Restaurant Week is sponsored by IWC and supports the charitable programs and services provided by Cookeville Regional Charitable Foundation.

Several other U.S. cities including Charlotte, Nashville, and Austin have built similar restaurant week events into hugely popular culinary experiences and significant tourist draws. Cookeville Regional Restaurant Week has been tailed to showcase the region’s best local restaurants and highlight the culinary scene in the Upper Cumberland.
Restaurants will offer unique entrées, combinations of entrées and desserts or appetizers, and other specialty dishes at set prices of $15 for lunch and $25 for dinner. Enjoy one, or both, daily while giving back to the community.
