Nestled just outside of Wilson, on Bend of the River Rd. in Nash County, Reservoir Country Store is a one-stop-shop for all your convenience store needs. They’ve got gas, fountain drinks, cooler drinks, snacks and more. Their offerings don’t stop there though. One corner of the store has been dedicated solely to meeting all your bait and tackle needs. You’ll find live minnows, crickets and nightcrawlers, as well as artificial lures and bait.

Reservoir Country Store also offers a full service made-to-order grill with plenty of tasty items to choose from. For breakfast, they have pancakes, eggs made just the way you like them, grits, toast . . . everything you need to enjoy a typical southern breakfast. For lunch, the menu boasts delicious cheeseburgers, hot dogs, plate specials and more. Each day, there is a different special for you to enjoy. When dinnertime hits, the grill is ready and waiting with a plethora of dishes available. You’ll find items like Salisbury steak with or without onions, pizzas, sandwiches, soups and so much more. There is room to eat in the restaurant, or you can take your order to go.

On the first Saturday of each month, Reservoir Country Store offers a live music concert series featuring bands and artists from around the eastern NC area. Genres range from country and bluegrass to folk and gospel.
