Our goal is to deliver the best meal in town, paired with the best drink in town, in a relaxed fun atmosphere. We are a local restaurant. We strive not to be your cookie cutter chain with big corporate offices. We most likely would be compared to the great TV sitcom CHEERS, with a few twists. Most restaurants refer to their customers as “guests”. We just refer to them as our “friends”. We know most everyone that walks through the front door by first name at least. Our friends that come to Spankies on a regular basis are a diverse group of Cookeville professionals, college students, college professors, locals, of course mixed in with a few modern day pirates…..
Spankies is a place where anyone on any budget can find something they like. Looking for lighter fare? How about a sandwich for less than $8, and yes we still include your side item at that price! In the mood for a filling appetizer? Our tasty Chicken Quesadilla will do the trick nicely. In the mood for something a little heavier? JJ creates a nightly special that rivals anything you will find in Chicago and New Orleans. We fly in the fresh catch, like crab stuffed tilapia or maybe Alaskan Halibut or Gulf Grouper. Our signature dishes like Chicken Spankies or Grouper Dianne, crispy duck or our succulent rack of lamb are house favorites available daily!
Is live entertainment your thing? We have it all. Usually acoustic music during the week, and bigger full bands on the weekend nights. You might find someone famous or someone local; either way check our music section to find out what’s going on! Be sure to sign up for text message updates to find out who’s playing and to be in the know!
Want to watch the game? Yes we have flat screen HDTV’s big and small; We love our Titans, Vols, and Predators! We have a huge selection of channels, including NFL Network, all the ESPN’s and The entire Fox sports system.
We are also a wireless Hot Spot!
Make Spankies part of your daily routine, we would love to have you as part of our family!
