Salad Bar is very good and your choices for your entree and vegetables is also good. At lunchtime, they also serve soup and sandwiches. Everything we tried was good.

This place is a little different... it's a buffet restaurant with definitely a small town feel. There is not a huge array of choices... you get to choose a meat and a couple of veggies and desert for one price. It was pretty good for a change of pace from the usual places I go. It stays pretty busy so... More

The food at Cooks is delicious and the buffet is clean, has fresh salad fixings and a meat carving station plus free dessert/beverage. Loved the lamb and the chocolate cake. Would definitely eat here again.

Expect a wait...but the food and service is well worth it! Carved roast beef, lamb, turkey pot pie, chicken, fish...and a huge delicious fresh salad bar. And the desserts! Oh My...we will definitely be returning soon.

Located in the center of town near the university, this restaurant/bakery is fabulous! Choose between several options from the food/salad bar or order from the menu. The food is great; staff is attentive; prices are fair.

This was our second visit with friends. It was as good this time. The buffet is very good and the meat selections excellent. Beef, lamb, Turkey, pork and fish. You get one serving of meat and unlimited everything else. We had the turkey, it was very good with fresh stuffing right from the bird. We'll be going back again.

Thank rlewan
