Excellent food and service

This is our "home" Cracker Barrel" as we live just a few miles away. Due to our work we do frequent many Cracker Barrel restaurants across the east coast and I must say, without bias, this is one of the better ones. The servers are never harried, the food always warm and fresh and the details... read more

We never are disappointed with the meals we order, the food is always fresh, hot and good size portions. We travel out of our way when we see a Cracker Barrel ad.

My family and I make it a tradition to always stop at Cracker Barrel when traveling together. This particular Cracker Barrel has very good quality food. The prices are always fair. And I love shopping after we eat. Very good service, clean and friendly!

Had just returned from a trip and on the way home from the airport my husband and I decided to stop here instead of the many NJ Diners. It had been a while since we stopped at any Cracker Barrel - looking forward to a good home meal. First, service, was very slow (it was 8:00 pm on Sunday night).... More

Stopped in Mt. Arlington, North Carolina on trip down to Florida on vacation. Went over to the Cracker Barrel for dinner and was not disappointed. Service was warm and friendly and food was delicious and hot. Would highly recommend for all.

Whenever my friend and I travel we always stop at a Cracker Barrel. I always order something different and I have never had an unpleasant experience. The servers and staff are always pleasant.

I've heard about this place, but haven't been there until last week. This place was very busy for breakfast. Its pretty reasonable priced. Eggs, bacon, smoked sausage (excellent) toast, coffee and grits! Where can you get all this for $9. A nice find right off RT 80 West

My family and I absolutely love going to the Cracker Barrel. It has to be the most affordable restaurant around. We have tried everything on the menu from breakfast to dinner and we are never disappointed. I can feed my family of 7 for under $50.

This year for a change we had our Thanksgiving dinner here, was a bit busy but was seated within 5 minutes. Food was very good, came quickly, server was not with it though very forgetful had to keep asking for things that was included in outer order. But other than that we had a nice time.
