Cook’s is a wonderful historical place with really great food that brings back family memories. We suggest you order the buffet, to get the whole Cook’s experience.
We took my mom here when she was visiting for our daughter’s wedding. When Art and I were first married Art’s mother Esther first introduced us to the Holiday House in Winter Park. It was our family tradition for many celebrations. Now we are so glad to share our traditions at Cook’s.
Bob and Willa Cook founded the original Holiday House Restaurant serving prime steaks, tossed salads and gigantic Idaho baked potatoes. Bob developed a special buffet style serving hand carved aged beef, fresh turkey, lamb, and ham. To accompany the meat choices were freshly prepared vegetables, salads, and homemade desserts. There were 14 Holiday House Restaurants throughout Central Florida with the one we frequented in Winter Park on Aloma which is now First Watch.
The food is fresh, delicious and served by a friendly staff. The desserts are remarkable, to say the least. Go check out those wonderfully, big cakes! The fresh salad bar is a great spread having fruits, and a variety of homemade salads, dressings, and sauces. And of course, the warm homemade bread is a favorite, making you want to ask for more. The homemade iced-tea is amazing and the coffee is smooth and flavourful. SEE MENU
Cook’s is in a 100-year-old building, their family’s former residence. You can even take a behind the scenes tour of the kitchen if you like, business permitting of course.
We hope you are able to visit Cook’s some time to enjoy a classy and homey place with such good food. We hope to see you there
