In the area to visit some of the attractions and asked the bartender at Goodspeed Opera House for luncheon suggestions. Recommended the Cooking Co and a visit there confirmed his choice. For either take out or eat-in, the choices are numerous. A travel buddy and I decided to share Orange Chipotle-Glazed Chicken, Salmon Cakes, and Fettucine Salad w/Gorgonzola, Basil &... More

I have been going to The Cooking Company for years. The place is run so perfectly with the best help, selections and quality. There are no shortcuts in any of the dishes. I usually get the salad bar because you pick out everything from beans, chopped eggs, you name it. The daily specials are inventive and wonderfully different. I am... More

I've never eaten in their dining area, but over the past 10 years their take-out never disappoints!! Their creative salads, sides, and main dishes have always been mouth watering for me and my hubby. The menu specials are super whether for lunch or dinner. I especially love the way they cook salmon. There's plenty of dishes to choose from to... More

I like the food. Clearly they have nailed the way to sell food - desplaying the dishes with lots of color and good lighting. I like to get a main dish and grilled veggies.

When you don't want to make dinner this is the place to stop. I love it because it's right on the way home. The food here just seems healthier than the typical takeout (I don't know if it is). It's not greasy or fried but I suspect it still has quite a bit of fat. Their salads are great so... More

I stop in and pick up food to take home one or two times a week. I have yet to get a bad meal. The food is really good. My only complaint is the expense. They can be pretty expensive.

Service rude, food not great-who puts a thick layer of cheese on pulled pork...adds weight? and mustard has horseradish-they don't tell you this. Otherwise cute shop and they have stonewall kitchen stuff for sale.
