Service was a little slow, because they were packed and we were worried about missing our Georgetown Loop train. But they managed to satiate our thirst with delightful alcoholic beverages and feed us with delightful homemade gourmet specialties.

The food was okay, the price a bit expensive for the quality. The restaurant was crowded and the service was long. The room was dirty, food all over the place (on the carpet etc.) . I think you can find something better for the price

A local restaurant, they had a large reservation so the wait was about 1/2 hour. Many of the locals would talk with you while waiting and since it was so busy I invited a visiting nurse that stopped for lunch to sit with us at our table outside. So I learned about the train ride there that I ended up... More

Had a late lunch at the Cooker while we were visiting Georgetown. I ordered the Turkey BLAT which was good and my wife ordered the soup of the day and the quiche, which were both horrible. Service was also spotty, so would look for a different spot if we're ever back this way again.

Food here is very tasty and good portions. Inside and outside seating. There will probably be a wait to be seated during summer weekends - very worth it. Staff has always been very knowledgeable and friendly.

Breakfast so good we went back a second day!!! Fresh homemade bread and pastries!! And don't forget to get a hot cinnamon roll to share at your table. Nice attentive service, who gave us a few pointers on things to do for the day. Will definitely be back on our next visit!!!

Thank bwibob
