Caney Fork currently operates a 10,000 sq ft restaurant located in Nashville at the front gates of Gaylord Opryland. Tourists from more than a dozen states have come to know Caney Fork's awesome steaks, catfish, and ribs as they have visited the nationally famous Gaylord Opryland. "Since we are so well known by the many people who have visited the original Caney Fork over the years, we thought it was time to take the brand to several southern towns that could really appreciate good southern food and great prices," states Wayne Harris, Director of Operations. "You will not find a better value or better service in the South. We offer everything from Fried Pickles or Green Beans for appetizers, to pulled pork or our famous Caney burger for lunch, to our Seafood Platter or Slow Cooked Ribs with the best BBQ sauce you will ever taste for dinner. You can finish it off with a homemade banana pudding or cobbler and we will guaranty you will be satisfied."

Caney Fork will be located at 528 North 18th Avenue, Columbus, MS 39705-2283 at the NE corner of Leigh Mall facing Interstate 82. "This is an excellent location for all of the residents of Columbus to get to," says Mr. Harris, "and the visibility from the interstate will allow anyone traveling through the mid parts of Mississippi and Alabama to see we are now here and open for business. Caney Fork will bring approximately 80 new jobs to the Columbus area and is currently accepting applications online at Our goal is to have the decor in each location reflect as much of the local people, business and culture as we can and to hire as many local residents to make sure Caney Fork is truly a local Columbus family restaurant." Our slogan says it all... "Where Family and Friends Eat!"
