Everytime we go, which by the way is a LOT (at least 4x per month) the food portions get smaller and smaller and the food gets colder and colder! Cracker Barrel use to be very generous with their food portions so we didn't mind paying their higher prices, but this last time, all I can say is REALLY??? Nearly $10... More

When we went on a Saturday afternoon it was very crowded. The waitress was nice but extremely busy. It seemed like forever until our food came, then some of it was cold. We had to ask for biscuits that were suppose to come with our food and that took some time to get.

The food at this location is inconsistent. The dumplings were doey; the chicken was in strips and not chunks; the brown rice tasted nasty; and the sweet tea had no flavor. I will NEVER eat at this location again.

I ordered pancakes with well done bacon. The pancakes were rubbery and difficult to cut with a fork. The bacon came out undercooked.. My friend's meal was all wrong. He was served some sort of meat plate but when he said he ordered the pancake deal the waitress disagreed with him. She seemed to quickly change her tune and kept... More

Today I ordered Chicken livers and when they came they were almost hard as rocks and not at all tasty. I complained and really wanted to return them and leave but I was with a friend and she wanted to stay because she did not get the livers. So, I reordered catfish and it was just as bad. So thin...

Had breakfast here with family. Great food as usual. I had the poached eggs, bacon, hash brown casserole, and biscuits. I ordered the eggs soft and bacon limp. They fixed them exactly as I ordered. The one area we had problems with was their timing. They had half the food out after 10 min but it took about another 15... More

No matter where we are if looking for comfort food and a short stopover while on the road Cracker Barrel is the best choice. We are especially fond of our local resturant location in Pelham, Alabama off I-65 at the 119 exit. We call ahead for a carryout order and the service is always curteous and ACCURATE in filling the... More

This is a great example of a comfort food restaurant. Get their country dinner plate, you pick a meat and two sides. A great deal

We had a table for seven but they were able to seat us right away. Our waitress was not friendly, but quick on the refills. The food came out a little late and a very pleasant manager came to assure us it would be out soon. We had to ask for biscuits and a few were rock hard but others... More
