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.

Excellent breakfast. Top rate service. We have been to this Cracker Barrel several times over the years. Never have had a reason to complain. Generous servings. Good coffee.

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!
