My family and I decided to dine at Cobb n Co last night and no regrets. Although it was quite busy with a few parties. Our Host was a very pleasant young man who seated and took our orders, and a wonderful young lady who I believe was the manager made us feel special which I am grateful for. Great... More

Haven't been for awhile but I have to say we experienced excellent service and a very pleasant meal. The restaurant was packed with two big functions and despite that staff coped very well. A nice evening

Meal was cold, steak overdone and the wait was too long 1 hour 20 minutes. Dont go here if you are hungry. Shocking service. Had to wait over an hour for water to be brought to us.
