Great family buffet

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.

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.

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...

We recently moved to Jackson TN and looking for different places to eat we found right out from our house a neat little restaurant named Brooksie's Bar tucked in behind a church. It looked so neat and it advertised fish, barbque and chicken, all three being favorites. Upon entering we were shown to a nice table overlooking a pond and... More

The food here is delicious, the service is good, and the atmosphere is homey. The price for the buffet is high, so we don't go there very often. Sometimes we order take out when they run good specials.

My out-of-state friend was told years ago that all the Miss Tennessees over the years come here. He wanted to eat here so I met him here when he was in the area. It was on a Thursday evening. The "Barn" is on a nice little lake (large pond) so the view was very pleasant with trees and ducks. We... More
