Hit and miss

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... read 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

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

If you want cheap good food with great service this is the place to go. Loved looking around the shop before you went in for dinner.

Just down the road from our motel (the best western plus ambassador). We went about 7:30 pm on mother's day night. No crowds, sufficient staff so we could be attended to appropriately, and the service, food, and atmosphere were at the usual level of good that a Cracker Barrel promises and provides.

Extremely efficient staff and well cooked food. Very handy for I 75 ( the Jacaranda exit I believe), and for the Holiday Inn Express, the staff were charming, polite and helpful.
