This is a quaint, "one-only" small restaurant. Has a full bar and perhaps 10-12 dining tables. The room is rather small, so it gets pretty crowded. Not a great deal of menu options, but the burgs are pretty good. Staff is only fair, the waitresses are very casually dressed, and dont seem all that professional. Place appears like it is... More

Stopped in on a Saturday night and one table was open. Steady stream of people in and out. Atmosphere with character- noisy of course but nice vibe. Small outdoor patio too. Everything we had was good: Fish and Chips, Lola, Neuben and The Moose burger all cooked well and great flavor. Two thumbs up!

We stopped here while driving from Knoxville to Nashville. So glad we did. The food was great and the atmosphere was quaint. We will be back!

Chicken salad on small pretzel buns with Swiss and tomato. Incredible combination if you like chicken salad! Great decor in a small setting adds to the flavor! Good selection of local draft micro brews!

Met with some friends from Nashville on New Year's eve. Cookeville was sort of a half way mark. Heard about this place from my friends son who works in Cookeville some. Had no idea this place existed but we do now and we will return. Had some of the local beer from Red Silo Brewery, located next door. The whole... More

This is a really fun place! I came here with my fiancée back in September and we really enjoyed our meal. We got a few beers and tried a few appetizers: bruschetta, pretzels, and a chicken salad. The salad and bruschetta were really good and very tasty. The pretzels were kind of blah and I wouldn't order them again. The... More

While I was visiting my sister in Cookeville she took me to lunch Father Toms. It was Friday afternoon and there was a good lunch crowd in the place, but we walked right in and stepped up to the bar. The bartender, Jesse, was very pleasant and took his time letting us taste the varieties of beers on tap. Lunch... More

We had lunch at Father Tom's following a bike ride. We enjoyed the tomato soup (a little spicy, but tasty), grilled cheese sandwich and salad. The portions are quite large so my husband and I split the sandwich and salad. Great beer selection on tap too.

Checked out Father Tom's as a central meeting place for friends that were vacationing in Nashville. We drove over from Knoxville and had lunch. Ordered the 1/4 burger and was told I couldn't request how I wanted it done as it was too small. . .sorry I cook 1/4 burgers at home all the time and never have a problem... More
