Sunday Morning Breakfast

Always enjoy Cracker Barrel on our travels. Quality is consistent and reliable. Love the biscuits, grits and country ham. Husband favors the pancakes. Only wish for better coffee.

All cracker barrel restaurants are replicants of each other. The food, good home cooking, is the same at each facility. If you like home cooking this is the place to eat. My favorite meal is the Fried Chicken Livers.

We live an equal distance between 2 Cracker Barrel restaurants, and have gone to both of them repeatedly. But this Cracker Barrel has fast become our favorite. The wait is not as long, the staff is ALWAYS friendly and we've never, ever, been disappointed. We are given the option of where we'd like to be seated (when possible). The food... More

Great Cracker Barrel location. These restaurants are always trustworthy to have excellent food and service. Home chicken salad was very good. Location has lots of parking, very clean.

I visit this resturant several times a years, and the food is always yummy. Just beware you sometimes have to wait over an hour to get a table espically on Sat. and Sun. Overall a great place to eat!

My parents wanted to go to Cracker Barrel for their 68th wedding anniversary. Not where I would have picked, but it is usually pretty good so that's where we went. Monday night is pork chop special night, so my parents and I all ordered the pork chop. My brother had breakfast. When the food came out, I noticed that they... More

The service is quick and the food tastes like it came from Mom's kitchen. The buttermilk fried chicken is amazing! Can't go wrong when you're traveling through or just have a craving for their green beans and chicken. Kids love the store after the meal--every old-fashioned candy and toy you can imagine.

Thank BradandGina
