Cracker Barrel is always a good place to eat. The Cracker Barrel in Lexington is no different. The wait staff was awesome, and the food was as expected.

Stopped here on a busy Sunday morning. Was seated quickly and my food arrived fast. Everything came as I ordered and was very good. The server was very friendly and took very good care of us.

I had a steak (my mistake). It was chewy and lacked flavor. The waiter's mind was elsewhere. He served dinner without silverware, but he was very polite. I've had better food at other Cracker Barrel's and I wasn't expecting Rith's Chris.

This chain restaurant always has good food, good service and reasonable prices. Their desserts are quite good also. The gift shop is great if something is needed for your trip.

This Cracker Barrel is OK, the food is good, but the staff is not as friendly as the one in Richmond, but that is the difference in Lexington and Richmond, people in Lexington just are not as friendly as a whole I guess due to it being a larger city. But still this Cracker Barrel has good food..

A regular stop on our annual road trip golf outing. This trip our experience was excellent. Eight different breakfast orders-all received at the same time. Coffee cups refilled throughout meal. Attentive waitress was outstanding (not always the case on our previous trips). Our bills delivered promptly & accurately!

While traveling from Ohio to Pigeon Forge, my wife and I stopped here for breakfast. It operates and looks just like any other Cracker Barrel with a couple of exceptions. One, they serve their grits HOT instead of lukewarm like so many others; and two, they actually know how to fry a well done, crispy brown, yolk broken, egg! I... More

Chicken and Dumplins like grandma makes. You want soul food here is the place to go. Sure, its a chain but it is always good so whenever you travel and you want to feel like your at home, here is the place to go. Enjoy the country store, get some old fashioned candy, then play checkers in the rocking chairs... More
