We got a full Mufalletta sandwich with spiral chips for two to split and I got the Reuben sandwich with chips. Everything was good.

We arrived at 5 pm on a weekday and were seated right away. Ordered Caribbean black been dip to start off, it is very good and comes with enough dip and tortilla chips for 2-3 people to share.

Having frequented Cooty Brown's for the entire time it has been in business, I can say that the food is reliably constant and always very good. There is a consistency that can be counted on. It has really never disappointed!

This is one of my very favorites! Love the atmosphere. Never been disappointed in anything I have tried from the menu. Lots to choose from but not an overwhelming book! Fun place to have a meal and get with friends.

I ordered the grilled tiger shrimp. They were not tiger shrimp! Medium shrimp at best! Good spice on them. Brussel sprouts weren't good and the slaw was cabbage and carrots, no dressing. I have eaten here many times, first time to be dissatisfied. Service was very good.

Had the hot pastrami sandwich. Nice crusty bread wish a nice bite of mustard. Served with a pickle. Had a cup of tomato basil soup and a slice of key lime pie. Awesome.
