Always friendly, good coffee and always a cup to go!! Food is excellent. Right off of I-75 makes it very convenient! If you have a taste for bacon and eggs for dinner, you'll always find it here!

Great service once we got a table, very crowded, more than I would have thought. Typical Cracker Barrel food. It was good, served hot. Definitely would go back. Off times would create a much shorter wait.

It was a treat to find this Cracker Barrel Restaurant near our hotel in Lexington, Kentucky. We have been to them a few times in the past, but we don't have them in Minnesota! There was so much to choose from the menu and we enjoyed the salmon and pot roast that we ordered. The only negative is that it... More

Great food variety to chose from, great prices. Very friendly staff and courteous. Very clean and the country accent decorating with antiques was very relaxing and interesting to see all the old antiques of products from years ago. Went to Cracker Barrel most of my stay because it was in walking distance from Hotel.
