Husband had the buttermilk chicken it hard, overcooked and unappetizing/tasteless. My casserole was served cold and had to be sent back. The kids chicken was hard and no one finished their meal. We've eaten at Cracker Barrels all over and never encountered one this bad. Our waitress was great, but couldn't make up for the tasteless, ill prepared food.

I had open face roast beef sandwich and my wife had baked chicken breast with dressing. Both meals were excellent as was the lemonade. I have had other excellent meals at Cracker Barrel Restaurants, but the open face roast beef sandwich is my favorite. The service was excellent and loved the way the store is decorated. We have never been... More

The thing I like about this is your can depend on the same good food at any of these Cracker Barrel. But the gift shop is always different. :-)

Unfortunately I left disappointed again.Three of us ordered food, the two left hungry. Cold, slightly re-heated food. We complained and in the end both meals were deducted from the bill. But just like last year, the same issue. I returned hoping service would have changed. Unfortunately it hasn't.

In Arkadelphia for a camp at Ouachita Baptist University. My friends and I ate here multiple times within the week. Excellent service each time. The food is good, but do not order the steak. Stick with breakfast food or veggies and chicken.

We had only three people in our party and did not order anything complicated. The wait for food was very long. The restaurant was not even half full. Our waitress was very attentive and apologetic.

It was a great visit! The waitress was wonderful and sweet. The food was so good, the kids loved their pancakes. The coffee was good too. It is always so nice to shop in their store. It was clean and the environment was great. All the people who worked there very friendly. I'll come back again :)

This Cracker Barrel was recommended by a friend and I was not disappointed! Family of 4 was able to eat for around $45 and the food was absolutely delicious! No complaints here.
