My husband and I visited Father Tom's Pub a couple of months ago while in Cookeville to visit his family. We both ordered beer, he got the Pearl (a specialty burger with brie, pears, and onions) and I ordered the pork sliders. Though it was a little pricey, we really enjoyed the food and looked forward to coming back.
We returned this past weekend, but were pretty disappointed this time around. With a group of friends, we ordered a few rounds of drafts, an appetizer and two burgers...our tab totaled $83 with the tip.
The draft selection is pretty decent, but at $4.50, you might want to limit yourself to one. We ordered the "artisan" cheese plate for an appetizer, and at $12, we were a little let down. We got 4 different cheeses and some gluten-free crackers that had a weird flavor. The cheeses were good, but probably came from Kroger. Our burgers were decently priced, but wwwaaayyy over-salted. Now, I like some salt, but by the time I had finished 1/2 of my burger, the salt was sending chills down my spine. I'm also not a huge fan of the pretzel buns they use, which seem to be all the rage these days.
All this to say, I'd be willing to give Father Tom's another try, but I'll be a little more careful in my food selection next time. And I'll limit myself to 1 drink and pick up a six-pack on the way home...
