As we sat down, we overheard a couple at the table next to us complaining to the waitress and asking several times to see the manager of the restaurant. We... More

Hostess wasn't very friendly, older lady, never saw her smile. Our waitress was a young man, a "rising star" and he was late to our table but nice young man. Food wasn't as good as other Cracker Barrels, very busy though. Picked up a four pack of sodas, had only three in it, the cashier didn't offer to get some... More

This is the first time in many visits to Cracker Barrel that I was disappointed with my meal. I ordered the fried catfish and it was dry and had too much breading - I have had it before at other locations and it was great.

I am not really a fan of Cracker Barrel's food, but love shopping in their store. We do not have any in our state.
