The food is good especially the breakfast. Service could be better. The dinners are ok. Veggies have good and bad days. Some other barrels in the area are better.

Unfortunately, we went here for a celebration breakfast with family and friends. It took a long time for our server to take our orders, and then when our food came, several items were missing. My blueberry muffin was burned and dry, and the "fresh fruit" portion was very skimpy. Service was slow, and the food was subpar. Would not return.

I guess I'm not a huge Cracker Barrel fan. It is ok if you only order vegetables and biscuits. I had the grilled chicken and it was very thin and not much of it. I think I will stick to breakfast there.

We stopped at this Cracker Barrel on the way to Asheville for a visit to the Biltmore House. This was typical of a Cracker Barrel, good service, good food, busy place. My wife had the meatloaf and it was very good, I had the Chicken and rice and it was good, but not as good as I thought it was... More

We ate here with my kids once while in Birmingham visiting them, and it was very good, as usual. I can always depend on Cracker Barrel Restaurants, no matter where in the country I am. Good southern cooked food and hospitality!

Food was rather cold and veggies undercooked, almost raw, our Waitress apologised for the delay in our food, as they had been busy (though it wasn't full) which actually really wasn't that long, but obviously the Kitchen was struggling......

We like to go to Cracker Barrel because we know the food will be good and more like home cooking. Prices are reasonable and portions are good--great for travel!

We went to Cracker Barrel for an unscheduled dinner out on a Friday eve. Seating was relatively quick for a Friday night. Three adults and two children were seated at a table for four with one adult seated at the end of the table. That isn't the best arrangement, but it worked. The waiter was courteous and a little scattered... More
