My family and I were traveling through and decided to try the Cookhouse for dinner. Generally, we like little places like this. The food was not good. The service was okay. Everything that we had tasted like it had cinnamon or the like in it....More

Stopped by for a late afternoon breakfast. The host and server were pleasant. The menu choices for breakfast and lunch are plentiful and reasonable priced. Our meal was delicious which consisted of a salad bacon and pancakes was delicious.

Country fare. Large... affordable servings. Good Leek potato soup or chicken noodle are always free with entrees and made fresh daily. Booth seats are worn out but its a local favorite. Corn bread and vegtable soup is not my favorite, however so I'd avoid them....More

Can't go wrong here if you're hungry. The portions are very generous. It's a diner trying to be a restaurant. It's dated. If you're going for atmosphere this isn't the place. If you want lots of home cooked food, then this is the place for...More
