Love Those Chicken & Dumplings!

Bottom Line: Affordable meal. Details: Arrived here for lunch on a Tuesday afternoon and it was very easy to get a table and service was quick and friendly. I love Cracker Barrel and wish there was one closer to me but unfortunately I have to drive around 45 min to this one. The meal is as good... read more

I've eaten at a Cracker Barrel two or three times over the past several years. The food is unhealthy and doesn't taste that good. I never understand why people rave about it. However, I will say that the staff was very accommodating to our large party of ~30, worked hard to get us seated close together, and assigned 3 different... More

It's a Cracker Barrel so if you like their methods of preparation you're safe with this choice. I'm a fan of breakfast so I'm happy there.

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.

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 for each meal are... More

Mine was way overcooked. My family says theirs was okay. Parking Easy to get to. Safe known menu. Its a Cracker barrel, you know what you... More

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.
