“Take a step back in time”
Voted Jackson's Best Restaurant, the Old Country Store is blessed to celebrate 48 years in business this year. We are so honored our 1890's Ice Cream Parlor has been named one of the Top 50 Ice Cream Parlors in America! lking into Brooks Shaw's Old Country Store is literally a step back in time to the 1890's. Thousands of antiques adorn the walls, hang from the ceiling, surround you at every step from founder Brooks Shaw's original collection gathered treasure by treasure in the early 1960's from the barns of West Tennessee, back road antique shops all over the South and on Shaw family outings in search of hidden antique gems. He was anAmerican Picker before his time like the popular TV show today. What started as a relaxing hobby soon became a passion and resulted in one of the South's largest private antique collections. We opened in 1965 as an antique museum and grew into a beloved Southern restaurant due to the popularity of our original lunch counter that served Southern favorites.
We had the buffet at lunch and the food was excellent! They kept everything well stocked and service was great! It wasn't the cleanest place, but the food was tasty!
They have a buffet style restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The restaurant is connected to the country store which has souveniers and an ice cream parlor. It was a fun stop, and a welcome rest. All of the staff were friendly and attentive.
This place put a smile on my face! Everyone was so nice, the merchandise was awesome and the food was great! Definitely worth the stop!
The hospitality cannot be beat! We needed a half way point to stretch our legs for that days drive and we found it! The museum, mini gold and lunch. The buffet was great, clean, well stocked but if you have picky northerner kids this might be a tough one. Those are hoe cakes not pancakes! The fried chicken filled everyone but the black eye peas and greens didn't go over well with my kids! The store was touristy but fun! We would stop again. Mini golf was adorable and the gentleman was so kind!
Stopped to get some lunch, it was buffet style and food was so so. Good for the price and waitstaff were really nice!
