A pleasant surprise for dinner as well.

I'd eaten breakfast at Cracker Barrel many times before, but this was the first time I'd eaten dinner there and, surprisingly, the food was very well-prepared, of good quality and extremely well-priced. I had grilled catfish with grits and green beans, and the meal was accompanied by a couple of... read more

Went to here last night. Place was busy, so it was understandable that it took a bit longer than normal. Server was more than pleasant. Ribs were phenomenal...better than most bbq places. Good food...good portions...fantastic service. Definitely worth the trip!

Robin was our waitress, and made the lunch so worth it! We had a large party of ten and Robin stayed helping us every time we needed anything. I had the chicken liver diner platter, and they were the best livers I've ever had!! As always Cracker Barrel is a nice family place! We love it there

Love going here for breakfast. I Had an omelet and they always fill the dish and give you the feeling your eating at grandma's place. Portions are large and the food is fresh and warm. The wait staff was above average but a bit too unresponsive after they served the food.

Great location next to our hotel. Walked over for dinner after a long 14 hour drive. No wait. Dinner was great. Cornbread was amazing. Been craving it ever since!

A bit disappointed since my food came out right after my salad was. The service was okay. Normally I'm sure the food & service would have been better if they weren't so busy I may try this restaurant again when it's not so busy to see if the food & service is better. It must be good if the restaurant... More

Always consistently good. My wife is a chicken and dumplings junkie and this is where she gets her fix. We could have just eaten 5 minutes ago and if we pass a Cracker Barrel she's like "mmmmm Cracker Barrel"!!!!! I love down home comfort food....you can find it here!

The hostess was very friendly and seated us immediately. The restaurant did not seem to be very busy for a Sunday evening. When the waitress asked for our drink orders I ordered lemonade. A minute or so later she came back and said they were out of lemonade. When she took our meal order my husband asked for cole slaw... More
