I have eaten here several times when visiting the university. I have never been disappointed. I love the mahi mahi wrap. The chicken Caesar salad is excellent. We've had several appetizer- gator bites, crab cakes and fried green tomatoes. All delicious! It's a fun setting. The only negative is that the services tends to be a little slow, but the... More

I have visited this location several times over the past few years and lately I have seen a decline in both service and quality. Two years ago I would have recommended this place to anyone visiting Cookeville. My visit before last there were only 3 tables of people in the restaurant and it took us 45 minutes to get out...

My hubby and I ate here years ago and it was awful. Anyway, they have fixed the problem or it has new owners. Love the upstairs bar area. very cozy. The shrimp dip is awesome.

Upon arriving I was initially turned off by the snooty greeter, who seemed to be put off with having to find a table for one; it was a weeknight and there were plenty of tables available. Go...

We stopped here for lunch as we had heard good things about this restaurant. The atmosphere reminds me of some of the good restaurants in New Orleans and the food is just as good. I had blackened chicken breast and seasoned fries. We had crab cakes as appetizers and they were delicious. Bread pudding for dessert finished a wonderful meal.... More

This restaurant offers a shaded, enclosed patio, good for even chilly autumn days if there's sunshine, but shade enough for summer. The waitstaff serves with manners, care, and cheer. The menu has a wide enough listing, and all the food at our table was enjoyed thoroughly. No complaints; only satisfaction. We talked with old friends for almost 3 hours, which... More

The restaurant has four great spaces - indoor, outdoor, and an upstairs. The decor and atmosphere is very nice. The drinks were good and the food was excellent.
