The lunch buffet was very good, with lots of fresh greens, beans, peas, and salads. There were good fried pork chops and fried fish, and the star of the show: fried chicken. All was delicious, and served in (as the name implies) an old country...More

Overall the food was nothing to brag about and not worth a return trip. The fried chicken was good but the highlight of the meal was the blackberry cobbler with ice cream. Overall disappointed with the meal which was also expensive, around $20 per adult....More

A really good place to eat with very nice people! Best food we've eaten in over 2600 miles!!!! Definitely recommend the stop and don't leave without eating the cobbler.

I've eaten here numerous times and it has the greatest fried chicken that I've ever eaten. All the other "country food" is just as good. If there don't skip the okra and tomatoes, cornbread dressing and blackberry cobbler, with ice cream.

If your looking for southern cooking at it's finest this is it. You can enjoy fried chicken, vegetables, and blackberry or peach cobbler. There are plenty of antiques if your looking to shop.

Please add this restaurant. I found it when we stayed in Port Gibson, MS. it is about 8 miles out of town. It is on yelp. You can see it here: http://www.yelp.com/biz/old-country-store-lorman-2, it is also on roadfood.com. It is very inexpenisive and the food is very good. Moreover, the owner is a character. He sings to you. The waitresses treat you like relatives. It is truly a wonderful experience.
