All though we love O'charleys prime rib and always go there for it, we have had several disappointing visits to this particular restaurant in Cookeville. The steaks were cut badly, full of gristle and did not come close to the quality we expected from O'charleys. We have eaten at many other O'charleys in other cities and states and never had... More

Great food. Had the plank salmon, steak, and pork chop. All good with a good price for all you got. Service was friendly and prompt.

Wilted salad lettuce, cold chicken fingers, and missing bacon bits on your Southern Fried Chicken Salad? Not the usual O Charley's lunch experience on 9/11/16.

Service here is good. O'Charleys in general is a good place to eat. The only problem at this lication is that there are so many choices.

Each of us ordered a different beef dinner. Sirloin, prime rib and the special blackened sirloin. We were very satisfied. Fresh salads & dressing, hot rolls, and huge baked potatoes.

Reviewed this restaurant months ago and was excited to tell you that their black bean burger was really good. As a "wannabe" vegetarian a good black bean burger is something to be excited about. Returned to find it is gone.Good thing I like their crab cakes. Server suggested the broccoli as a side and it was very good. Note to... More

Food is always good at this brand and this store was no different. The first impression at any restaurant is made by the person who welcomes you. The group assigned this task was a bit too young to be effective and seemed a bit unprepared.

We go to O'Charley's every couple of months because the food is always good. I have never had a bad meal or experience here. The food is always good and well prepared and hot. Never have room for desert so I can't comment on them.

First time at this restaurant while traveling. Menu was big, and service was good. We both had salads, my husband the Cobb (full size was huge) and I had the California Salad 1/2 size. Both were fresh and filled with all the goodies promised in the menu. The obligatory yeast rolls were provided (they are too addictive), and we were... More
