Not sure why this is getting a low rating. I stopped here because I saw the sign on the interstate. The buffet was fresh and had a large variety. It was all good quality southern cooking. I highly recommend.

The number one thing to know ...& remember.... this is NOT Cracker Barrell!!!!!! This is Country Cooking, like Grandma used to make. Green Beans, Corn, Okra, Mashed Potatoes, Cabbage, Fried Chicken, BBQ Pulled Pork, Baked Beans....a delightful buffet to choose all of these items from, plus more!! You can RETURN as many times as you like, but please use a... More

My fiance and I stopped in because we were intrigued by all the signs on the highway. Surely Miss Loretta Lynn would have a fabulous place for us to dine. Boy were we ever wrong. It's nothing more than a truckstop restaurant with mediocre (at best) food. Time to hire a food and beverage director Miss Lynn....the food on the... More

Had the buffet. Some of the food was pretty good, but the fried chicken was too greasy and it tasted like the oil needed to be changed. Service was lousy, only saw waitress one time and that was when she brought my tea at the beginning, so refills was out of the question. Flys were a problem this day as... More

Well we thought it would be a lark to eat as we were hungry and it is just off the highway. It was a Sunday afternoon and the restaurant was about half full with mostly people getting out of church. The food was a buffet. The mashed potatoes and gravy and fried chicken were good. The rolls and hush puppies... More

Nothing about the food complimented southern cooking. Tasteless and seriously awful. Flies and gnats everywhere. Loretta Lynn's name should not be tied to this dive.

Buffet was good but not great. Chicken was greasy, corn was terrible, mashed potatoes and gravy just ok. Nothing was hot. The cabbage and spinach good. It was an ok meal for $9.99. I also ordered the lemon meringue pie. It was not lemon meringue. It was some kind of lemon cream. It was good for $2.99. I think I... More

Grandma lived 40 minutes from there...We went on a Family Reunion at Holiday Inn Next door.. We ate at restaurant and visited the gift shop and set a spell on porch under the stars.. quiet, serene, happiness, fresh air, happy people talking and laughing and children looking at Buffalo outside.. And for me the mountains {my favorite} right behind us.... More

Stopped here just because a friends daughter works here. Was a good buffet. There was a nice selection of southern food, greens, catfish, cream corn, cooked cabbage and the dinner rolls, perfect!

Food was great. Baked beans on buffet were delish. I had pulled pork sandwich with fries. Yum. Fries tasted just like if you were at a cookout. Fresh cut and deep fried. No like the salt fries at mc Donald's.

Thank Kelly0301
