Good place for lunch, dinner or just to have a beer. Lunchtime you place your order and the call your name. At dinner it's full table service. I especially like their oriental chicken salad.

Good food, good service. Staff are engaging attentive and service is timely. Food is always excellent. They usually have live music outside on Friday nights and it is a good place to hang out with friends. Pretty low key place, good vibes.

Spankies is the place to be in Cookeville on Tuesday nights. They also have cheesy bread that's to die for.

This is a great place for locals to go. Depending on what time of night, it could be a older crowd or turn into a college crowd. The menu gives a lot of variety and most all on the menu is good. If you are...More
