I travel quite a bit and really enjoy good food, but this was an unexpected gem. Cookeville is a smallish town, somewhat larger than my hometown, so I was looking forward to enjoying a decent meal prepared by decent folks, just like a lot of the places at home.

This is an excellent restaurant specializing in Cajun/New Orleans cuisine but all of their food is delicious. Excellent value at lunch with many choices.

This place was recommended by my hotel staff, I gave it a try and was not disappointed. I always like to try local beers, so I asked my server what was what. I wound up with a "Calfkiller J. Henry Original Mild Ale", which, after a few tentative tastes, went down pretty well. I had looked at the menu on... More

Passing thru town and decided to grab some NOLA food. So glad we came here. Oysters on the half shell were delish. Diego, our bartender/server was fabulous! Diego is charming, efficient, and knowledgeable. Diego made our evening perfect. The pulled pork gumbo was great, the Cajun sampler was also good. And the fried green tomatoes were huge and yummy. They... More

Nice restuarant in a cute town. Food was excellent. Service was very nice and expedient. We had the gator bites which were delicious. The Caesar salmon salad was amazing.

Hose wines are much cheaper &... More

I went to dinner with my co-worker and customer. I asked the waitress if they had any porter beers and she had no idea what I was asking. When she refilled our waters, she stood in one place and reached her arm across people's faces rather than walking next to each guest. My customer ordered lemonade and was told no... More
