Had an amazing home style meal! My mouth has re-watered thinking about it. Food was fresh, delicious and exactly what I was craving after a few hours on the road. Served promptly by 'James P' who gave outstanding customer service, was extremely polite and a little bit of local knowledge went a long way. Will visit again.

We eat in Cookeville frequently. We had not been here lately so decided to give it a try. The service seemed better than our last visit and the menu had definitely improved. The rolls are yummy, as always. The only complaint was the food was served medium warm. My husband had to send his back to be re-heated. I would... More

We try to stop here whenever we are passing through Cookeville. This is the best O'Charley's in the chain, in my opinion. We sat at a table in the bar and had Reece as our server. He was excellent as usual. What a delight to see someone enjoy his job. We had the Carolina BBQ chicken sandwich and it was... More

Great restaurant for a reasonably priced dinner. Total there were four of us having dinner. We requested a quiet area so we could talk and we're accommodated. On Wednesday, with a dinner, they offer a free dessert. The French Silk Pie was delicious, as was the meal. Particularly if you are traveling on I-40 through Middle TN, this is a... More

We dine at O'Charley's often and at locations all over. You often "take for granted" things that you get accustomed to. We were traveling across the state and stopped at the same restaurant at a location other than Cookeville. I would rate it a 7-7.5..still good but not a "10" as the one in Cookeville. The service was slow throughout... More

We used to go to this location constantly, but hadn't been in about seven months. Pleasantly surprised. New items on the menu that were good. I would recommend the Grilled Chicken w/Chutney Sauce that comes with mashed sweet potatoes and one side of choice. Our server, Brandon, was always one of the best, and he was still the same. We'll... More

The potato soup was delicious as always. My wife and I ordered the Low Country Shrimp and it was very good. We love the rolls, they are almost like dessert, The only complaint I have is that where my wife was sitting, the servers bumped into her chair every time they passed by her. It got rather annoying, and there... More

We were seated right a way we went in for a mom and daughter lunch. Our drinks and rolls where brought promptly. it only took about 10 min for our food to arrive, hot and ready the Chicken Tenders are the best.

Met there with family yesterday on a trip to grandkid's basketball game. Ordered lunch and Regina [server] informed me of a special "prime rib pepper soup" they had made with left over prime rib......it was wonderful. You can always count on them to have excellent food and service with a smile.

All of the employees are very friendly. Your waiter or waitress are "johnny on the spot" with your needs. You are greeted by each employee when you come in contact with them. Would recommend to anyone.
