It was easy to get to the restaurant from the Hilton Garden Inn. The host/hostesses were very friendly and helpful. The service was fast.

Spent a night in Shilo on our way home from Florida. Thought we would give Cracker Barrel a try and were very happy we did. My steak was tender and juicy and wife's chicken was also very good. Nice atmosphere and a neat little country store also. We will eat there again on our next trip.

The kids love the big fireplace...nice and warm. Service was good and prompt. Waitress very friendly and attentive. Food was good, but I think portions have decreased recently, which probably isn't a bad thing. Overall good value.

For the many years I've eaten at Cracker Barrel, my dining experience has always been satisfactory, but not this time. We ate here last month. We have received rather poor service. The food was luke warm and the coffee wasn't hot. The waitress gave me the wrong side which that part didn't bother me and she fixed that. However she... More

We visited Cracker Barrel with our relatives over the holidays; we had a large party but were seated very quickly. Some of our party wanted lunch while others ordered breakfast, which of course was no problem. By far the best breakfast in the Shiloh area, which is what I think is the chain's main attraction. Go there hungry and enjoy.

It was just okay. If you've been to one, you've been to all of them. Noisy. Crowded. Full of junk you don't need.

I usually enjoy Cracker Barrel but this was not a good dinner. In fairness, we went in about 8:45 at night. They close at 10pm though, so we still had over an hour before closing. The biscuits were a good flavor but were dry. The hashbrown casserole, which is my favorite side, was dry and crunchy. It was the worst... More
