Neat Restaurant and Good Food

Neat restaurant find in Jackson, TN. We took a group of (10) senior adults. Although, the food was good, not exceptional, and a little pricey for the selection. Service was not as good as it should have been, considering it was mid afternoon and they weren't busy. Overall though, food was good... read more

This locally visited favorite is a buffet! There are many things on the menu just like a Golden Corral. While it is a very southern flavored restaurant it does not meet that standard. I thought it would be great but it was very bad. The only thing going for it is it is a eat all you want type of... More

We went there before my daughter graduated from Union University was we had a large group. The fried chicken was really good and tender, the catfish was pretty good, the pineapple fritters were wonderful! Most of the food is fried so healthy is not on the menu. The atmosphere was good and the staff friendly. The price was a little... More

We chose the smaller buffet that was real good. Fried chicken nwas crusty outside, but moist and juicy inside. Some of the best spaghetti I've had- had lots of tasty meat sauce with just a few noodles. Ecellent selections on salad bar with fresh items that were plentiful. Nice to have a cheaper option for us seniors, and others that... More

The food is good, need a bigger selection. It is a bit over priced. $18.00 per person with a drink. The country vegetables are good. The hush puppies are no where near the quality of catfish cabin.

The variety and quality of country food was good. Our server was attentive and helpful. Even though we were the last customers of the night, they made us seem as welcome as the first.

Always the good first. Good service, still nice setting and plenty of good vegetables( the okra-tomato dish is very good). The catfish was good as well. The Bad - the price is very unreasonable for the quality of meats on the buffet. Very small fried shrimp, hamburger steak, chicken tenders, fried chicken(way over cooked to the point it was tuff...

Decent, but not exciting food. Lots of quantity. The fried fish was really good, but the chicken and dumplings were disappointing...
