One of the best in the Franchise

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.

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!!

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. We both had the country ham with sides and sweet tea,... More

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.
