This place is awesome. Like Cracker Barrel but with a buffet, and the old frozen ice cream machine. Loved it. Fair prices. Great service. Great food. Great country store. They are just off I75 south of Knoxville at Oakland Rd (Exit 62). I'll be going back.

This is a good, country style restaurant. The waitress was very attentive, and the food was fresh. A plus for us, was the availability of truck parking.

We stopped here on our way back from Atlanta. It was New Year's Day and the other places we had wanted to stop at were closed. We were very pleased with our meals for the most part. They had fried chicken which was very good but they only had wings and legs. One of us got a breast (which was... More

Server was attentive. There were a few good things but the overall impression we were left with was ..... a one time visit and never again and the quality of the food presented is not worth the $. Most "vegetable" items tasted as though they are straight from a can. Mac n' cheese did not taste homemade/from scratch, thusly, nothing... More

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.
