My friends & I ate there on January 2nd and the selection on the buffet plus the taste of the food was great. We sat beside the wall of windows with a relaxing view of the pond, ducks, squirrels, birds...you get the picture. :) The food did not taste bland as often happens on a buffet. You need to know...

Hi. The first time we went to Brooksie's, every single thing we tasted was really good. Their dumplings were almost as good as my grandmother Potts's. This was at lunch. We went back for dinner soon after, and we couldn't believe it was the same place. Even the dumplings, which probably started life frozen, were unseasoned and watery. I am... More

This buffet is has plenty to offer in the way of volume, so strap on your feed bag. The baked beans and sour cream are very good. The barbecue is pretty average by West Tennessee standards. The pork barbecue is pulled and the ribs are a dry rub. Both good but quite average. The atmosphere is rustic/country and if you... More

We had the Sunday Buffet and it was pretty good. The Buffet offered turkey and dressing, ribs, fish, pulled pork, pork chops, mashed potatoes, green beans, corn, and plenty of other side dishes. It included a salad bar and dessert bar too. The view of a pond/lake was beautiful and made for nice ambiance while enjoying dinner. The buffet on... More

Food was ok; I think it's over price... For my family of 7 we paid $125.00 for buffet. With 4 being 10 and under!! When we usually spend between $65-$80 food better tasting food. We won't be eating there again as a family.

Well seasoned vegetables pleased me here. I loved the blackeyed peas and spinach. Had the fried catfish and ate a lot. Excellent service. Restaurant is hidden off the road and not easy to find without GPS. But lots of people did the Tuesday evening I was there. Fun atmosphere. OK, it's country, but not the same oh same oh. You...

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. They didn't offer a senior citizen discount which... 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
