My family and I visited the Cookhouse with a friend who boasted that they has the best breakfasts around. She was right! The portions were large and they had a very large selection of offerings. Corned beef hash and grits to name a few. The service was excellent!!

Never thought you can ruin an egg but they did. Gave them a second chance after a terrible supper meal but breakfast was even worse.

We had a Groupon back some time ago and went here. The food prices are really low, the food is great and the menu selections are huge!! I love to have breakfast so now we go here every Sunday for breakfast! It has become a regular weekly thing for break fast. The food is always excellent!

They have a good breakfast selection. Service is good. It definitely beats the long wait at IHOP. Clean restrooms.

One of the best places in Lake Norman that I love to eat at. Family friendly, decent prices, and delicious, homemade food done right. I absolutely love that they offer breakfast all the time!

Tasty food....wraps, biscuits, veggies, just about everything plus breakfast served all day. Everything we've had is always tasty and fresh! Good service.

Breakfast around here seems to be either really expensive brunchy places or dives. We were hoping this would be in the middle, kinda like a nicer PikNik's, but it was disappointing. Everything was bland. I would not recommend it.

Four of us went there for breakfast. They do delicious omelets, great pancakes and sausage, and really, really good biscuits and gravy. The coffee is very good, and the wait staff was quick and efficient. We will go back when we are in Cornelius again.

The food was good. How can you screw up eggs & hash browns? The coffee and biscuits were the highlights. It was hard to get refills on the coffee. We actually had to go and look for our waitress. She was the most unfriendly,downright crabby person we've encountered in North Carolina.
