You can't go wrong if you want a hearty meal, light meal or breakfast for dinner. The billboards help keep track of the mile posts to the nearest exit. There is always a decent hotel around too if one gets tired.

It is what it is. Good breakfast meal place. Service is ok. Real loud place. Better to go early, and stay away from Sunday until after the church crowds

All Cracker Barrels are not the same. This was a very good one. It was late night when we arrived but received attentive service and comforting food. Loved the egg sandwich and chili.

My wife and I ate here while on the road Service was very good. Menu is excellent, offering both standard items and a fairly wide range of healthy choices. I had a breaded and baked chicken breast with a sweet potato and green beans. The portion was not as large as some I have had, but it was easily enough... More

Nice service and good food without breaking the bank. It is good to know that is open late so travelers can stop for a meal at any time. There is nothing we did not like. Thank you.

The service was excellent, and so was the food. The prices are reasonable. Of course, it is just about impossible to leave without buying something in the retail part of the establishment, but that's just one of the things that makes Cracker Barrel fun, isn't it?

You can never go wrong with Cracker Barrel. Traveling across the US it has seemed as tho Cracker Barrel has been consistent. This was no exception. We went to Cracker Barrel for breakfast and my family of three enjoyed a wonderful hot meal for a very reasonable price. You can always depend on Cracker Barrel for the food, service, and... More

Stopped here about 4pm on a Sunday. Restaurant wasn't real busy as there were empty tables. We couldn't understand why service was so slow. We hardly saw our server (Mikki) and had to ask other servers to ask our server for drink refills. Our server brought our food to us and we asked for drink refills. We finished our food... More

Everything was delicious. Fast, friendly staff. The chicken and dumplings plate was a great deal. I also enjoyed the free refills on the strawberry lemonade.
