This was the old Cracker Barrel that permanently closed. The buffet for breakfast was awesome and the price was less that $8.00 a person! Good food and fantastic for the price! Can't wait to return!

The breakfast buffet has just about anything a person could want for breakfast. The bacon is great-----not almost raw like some buffets. The coffee is good and you get plenty of refills. And the price is very reasonable.

I have been stopping in for years when traveling on business. Brought my family for the first time and they loved it as well. The fried chicken livers bring me back. The desserts ruin my diet. Our server, and I cannot remember her name, but she is a very sweet blonde, did a great job. This is probably the best... More

The grilled catfish was delicious. The buffet and salad bar was filled with delicious food. There were so many desserts it was hard to choose.

This a buffet with soup, salads, meats, vegetables, desserts, etc. The salad bar was fresh with a variety of fixings. The meats were not that inviting -- steak in brown gravy, meatballs, fish, etc. were overcooked, rather bland. Vegetables were tastier. Desserts included cobblers, cookies and ice cream from a standard ice cream machine. The $10 price was fair. Quality... More

It's a buffet. Great home cooking for breakfast or dinner. Food is always hot and fresh and delicious! Prices are more affordable than golden corral and cracker barrel. There's a general store that sells souvenirs and other goodies. Right off the interstate. You won't be disappointed.

Great country food buffet. The waitress was very attentive even though the restaurant was busy. Our drinks never ran low. There's plenty of truck parking, which is important to us because we are truck drivers. A very family friendly place, with a country store. Reminds me of Cracker Barrel.

Thank mizzfrizz
