Great Grits and Great Value

I like grits and gravy. Really, I do. And Cracker Barrel has great grits. I always manage to buy some of the special candy they make me walk by, too. And the server we had on our last visit to the Billings store was a gem. She wasn't just our server, she was the entertainment too.

This is a standard Cracker Barrel with standard Cracker Barrel fare. We at there because it was walking distance (across the parking lot) from Kelly Inn Billings. Although it was late in the evening, we were surprised we had to wait 10 minutes for a table although there were plenty of them clean. I suppose they were short staff at... More

The food was really good.. But the wait was very long.. I would say almost an hour for food. I had the baked catfish it was very tasty. I didn't care for the biscuits

Been to this and many others. If you don't give this five stars then you are impossible to please. These are the best places to eat. They also have a great gift shop area with lots of older style candy as well.

We don't have Cracker Barrel Restaurants around our home, so we thought we'd give it a try. Ok food. Waitress was a bit harried but she rallied just fine. It was good food at a decent price in a comfortable atmosphere.

Stopped in for a dinner. I had the roast beef dinner. The roast beef was good and so was the biscuit. The mashed potatoes were instant, the gravy watery, and the green beans from a can.

Not top shelf food, but the selections are quite varied. Cracker Barrel's are always busy, so maybe I am missing something.

Never been to a Cracker Barrel before but we're heard a lot about them and how good the food is suppose to be. Well, they're right! They were pretty busy when we got there (it was around the Noon hour) but we were seated almost immediately and the server wasn't far behind. Had a quite good turkey sandwich and all... More

Restaurant is very unaccommodating for a large group. We had 15 people wanting to have breakfast here - a rare get together with family from out of town. We called ahead about 30 minutes just to give them a heads up that we were coming, knowing they don't take reservations. Waiting outside, we listened as they called numerous tables of... More

We stopped at the Cracker barrel for dinner while on vacation and traveling through the area. The wait was about 15 minutes, but there was plenty to look at while we waited. We were seated and drink order was taken. Very traditional american food on the menu. We waited a short time for our food after we ordered. Service was... More
