Southern food classics and a steam train - good place to stop for an hour or so

We were driving from Memphis to Nashville and decided to stop for lunch here. I read the other reviews and I think some of them had different expectations of what was here. I... read more

If you're in Jackson, it's worth stopping for by a short bit, but don't go out of your way to stop here. The Casey Jones Museum is kind of interesting. It's nothing fancy- a small town museum with a short video and lots of info and memorabilia about Casey Jones and the famous train accident. A tour of his home... More

Parents and I went here two days in a row for the wonderful Southern buffet. Service was great, food was fresh and plentiful on the buffet - SO many choices! Everything from cracklin' corn cakes to liver and onions, meatloaf, fried chicken and catfish fillets, pulled pork, tons of veggies, good salad section, banana pudding, peach and blackberry cobblers...and VERY...

We were driving from Memphis to Nashville and decided to stop for lunch here. I read the other reviews and I think some of them had different expectations of what was here. I think the rail museum was fine for a walk around and being nearly 60 was of sentimental value as I remember the black and white TV show.... More

My husband loves this place, but I think it is below average. The salad bar is my reason for three stars. The food is southern fare but bland. We have been a few times and always had good service. The general store and ice cream shop are nice.

This museum tells the true story of Casey Jones, who gave his life at the control of a locomotive to save his train passengers. His original house was moved next to the museum, and is a must for history buffs who like old homes. Don't forget to check out the Old Country Store Restaurant in the same village...you will be...

The breakfast buffet was very disappointing. The pancakes were rubbery. There was no butter except for the oil/faux butter on the buffet. Not sure why but the sausage was gritty. The potatoes were rock hard -- not from being overcooked but from being stale. The two of us did not enjoy it $17 worth. (2 buffets and 1 soft drink)... More

The word village is very misleading. There is not much here other than a knock off Cracker Barrel restaurant - but at least Cracker Barrel offers menu options that aren't deep fried. All parties must agree on buffet or cafeteria style since seating is in separate areas. After seeing food selection, we opted not to stay for lunch. Lines were... More

Good museum - mostly all on Casey Jones, formation of the museum, and some on the part the RR played during the Civil War. You could also climb aboard an engine, much like the one Casey Jones ran. Great gift shop in the museum. Included in the admission price (which was very reasonable) is a tour of his home, which... More

Casey Jones village was within walking distance from our hotel so we decided to check it out. The food at the buffet was really pretty good. It was homestyle southern cooking. The old time decor was fun to look at. There was a general store(with lots of candy) and ice cream shop. Most things were closed by the time we... More
