After a long drive, this was the first place we ate on our vacation stay in the area. I had the apple dumpling... Very good! Can't go wrong with any CB!

Never a big Cracker Barrel fan but kids like it. Went here for dinner and the service was horrible. Took forever to gr drunks then king time to come back and take our order. They weren't even that busy. Our food must have been shipped in because it took so long and then some of it was cold. Overall bad... More

Recently have the opportunity to eat dinner at this Cracker Barrel location. No doubt it's stood out as being one of the best I have ever eaten at within the entire chain. The service was simply marvelous and the food was cooked to order. I would highly recommend visiting this location.

Stopped for breakfast on our way to Ohio. Waited forever to even be acknowledged. Coffee was not brought or offered until we ordered it. Then had to wait longer. Amy N was our server and she was less than friendly. She never smiled. Food is average. Love the gift shop. Hostess was very sweet.

If you are not looking for anything overly fancy and just some comfort food this is a place to eat. We chose chicken & potato, and Ham & Vegetables. OK but would not be able to eat there every night. Great little gift store attached to the restaurant if you want to shop afterwards

We ate here on Thanksgiving and enjoyed a nice home-style meal. Our server was extremely friendly, as was the rest of the staff. This is our second year having our Thanksgiving meal here, and we were pleased, once again.

We eat here frequently. The restaurant is clean, the staff is friendly and attentive and the food is good plus it is reasonably priced. It tends to be busy especially at lunch so eating mid afternoon makes it a little easier. Located just off of I75 South.

My wife and I eat here quite a bit. They now have a new menu that is reduced in portion size which is great for folks in there sixties which includes us. Of course the price is reduced also. We love this new marketing plan and suspect it will do great things for this company to remain competitive in a... More
