This one takes up about 3 former store fronts in the small downtown. Friends had suggested I have the cat fish and onion rings. Fortunately, my server steered me to the "small" order of onion rings which is not small at all. It's more than enough for at least 3 people. The catfish was nicely breaded and cooked. The 2...

Food was fabulous and Tammy our server was excellent! The rest of the staff seemed friendly and welcoming! I would give 5 stars but prices were a little high, but for excellent service and food it's worth the price! Be ready to take home left overs! The atmosphere was cozy and dress code could be formal or causal wear. For... More

The food was delicious, best I've had in a while. Prime rib was perfectly cooked. Best onion rings ever!! However, I probably wouldn't have eaten if I had witnessed what I had from one of the wait staff after dinner was over. She threw the wrapping to the toilet paper on the floor, didn't change out the roll, just sat... More

Went on a whim on a Friday night. Nice place, busy. Had great vinegar slaw and a Ribeye that was pretty tasty. Wife ordered Crab Cakes that were deep fried and not good at all. They were gracious and took it off the bill and gave her a free dessert. Little on the pricey side.

Last night was my fourth trip to Stookey's. It was just as good as the other 3. The service is always excellent and the food is great. The menu has a nice selection. I am not a big fan of whole catfish but had it the last time we were here and it was better than I expected. Last night... More

My wife and I ordered the prime rib, which wasn't inexpensive and was very disappointed. I have been going to Stookey's for several years and have always been impressed with all of their food, however this was not the case. The quality of the prime rib was sub-par and had very little to no seasoned taste. Stick with the onion... More
