We took a drive to Deland and stopped in here because of the great reviews on line. We were not disappointed. We had a wonderful lunch and because it was my birthday I got a free piece of their delicious cake. Our server was helpful and friendly,also. We would definitely recommend Cook's and would stop here again when in Deland.

We love a good salad bar, and this one didn't disappoint! We opted for the serving of meat with ours, and I chose the roasted turkey. It was moist and flavorful. I could see this being a regular stop when we are in the area! Great service, great price, and great food! (the desserts looked AMAZING, but we were too... More

My wife and I used to eat here when this was the Holiday House - many very fond memories. But since we've not lived in DeLand in several decades, we were sad to learn that Holiday House no longer existed, and was now Cook's. we were pleasantly surprised to find out that this was exactly as we had remembered the...

Always consistent food and a good value. Their desserts are huge and the salad bar is fresh and clean. I would recommend this place, clean and friendly, parking is tight.

Their buffet is second to none for quality and price and the deserts are legendary. Be sure to pick up the history handout while you are there. One of my first stops when in DeLand.

My daughter and I were excited to go to this historic restaurant only to be humiliated by the short-haired, blond cashier. After eating our salad, we followed some ladies from another table up to get our meat portion (only one) at the buffet. While waiting the cashier came up to us and made my daughter and I go to the...

The Lamb is to die for, it is cooked perfectly and doesn't have the wild taste like game meat usually does. The workers were friendly, we had a wonderful time. they also have perfectly seasoned vegis and the deserts are works of art. I went for the Lamb but they have a variety of meats. wonder resturant.
