Homestead Restaurant

1331 Hwy 100
Centerville, Tennessee

The Homestead Restaurant was built on the site of the J. L. Tilley grocery store after it burned. Paul Burks started the restaurant and operated it until 1998. Janet Martin- in need of a job after the closing of the Levi Strauss plant- took her severance pay and invested it in the restaurant. Janet, with no experience and a “learn as you go” attitude, built the place into the thriving business it is today.

Its popularity comes from the “good ole down home country cookin’ food” that is served. With the reasonable prices and good daily fare, some locals eat there daily. Buffets are available for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The breakfast buffet consists of several meats such as ham, bacon, sausage with country gravy- along with potatoes and biscuits. You can have scrambled eggs from the buffet or eggs to order. If you crave your mother’s chocolate gravy over biscuits, this is your place. It is made fresh daily and a “must experience” Southern delight.

The lunch and dinner buffet consists of three meats and nine vegetables along with corn bread and rolls. Southern fried chicken is a daily staple. There is a cold bar with salad fixins’ and desserts. Banana pudding is a daily item along with serve yourself vanilla and chocolate ice cream cones.

Sunday buffets have extra desserts to choose from such as delicious cakes and pies of different flavors.

Friday and Saturday night buffets are reserved for  a regular bar with fish and chicken along with a seafood bar. Dessert is also included. Of course, you may order from the menu a’ la carte.

There is a large dining area that can be reserved for meetings, reunions or whatever your need may be. Special menus can be provided if needed for special gatherings, and catering is also available.
