Crawdaddy’s West Side Grill is like a slice of New Orleans right in the middle of Cookeville. A localfavorite in both the dining and nightlife spot, Crawdaddy offers a diverse menu and lots of outdoor seating in the courtyard and on the balcony of its 100-year-old brick building.
Listen to up-tempo ’60s music; enjoy some of the best food, service and atmosphere in the area. Though many entrées are Cajun-inspired, Crawdaddy’s doesn’t limit itself to Cajun fare. Of course, no meal is complete without dessert, and Crawdaddy’s does dessert in true New Orleans fashion, with house specialty crème brûlée and bread pudding. The wine list is also impressive, with nearly 40 different varieties.
Crawdaddy’s was voted the Best Local Restaurant by readers of the Cumberland Business Journal several years in a row.

- *+Walker Creek Confections
- dedicated to traditional recipes to create small batch, hand crafted, fine candies including Almond Toffee, Gourmet Caramels, and Southern Pecan Pralines...
Family owned and operated, Walker Creek Confections is dedicated to traditional recipes to create small batch, hand crafted, fine candies including Almond Toffee, Gourmet Caramels, and Southern Pecan Pralines. Our candies are hand crafted in our kitchen using only the finest ingredients without preservatives or artificial additives. And we partner locally whenever possible for ingredients that we use.
For several years, we made toffee for family and friends from our home on Walker Creek in Alexandria, TN. After many requests to purchase our candy for gifts, Walker Creek Confections was born. As the business grew through a couple of holiday seasons, demand outgrew our home kitchen.
Today, our kitchen, packaging, and retail store are housed in the historic American Hardware Co. building in Watertown, Tennessee. We also have a retail store in East Nashville, Tennessee at the Idea Hatchery and recently opened in the Franklin Factory.
We invite you to stop by for a visit if you are out this way and come in to sample some of our "Damn Fine Candy"!
Have a Sweet Day!
