Great home cooking!

Great food at a reasonable price! If you love fried catfish, you must try it at Cracker Barrel. No matter the location, it is always good. It is served with tartar sauce that gives it that little something extra. You must try the catfish grilled as well. Great place for breakfast!

stayed at the Guesthouse across the street and walked to the cracker barrel. Had the low calorie menu and walked back to the hotel with less than 400 calory dinner!

As I travel for a living, I eat in a lot of Cracker Barrel restaurants. This one is like many of the others, it is a very good place to eat, it is clean and the food is great. The service was a little slow on this particular visit, I suspect that some of the help didn't show up but... More

They always have it out warm and they have a very wide variety of meals on the menu, but sometimes they mess up and they take a while.

The 3 of us had a good meal with country favorites including ham, biscuits and gravy, cheese grits, corn bread. Then we bought a few presents in the gift shop. Fun experience.

Cracker Barrel always provides home cooking and this one was no exeption. Delicious food, friendly staff, and a full tummy.

Even though resteraunt was full (always a sign of good food) service was fast. Waitress told time to share some history and her knowledge of some excellent sites to take in.
