For the first time in 25 years, I did not cook Thanksgiving dinner at home this year. After feeling a little lost, my husband and I took off on a road trip and ended up having Thanksgiving dinner at the Cracker Barrel in Arden NC. The restaurant was packed (which we anticipated) after a 45 minute wait we were seated.... More

I am a local....service is great (Ask for Casey or Tasha) they are the best server's anywhere. Depending on which kitchen manager is on duty the portion sizes can be a little small. Complain they will bring you more. I expect to go into Cracker Barrel in Arden, NC or Knoxville, TN, or Evansville, IN and receive the same quality... More

Service is fast but food lacks taste. Sawmill gravy tastes like flour and water--no seasoning at all!

There food is always good but this visit the portion size of their catfish was disappointing. Let's face it when you go to Cracker Barrel you expect larger portions. I do have my eye in their rocking chairs for my front porch. Well made and good quality

It was raining and we were on motorcycles, however this place was close enough that we walked and did not get too wet. The food was very good as it usually is a Cracker barrels. I would eat there again.

Nick provided great service, supplying us with plenty of rolls, cornbread, apple butter and jelly. The cornbread was good but not as good as I remembered it. I think the issue was the butter they provided was different. For my meal I ordered chicken & dumplings, with sides of mashed potatoes, green beans and corn. At first the chicken &... More

I had to leave southern California to experience a Cracker Barrel and I'm hooked on the food. Almost anything is great on this menu -
