Helpful friendly staff. Amazing atmosphere and fantastic food.
Steaks so lively you could cut them with a plastic knife.

We came here for a dinner last night as we have a few friends living Torquay way! This is the second time we’ve been here for dinner now and it won’t be the last!

Great to see a few people taking on the 64oz steak challenge! Unfortunately we left half way through so never got to find out if they managed to finish!

Great, fun restaurant! Would definitely recommend!

As we were on annual leave this week from work, instead of cooking we decided to go out mid-week and decided on one of our Torquay favourites - Cotton Eyed Joes.

We have been here on numerous occasions over the years from big work group nights out, family nights and just us two.

The atmosphere is just right with a good mix of decor and music to match the theme.

The food is out of this world - fantastic choice, fantastic quality and great value. The portions are big whether that is starters or mains - you just need to decide whether you can fit in a dessert too!

You can always take on the 64oz steak challenge - no idea how people could do it!

This week it was very quiet with only three other groups in there when we arrived - a couple, a family group and four young lads!

When it was down to the four lads something happened with one of their meals so a lot of shouting and swearing and they walked out without paying. They had already eaten starters, had drinks and 3 of the four had already eaten some of their main courses. The owner had already apologised and offered to take food off the bill, but they went. He came over and apologised for the noise and commotion and we had a conversation around how society has changed over the years - and not for the better unfortunately.

Despite this the whole evening was great - could not fault Cotton Eyed Joes at all. I think the group with the issue had no intention of paying from the outset, and again others suffer the losses.

Would I visit again - you bet!

Decided to go out for a meal to celebrate a birthday - we all fancied a steak. Went here again and had a lovely meal with excellent steaks, sides and exceptional and attentive service from Charlotte. Highly recommended by me

My daughter loves anything American and decided that for her celebration meal she wanted to go to Cotton Eyed Joe's in Torquay following her limo drive around the area.

There were 17 of us and we were very pleased with the table decorations that they had put around although we had brought some of our own as well and they kindly offered to help with getting our very large '16' helium balloons up!!

Their service was fantastic and nothing was too much bother - you could see that they just wanted us to have a great time with our family and friends.

To make life easier we would buy our drinks separately form the bar so that we just had the food bill to divide between us which was great.

The food was absolutely fantastic - if I'm honest I only expected average quality but good tasting American themed food but I was very surprised. I had the fillet steak which was cooked to perfection and just melted in the mouth......

My wife had a meal which contained prawns and they were huge in number and in size - fantastic.

Everyone in our party commented on how great the food was and the portions were more than ample.

We had brought our own cake and they very kindly looked after this and brought out to our table after we had eaten - they even announced my daughters birthday and had the whole restaurant singing Happy Birthday!!

A great evening, superb atmosphere and fantastic food. Drinks prices were normal with nice variety to choose from.

All the staff were very attentive and we could not fault it.

Considering the age ranges were from 11 to 78, all had a fantastic time and I would thoroughly recommend a visit. We shall certainly go back.
