Great service at this one!

My husband and I ate dinner here after stopping at this location for the night on our way back home to Georgia. My husband ordered the Chicken Caesar Salad and I had the Thursday night Turkey Dinner.

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

Many of our recent Cracker Barrel visits have been disappointing. NOT THIS ONE! The food was delicious and the service was good.

Cracker Barrel was a 3 minute walk from our hotel so we did have several meals and all were excellent. The food was, as usual, excellent, service was also excellent. All staff was friendly and helpful. As I said, Cracker Barrel is always a safe stop for a meal.

Cracker Barrel can't be beat for a great breakfast or any other meal. I went to Louisville for a derby party at cousins. Since my brother, who I hadn't seen since October was working in Bowling Green for a few months, I decided to stay in Bowling Green for the night to visit. We visited that night then decided to...

We had a large party and had to rush through breakfast. The waitress was awesome with getting our drinks and food to us right away. Will definitely eat here again when we are in the area!
