Good homestyle food

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.

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

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

Cracker Barrel is one if my favorite restaurants when I'm on the road. Both the quality and quantity of their food is consistently above average. I had the chicken fried steak and eggs breakfast and was pleased with the whole meal. The waitress was both prompt and pleasant and the meal was prepared to my order. Go ahead and give... More

They are wonderful for letting us keep the table longer than usual and continue to fill our glasses and ask if we need anything else.

My wife and I dined (if you can call it that based upon our experience) at this location at approximately 2 PM, 27 February 2015. Here are the list of issues: - There were approximately 10 tables in the section of the dining room we were seated in. For the entire time (30 to 45 minutes) we were seated in... More

We enjoyed the Ashland, Va. Cracker Barrel for a second time while traveling through the area. We had a bit of a wait but the delightful gift shoppe offers many things to look at. The hostess and the whole staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Very pleasant experience.

The Ashland Cracker Barrel, like most of the restaurants in this chain, is within sight of a major highway, but awkwardly tucked back away from the main exit road. Upon finding one's way into the Ashland Cracker Barrel, one finds the expected rocking chair row, barrel with checkers games available, store inside, friendly sales people, cashiers, hostess, staff, fireplace, coloring...
