The cookhouse used to be delicious- every year it keeps getting worse. The service is extremely slow and the restaurant as a whole feels/looks dirty. I would recommend that management makes it more of a priority to keep it tidy. Definitely should hire additional bus...More

I found most items on the menu to be fat or calorie type of foods, I mean it all sounded good, but if you're on a diet or conscious of heavy foods you might have to really work the menu.

Really good barbecue, pulled pork is great. Try their Cookhouse Ale, it is a favorite. The bar is lively with tv's for your favorite game. Good place to meet up with friends for a cocktail or dinner.
