Service was ok. Food was typical. Rib eye was horrible. There are lots of restaurants in the area, I would eat somewhere else if I chose this area again.

I love this place personally, I've been here numerous times. The food is always amazing, and the staff is for the most part very upbeat and happy to serve you. Even when there is a complication; as with any restaurant. The only thing I'm not a fan of is the mashed potatoes here. They are always hard and cold. Other... More

Went here tonight. As usual the food is good at a reasonable price. Service was decent. After eating I used the women's restroom. There were paper towels all over the floor and one of the touchless faucets was just running and running.

Nothing out of the ordinary for a visit to Cracker Barrel. Good service and the same food you'll get at any other CB

We stayed at the Howard Johnson just across the street from this place and ate there twice. You get a ton of excellent food for a very good price. The staff was so friendly and nice.

Same menu every place. We have our faves Spicy grilled catfish, veggie platter. Always good. Great travel stop. Waiters seemed disorganized at this location. Took them 10 min to find out who will take care of us. We weren't in a rush this time so it was ok.

As always, we can count on Cracker Barrel to seat us promptly, wait on us quickly and efficiently and bring us a tasty meal so we can get back on the road expeditiously and well fed. With breakfast served all day and wonderful lunch and dinner specials, it is never hard to find just the menu item that you want.... More

My husband and I had breakfast this morning at Cracker Barrel. This used to be my favorite restaurant. I think the portions are smaller and the prices have increased.'I ordered one order of egg beaters and an order of sausage and toast. When the waitress came with our order she said "who gets the child plate". I told her that... More

Always good food with very good service. After eating one can spend more time looking and buying than actually eating in the gift shop. There are many Cracker Barrel restaurants and they are consistent in quality and service. The corn bread was a little dry but does not take away from the delicious food
