“Comfort food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

Like others, we were visiting the area and wanted to support and sample a local family restaurant. It didn't disappoint. The service was fast and friendly. Menu was Cracker-Barrel-esque, food had that home-cooked taste. This is not gourmet food and shouldn't be rated as such. I gave it 4 stars because if you're looking for comfort food, this is the place.

“Great Christmas Party Scene!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

Tonight was the Christmas Party for our Club at The Old Fort and both the atmosphere & the food was great! They have a simple menu, but there is enough variety to suit everyone's fancy. Another reason I like them is because they have Pepsi products, which they can be hard to find at restaurants in Cleveland. My husband had chicken fried steak and I ordered the honey mustard chicken. The mustard was a tad overpowering, but tasted good when I took some of the excess mustard off. It came over a bed of rice , which I did not care for , but then again I don't like wild rice. The bread assortment included cornbread muffins and rolls, which were quite tasty. My side salad was larger than most side salads I've received. The staff was very nice & worked hard to satisfy our requests. All in all, a good night. Last, the Old Fort has been in business for many, many years even though this was my first visit.

“Cafeteria food at best.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

Read the reviews prior to visiting the area. Was looking forward to a great meal. Ordered the special plus two sides. Hubby ordered meat and three. Food was out in 5 min. Not cooked fresh. Meal was mushy tasteless and could best be served in a hospital cafeteria...at best. Will never...never be back. Yuck!

“"Nice local restaurant"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

We like to support a local family restaurant instead of a chain. Old Fort did not disappoint and we have visited several times on our way thru Cleveland, Tn. Daily specials, regular favorites on the menu and plenty of choices. A local favorite!
