It all started back in 1965. An antique collection became an antique museum that grew into a Southern restaurant. It's one of the few places where you can really experience the South you grew up in or imagined.
We are proud that Brooks Shaw & Son's Old Country Store is one of the Top 10 Attractions in the state of Tennessee. Located only an hour east of Memphis and 120 miles from Nashville, Casey Jones Village is just seconds off Interstate 40 at Exit 80A. We were listed in Southern Living magazine as one of the Top 10 stops along Interstate 40 between Dallas and Knoxville. We love our hometown folks and the travelers from around the world. We love giving you a place to relax and enjoy our atmosphere and friendly food and service.
At Brooks Shaw & Son’s Old Country Store we serve our world famous buffets three times daily with Southern favorites such as fried green tomatoes, barbeque, hand battered Southern fried chicken, catfish, Tennessee country ham, turnip greens and homemade cracklin’ cornbread cooked fresh off the griddle. We have an extensive soup and salad bar and delicious homemade desserts. Our breakfast buffets are just like Grandma's. We are proud to be voted Jackson's favorite restaurant the past several years in a row!
The Gift Shoppe at the Old Country Store is filled with pure Southern charm with thousands of items to choose from. Our guests also love the Old Country Store "To Go" Takeout. With designated parking and a special side entrance, it's easy to stop in and pick up some great Southern favorites or sit a spell if you have time at our antique lunch counter. Over Labor Day 2009 we proudly opened the Wellwood Country Store. It is connected by a breezeway to the Old Country Store it inspired and is the country store from the Wellwood community where Brooks Shaw worked as a young boy. It has been lovingly restored and will bring back wonderful childhood memories for many of you.
You can also play checkers or enjoy an old fashioned ice cream treat in the authentically recreated 1890’s Ice Cream Parlor and Fudge Shoppe. Don’t forget to ask for your free sample of fudge. Hard to find candies from the past can be found in the Confectionery Shoppe too along with jams and jellies, local honey and local sorghum. We are very proud to specialize in products made in Tennessee.
