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.

The Good: reliable, excellent service, spotless The Bad: it's a chain of course, no knock out food This is my hometown Cracker Barrel so I am biased. It's a cry good example of the breed. The service is fast and friendly. It's always been spotless. The food is well prepared.

We frequently stop at Cracker Barrel when traveling. The food was very good and service was good. There was no waiting to get a table. This is a convenient location to I-65.

My husband and I were happy to find Cracker Barrel in walking distance from where we stayed, Laquita Inn. We got in late and didn't want fast food. Even though it was crowded when we got there the food was served relatively quickly. Our server was great. We got the catfish platter. The fish and turnip greens were very good... More
