We were,in a hurry, and they helped us out

We were taking the afternoon Corvette plant tour, but we were running late. Told both the hostess and waitress of out time constraint and our meals were out in a flash. Good food, too. The place was busy for a Tuesday, but everything went smooth. Well run location, hope to stop back again... read more

The service was slow and when the order was received it was wrong. When the correct items ordered were received, they were cold. This was not the standard I was used to getting at Cracker Barrel. Payed the check and departed very disappointed.

No issues with cleanliness or service. Ordered my usual chicken and dumplings - some of the dumplings were thick and doughy. Guess I am just used to better plating when I go out to eat - lots of gravy slopped all over the side of the plate. That's probably too picky, but I'm wondering why they let something out of...

To be honest I'm not a big Cracker Barrel fan, but it was the closest restaurant to our hotel and my wife and boys were in favor of eating there. I was pleasantly surprised by the menu (and the prices). Our server brought our food out promptly, but got my order wrong. He apologized (as did the manager), and my... More

Cracker Barrel is right across the street from the La Quinta Inn. It was late and we just walked across. As is usual, the fare at Crakcer Barrel is always good. The service was really good at this one. It was not really crowded at the time we went.

My husband and I travel through the area a few times a year to visit relatives and always stop there for breakfast. The service is fast ......the food is great and reasonably priced, and the place is always neat and clean. Those are requirements in my book for a restaurant! Try it out, you won't be disappointed.

Home-Style Country food at an affordable price. Located right off the expressway. If you have never been to one, I would recommend the Cracker Barrel Sampler a little bit of everything, so yummy! Really quick service too!

Having lived in the South well before Cracker Barrels came into being and now living in Cracker Barrel-deprived Nevada, it is always a treat for us to dine at a CB! As always, the service and the food were great.

Wonderful home cooking, excellent for families! Huge menu and friendly service! Breakfast served all day so everyone can get what they are craving! This location can be extremely busy, so go off peak hours and enjoy a short wait as they have a huge seating area. Big country store in the waiting area, so have fun and pick up a... More
