The potato soup was delicious as always. My wife and I ordered the Low Country Shrimp and it was very good. We love the rolls, they are almost like dessert, The only complaint I have is that where my wife was sitting, the servers bumped into her chair every time they passed by her. It got rather annoying, and there... More

Met there with family yesterday on a trip to grandkid's basketball game. Ordered lunch and Regina [server] informed me of a special "prime rib pepper soup" they had made with left over prime rib......it was wonderful. You can always count on them to have excellent food and service with a smile.

All of the employees are very friendly. Your waiter or waitress are "johnny on the spot" with your needs. You are greeted by each employee when you come in contact with them. Would recommend to anyone.

We were the first party seated in a glassed-in section adjacent to the main dining room; our table was underneath two fans. Although we were wearing winter jackets, we were shivering and asked our server if he'd turn down the fans. He said he'd have to ask the manager, but 15 minutes later, he said he still had not been... More

We had a great server named Josh. He anticipated everything we would want before we wanted it. The food, from the salads to the entrees was really good. The apple pie was awesome. Everything was neat and clean as well.

All though we love O'charleys prime rib and always go there for it, we have had several disappointing visits to this particular restaurant in Cookeville. The steaks were cut badly, full of gristle and did not come close to the quality we expected from O'charleys. We have eaten at many other O'charleys in other cities and states and never had... More

Great food. Had the plank salmon, steak, and pork chop. All good with a good price for all you got. Service was friendly and prompt.

Wilted salad lettuce, cold chicken fingers, and missing bacon bits on your Southern Fried Chicken Salad? Not the usual O Charley's lunch experience on 9/11/16.
