Grilled Meatloaf

The Grilled Meatloaf is a consistent favorite of mine, along with the rolls and any of the desserts! You will enjoy a good southern meal in a beautiful, peaceful setting that reminds you of days gone by.

Grilled Meatloaf

Enjoyed a wonderful meal with my boyfriend. I haven't been to cookie jar since me and my dad came. We always loved the cookies jar. He passed away after a heart transplant in 2013😞 I thought after my dad was gone I would never enjoy the wonderful food and peaceful atmosphere. So thankful I was able to come again and enjoy the best food I have ever had. Thanks for awesome service food employees. Definitely will be back soon . Teresa Whited Rossville Ga.

Chicken & Dumplings

I love this place, it's atmosphere and quality of food and selection of desserts. My daughter was disappointed however with her " loaded potato " it was a potato with a few bacon sprinkles on and slice of American cheese not melted. With that said the country fried steak did not disappoint nor did my chicken and dumplings. We were there for my birthday and I loved that everyone got the flavor of cake they wanted along with my choice of chocolate on chocolate! Awesome experience as usual.

Grilled Meatloaf

So so soooo very good! We love the grilled meatloaf. It has an amazing taste, texture, and the grill puts it over the top. All the sides, fresh baked breads, and of course the desserts are more than worth the 1.5hr drive from Alabama. Our kiddos love the animals and play area too.

Chicken & Dumplings

The Pork Roast on Wednesday is my favorite dish but everything I have ever ordered is delicious.. the desserts are to die for and the view and service is top notch . If you haven't been to the Cookie Jar yet you need to make the trip. It is worth it.

You can get catfish grilled or fried. They are both great. I usually get the grilled. I have not found anywhere that is better. I also love their chicken livers which are wonderful. Let's face it I haven't had anything I don't like, I just like some better than others. Now don't get me started on the deserts. We are so full after our meal that desert has to go home with us. LOL we don't get a piece of pie or cake that would be a waste, just get the whole thing.

Chicken & Dumplings taste just like my Mom used to make! I live over an hour away and travel the distance just to eat them! While there, I gotta have dessert!

Grilled Catfish (1)

The Catfish was superb it had wonderful grill lines and was seasoned and cooked perfectly. Our server Andrea was a total delight, friendly, helpful and prompt on every aspect of our meal. This was our first visit to the Cookie Jar Cafe and definitely will not be our last.. My Catfish and three sides filled me up so did not try one of the deserts but seeing them in the display will bring me back just for desert. Great atmosphere and location a definite hit in my book.

Friday - Chicken Casserole

The Cookie Jar is an amazing find! Since moving to the area in July we have visited multiple times and brought several friends, all of whom agree the view is breathtaking and the food is worth the drive. Each visit the food has been delicious. Our favorite menu item is the chicken casserole, which is so moist and flavorful. Our favorite desserts are the tortes, especially the strawberry and peanut butter. We leave with cupcakes to have with our morning coffee each visit! Such a treat!

One Meat & Two Sides

The menu gave a lot of hard choices. The food was excellent.l, right down to the last morsel of cornbread. The dessert was to die for! The staff was all friendly and very helpful. The atmosphere was that of "home", from way back when, peaceful and tranquil, not a care in the world. I highly recommend The Cookie Jar Cafe.

Carrot Cake

The absolute BEST carrot cake I have ever had! So moist and the cream cheese is just the right amount of sweet. I could eat a whole cake but the giant slice you get is more than enough. And the most amazing prices too! We love the Cookie Jar Cafe and all they serve! :)

Hamburger Steak

My wife and I visited this restaurant for the first time with our two children. We were seated immediately around 4 p.m. All of our food was spectacular, but I have to brag on the country fried steak. It was the best meal I have ever had from a restaurant! It came topped with a pile of sauteed onions that made the dish amazing. I ordered it with mashed potatoes, fried okra, slaw and green beans. You could tell the potatoes were real and not instant like a lot of restaurants prepare. All of the sides were delicious and the rolls and cornbread were scrumptious as well! I gave my compliments to the chef because that meal was simply amazing. And of course, we had to take some delicious desserts home with us! I will definitely be back and will refer everyone I know!

Everything is great at the Cookie Jar! I particularly love their catfish as a main dish and they have the best coconut pie (don't tell my mother that). This little hidden gem is an awesome place to eat and to take your children to see real farm animals. Love, Love, Love the Cookie Jar!

Chocolate on Chocolate

As you ride slowly up a gravel path, an all too familiar aroma of baking cornbread and sweet rolls soon fill the foggy air. Upon strolling into the quaint country dining room, you are tossed back into your childhood days gazing upon over 100 cookie jars looking for a delicious treat. The hustle and bustle of responsive servers snags your order as you enjoy staring out at the breathtaking views of the near winding mountain sides falling into the valley. The prompt delivery of your fresh hot meal consumes you as you pick your brain thinking of all the sweet treats you get to decide from. Finally choosing a slice of chocolate pie or strawberry tort, you leave feeling not only full from a delicious meal and laughter but relaxed from an overall excellent and cozy dining experience.
