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

Poor service and rude waitress. Insulted repeatedly by staff in gift shop and by waitress. I called in advance before arrival to find substantial means of replacement menu. Waitress told me to shut up and eat the ham on my plate. She even had my daughter crying. Terrible attitude. Never have been back and I don't recommend eating here.

I ordered a gluten free steak that tasted like sawdust, the carrots were so over cooked they were watery and mushy . The only thing I could really eat was the mashed potatoes. Absolutely the worst gluten free meal I have ever had.
