Good country food

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.

This is your typical Cracker Barrel. The staff was friendly and the service was fine. The food is always good.

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!

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.
