Very busy for lunch meant that it was a good choice ... even looked like you could order breakfast for lunch. Service was fast and efficient. We opted for sandwiches with came with a side. The meatloaf sandwich was very good. Recommend this location.

We have enjoyed The Happy Cooker for more than 20 years, even on the most hectic, Georgetown weekends! Love dining outside in the summer - cozy inside in the winter! Delicious eats!

Great little cafe in Georgetown, had French dip and it was great. Outside and inside tables. Soups, salads and sandwiches, all good.

Hello Phillip. I understand your frustration in having to wait. When we have only so many Servers, we can provide only so much service. If we had 200 tables and only 3 Servers, you would not get served for three hours, it's just the math....More
