Description: Please add this restaurant. I found it when we stayed in Port Gibson, MS. it is about 8 miles out of town. It is on yelp. You can see it here: http://www.yelp.com/biz/old-country-store-lorman-2, it is also on roadfood.com. It is very inexpenisive and the food is very good. Moreover, the owner is a character. He sings to you. The waitresses treat you like relatives. It is truly a wonderful experience.

Stumbled on the Old Country Store reviews on Trip Advisor while driving Rt. 61 on the Natchez Trace Highway on our twice yearly drive to & from NJ & Mexico. Wasn't sure what we'd find inside when we pulled up, but glad we decided to check it out. The name says it all. Very unique. The food is all homemade... More

We ate at the Old Country Store and enjoyed every bite. Besides the 'best fried chicken in the world' (Mr D said this - he could be right!), the buffet had a wide assortment of vegetables. We grow and cook our own vegetables, so we are kind of fussy about how they taste. Three different kind of greens, lima beans,... More

This is a buffet style restaurant. The fried chicken really is as good as everyone says. However, you normally have to wait for fresh batches to be put out and they are quickly devoured. It's a bit pricey for a country buffet and they don't tell you, but the dessert is not included. There was an odd smell the day... More

I had no idea that this place existed until I went with a college class to try Mr. D's fried chicken. Let me tell ya, BEST fried chicken you will eat!! Well worth the drive.

The best fried chicken ever. It's buffet all you can eat. And they have chicken, ribs great vegetables. The owner, Arthur is a gracious and fun man. He sings and will come to your table and sing. He walks around and speaks to everyone. I think the buffet is around $11.00 and worth every penny! This is a must restaurant... More

We had read about this restaurant online but hesitated since the feature is the fried chicken. Since we were passing by I called the owner to see if vegetarians could enjoy a meal and he easily convinced me to give it a try. So happy we did not pass this by. We enjoyed several items on the buffet, salad, green... More

The restaurant is in a store. Store sales all kinds of old stuff. Needs a lot of cleaning and organizing to do. Nothing has a price on it, its a place where you bargain. The restaurant can be placed differently to give it a good feel. The fried chicken is really good. Corn bread could be better. Desserts are good... More

Food is good. Chicken is incredibly tasty. Good veggies. Surprising other additions--fried pork chops, turkey and dressing, fresh fruit. Owner is a proud guy. Just talks and sings a bit much.

Three couples of us went yesterday for lunch at the Old Country Store. We arrived just as the chicken was coming out of the kitchen. I don't know what their secret recipe is, but it is a great one!!! We enjoyed the lunch and even had a song while we were eating. The cobbler and ice cream for dessert topped... More

Very good buffet and quaint items on display. Don't pass up seeing what is in the casket. A very good eating and resting place if you are traveling from Vicksburg to Natchez exploring all of the historical sites.
