We were in town for Fathers Day and met at Cooley's based on a request from my dad. They had a very nice breakfast selection and the prices were very good. The food tasted great and while service was a bit slow, it was to be expected on such a busy day. We will stop in again when we are... More

We went here on a whim, looking for someplace different for breakfast. It was great. It's really hard to mess up your standard breakfast fare and they did not. We really liked so much about this place. A bit quiet and a little weird for us to eat at a place with a liquor bar, but other than that is... More

We ate lunch at Cooleys Restaurant & Pub at NORTH Main Street in Fuquay Varina today (note: there's another Cooleys at SOUTH Main Street in FV, also). The food portions were ample, the food was very good & fresh, and service was very efficient. Planned to try their HOMEMADE desserts, but we were too full to do so! Will have... More

Went here on St. Patrick's day. Not too many people in the restaurant. We always loved Cooley's when it was at the previous location. Today was our first try at the new location. While it is much bigger, the atmosphere was much better at the old location. This location seems tired and dated. The food was good and the service... More

My husband and I love this place! We don't plan to go every Friday, but we seem to end up there. They have a long diverse menu to fill anyone's appetite (home cook'in to sophisticated cuisine) , cocktails to marinate in and the best desserts any where around. See you tonight, Cooley Family!

We discovered Cooley's about 9 years ago and eat there at least once a week, every Friday night and sometimes Sunday morning. The owners are very friendly and hospitable, and the servers are not only efficient but very personable. We have always found the food and service to be excellent! My husband loves their prime rib and they have always... More

Sundays they offer a brunch menu that also includes some other items. Service was efficient, wait staff very friendly and even though they were steady busy, we never felt rushed. Their omelets were DELICIOUS. They also gave you a variety of sides to choose from and the hot coffee kept coming. I would definitely recommend them for brunch.
