Food like always, service slow

It's a Cracker Barrel, so the food was delicious. Table service was slower than usual and some foods were unavailable. Still an overall pleasant experience.

I use this Cracker Barrel for lots of business meetings. The service is great, the food is very good with lots of selections, and you can't beat the prices. We both had the "Old Timers" breakfast - a super deal for under $10.

The food here was just ok, the roast beef was not good, full of gristle and fat! My husband had chicken fry and he said it was good. What stands out at this restaurant is the friendly staff and our waiter was superb! I probably would eat here again.

We ate here ordering Breakfast. The bacon and eggs were great, sausage gravy and Turkey sausage not good, coffee was ok and the tea was good. Our waitress Missy was very helpful and on the spot with any needs we had!

In the past Cracker Barrel has seemed like a very efficient, well-run place but then I encountered Ashland. Was the quickest visit to CB ever. I was seated by a very unenthusiastic person in the seat furthest from the front possible, even though the restaurant was mostly empty at 3:30pm. A waiter assured me someone would be with me soon....

This location blew me away, I admit to being a pretty big fan of the chain, but, the level of service provided here was over the top. The food even tasted better. What ever you are doing, keep doing it Ashland.

The meatloaf was the best I ever had, the staff was pleasant and accommodating and they have many interesting things to buy.

They do not cook steak very well. Asked for medium and was served rare. Sent it back and it came back well.

We stopped at the Cracker Barrel restaurant in Ashland, Va (exit 92). It has the old general store feel. There was a 10 minute wait but you can browse the general store or set outside in an old style rocking chair. Our serve was Nikita who was very friendly and accommodating. We order the pancakes, scrabbled eggs, sausage and biscuits.... More

We stopped by to this location on our way to VA Beach. Food was great and the service was excellent. Our server, Mr. Ronald was absolutely wonderful. Service with a smile is what you'll get when you visit this location!!
