Not the best Cracker Barrel

Biscuits were rock hard stale. Ordered extra gravy, did not come out with dinner. Asked for it and was told it would be out right away. 10 minutes later, waitress came by and asked if anyone brought it. Told her no. She said someone should have brought it by now. I told her nevermind as I was... read more

Frequent Sunday brunch spot, always fresh, always yummy., always crowded. Enjoy breakfast menu the most. Fast, courteous service. Reasonably priced. Country Store gift shop is fun to browse. (Bought one of their rocking chairs years ago in Virginia!) Local favorite all around.

Our breakfast was kind of a mess. We were dining gluten free and that required some deciphering... mainly to understand what their "Gluten Menu" meant. Is it WITH gluten or is it gluten FREE? We had a wonderful waitress, but she couldn't overcome the food that tasted more like cafeteria slop--the ham was dry the eggs seemed like they were... More

stopped in for dessert and got ten minutes of how the waitress is diabetic. not what I would call dining atmosphere. Fruit cobbler came but they forgot the ice cream. Would have asked for the ice cream but couldn't get past the insulin story and how the waitress sneaked some of the double chocolate coca cola cake. Baked apple was... More

I have had some very good breakfasts and good service at this location. However, it seems like lately it has been very hit and miss and not consistent at all. This morning I waited 35 min. for my food. I asked to see the manager who said he had no idea why . I felt that my bill should have... More

The food was the same old Cracker Barrel fare. What was different about this location was it is kinda off the beaten path so wasn't even a wait at 9:00 am.on a Sunday morning. Also the staff were really pleasant and friendly.

Ok, I admit it...I enjoy eating at Cracker Barrel restaurants. You can usually count on delicious food and decent service. I enjoy looking around the store either before or after eating. This particular trip was to visit my MIL (mother in law). Went with my wife and teen-age son. When we arrived, promptly seated (wasn't that busy) and server was... More

Typical CB but the location is very very odd. I didn't even see it or any signs and used google maps to figure out where the heck it was.

Went for breakfast and as I dont drink coffee I got milk..came in little cartons I got in grade school with a VERY WARM glass. Food was tasty but was definitely pre-portioned as if it was 2 eggs...im guessing...hmmm maybe it was for a kids version...not quite sure. I would have been more happy stopping and getting a breakfast sandwich... More
