Great food

Good food and great service. Just what I expect from CB. Just wish the wait time to get a seat was not as long but at least they have shopping to help during your wait time.

I always enjoy going to Cracker Barrel, anywhere I am. The food is always good, the service is better than average most of the time and the selection is fine. Then I like the Clearance Corner where I have found so many good buys. Then they gift wrap free of charge. They do a good job too.

I really appreciated seeing that there was a Cracker Barrel located next to the Hotel we were staying at. It was just a short walk from the Clarion parking lot. Typical Cracker Barrel menu as would be expected. Good quick service and everything was prepared to our satisfaction.

Service was poor! The waitress brought our party of two a total of 10 biscuits! It was embarrassing! I ordered the St. Patrick's Day special, minus the corned beef. Waitress said no because it was a promotional. What? I finally convinced her of what I would like to order, and she informed me that the portions would remain the same.... More

When I get to the motel I don't feel like driving anymore and want something in walking distance, the Cracker Barrel was across the street and great food as always. Corned Beef and Cabbage special, yum.

Had diner at the Cracker Barrel in Bowling Green. The place was very busy, but they moved the seating along at a very fast rate. The menu was typical Cracker Barrel. Food may not be gourmet but is always very good. A nice to place to eat.
