Great service with a fine lunch

We were traveling from Massachusetts to North Carolina and stopped at the Cracker Barrel in Ashland, VA. This restaurant chain can be counted on for a good meal and clean accommodations for the traveler. A welcome stop for a hungry traveler needing a meal and the stretching of legs.

It seems that prices are going up and portions are going down. If you complain the manager will bring another portion, but who wants to go out to eat and complain?

I love this restaurant and was especially pleased with my waitress during our visit. I had just had surgery and was unable to eat much and my waitress allowed me to order off the kids menu. Not many places allow this so THANK YOU.

I often meet people here for a business breakfast because the food is excellent, the service is super and no one listens to your conversation because they're having their own. The "Old Timer's Special" is hard to beat for under $9. Too much food to eat, but I always try.

Love Cracker Barrel, except this one. Waited 50 minutes before our salad and biscuits came. Told a few times by server that kitchen was backed up. But tables seated after us were served before us. Server was not too attentive.when brought to manager's attention was told server was always like that. That was not an acceptable response.

On Mother's Day, this place was packed, as one might expect. My wife asked me to swing by and pick up some take out she ordered. Before yall get started.....I did cook for her later in the day!! She really enjoyed what she got (fish and grits). Being that it was Mother's Day, the food took longer than expected, but... More

The food was hot and make well, although not quite how I ordered it (I requested certain items be left off, they were brought to the table anyways, I suppose I can't be too upset by this). We were seated immediately at 11 am on a Sunday, and the staff was pleasant. Good location near the highway and our hotel.

I love this location because I always leave full (I'm a large guy) and my wallet is still okay. Can't beat it for the money and the turnip greens (while $5 a bowl) are excellent. A little understaffed on servers, but the majority are very nice. Breakfast is great and large portions

Food was what you'd expect from a Cracker Barrel , both my wife and I had the chicken and dumplings and they were great. Service was excellent.

Happy to review this delightful restaurant! We had a very short wait, even though it was Saturday and dinner time. The hostess who sat us was cheerful, and brought us water and coffee very soon after we sat down. Our impression of the restaurant was that it was clean, with a homey atmosphere, and everyone was working hard, but was... More
