“A little dissappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013 via mobile

I tried the breakfast buffet, it was average
I tried the lunch, again just average.
The best meal that I got there and my family agreed was the buffet to go...located in the back room of Casey Jones. Kind of hidden, located near the restrooms.

“Country cooking, souvenirs galore, and a train museum!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Complex is a Top-10 tourist attraction in Tennessee. Browse in the Old Country Store while waiting to be seated in the café. In among the period antiques and player pianos you will find an expansive assortment of jam and jellies, candy galore, cookbooks, t-shirts, and most any kind of Tennessee souvenir your heard desires. Enter the café and prepare for a feast of Southern cooking. There is a large salad bar, and the all you can eat hot bar is stacked with fried chicken, chops, seasoned vegetables, and more country fixin's . Hot corn cake is served right off the grill!
Train buffs will want to check the hours of operation and take in the Casey Jones Train Museum, a one of a kind exhibit honoring engineer Casey Jones, who called Jackson his home at the time he made his famous last run. (Fee for museum) Casey's home has been restored and rests on the museum grounds, along with a train engine, coal car, and caboose of the type he made famous. Casey Jones Village is a one of a kind attraction you won't want to miss!

“Food is good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013

The food is good a bit high for what you get . Especially for teen ware all eaters . I would never take a child who was a small eater there. Clean service is a bit slow. But fair Feel they have it to crowded for wheel chairs and walkers.

“Restaurant is Decent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2013

We ate here on our trip to Jackson, TN. The food was ok, but the buffet needs more variety. They need extended hours also for the museum. It just was not open late enough and we did not get to see anything. We did stop at the art store there in the complex, I cant remember the name of it. The lady was real nice and we bought a drawing that she did of beale st. It was a really pretty drawing. It was a decent time, but nothing special. I give it a four.
