If you're on I-40, this is a convenient stop between Nashville and Memphis. The owner has created a nice little campus with shops, museum type attractions and a restaurant. The food is buffet style country fare. If you like Cracker Barrel, you'll like the Old Country Store. There's an ice cream shop inside the restaurant - they sell old style... More

They have a wonderful buffet and great staff. My tea glass was never empty. Located close to the interstate. Have a wide variety of food to choose from on the buffet so there is something for everyone.

I'd eaten in the Village's buffet in past years, and enjoyed the home cooking and old-timey cozy atmosphere, along with the charming array of gifts and other items available in the adjacent Old Country Store. This time, I didn't stick around to dine, as the place seemed very different, sadly - the store had far fewer items for sale, the... More

Whether you view it as tourist trap or not, it was a very educational and entertaining way to spend time while waiting for my next road stop. Additionally, admission fees are very reasonable. The tourists shops have quirky souveniers and overall fun stuff to peruse. There is also an art gallery on the village complex, where I was lucky enough... More

I have been to this location many times and all I can say about it, is expect to be disappointed. The entire village is home to one or two overpriced souvenir shops, professional offices, and more professional offices. Even the big steamliner in the center… is a Law Office! Of course, there is the Casey Jones museum and the Mini... More

The food here is pretty good, I do not really care for buffets, but this one has lots of variety and is well stocked. It is traditional country cooking, fried fish, chicken, greens, cracklin cornbread, etc. It is expensive but we received coupons when we were there to use for another visit that knocked 2.00 off each buffet. Of course... More

Stopped here on our way from Nashville to Memphis since it was on the way and I always liked the story of Casey Jones. It was worth visiting to walk through the museum and Casey Jones house, and get your picture with the train replica. It was not expensive to get in. Casey Jones was an American hero though and...
