Pleasantly surprised

Wanted to try something different for dinner, so I tried the pecan crusted Tilapia with an orange marmalade and steamed broccoli. The fish wad cooked nicely and loved the seasoning. The broccoli was a little under cooked but was good. Also tried the cornbread with the applebutter, I ate some if... read more

We have been to this Cracker Barrel twice in the last month. Both times, the service was slow and the food was cold and tasted like it had been sitting out all day. I was hoping that they were just having an "off" night the last time. Apparently not.

I love the breakfasts here, very healthy and nutritious. I love the real maple syrup, none of that artificial junk. For lunch and dinner it's a bit tougher to go with a lighter and healthier meal, although my weakness is the fried okra.

Very packed at 9am on a Sunday! We waited like 15 minutes and were quoted 20 minutes. Our server was very pleasant. She just seemed really rushed because of the crowd. The food was okay. Nothing spectacular. The grits were watery.

This location does more business than any CB I've every visited. We did have to wait about 10 minutes for a table but that was not bad considering the crowd. The waitress was a bit overwhelmed but the service was timely and pleasant.

This place varies a lot. Have been there at times when the food and service it top notch and excellent. At other times the food is meh and the service can be a bit subpar. I guess they're very good at being inconsistent.

The manager needs to be a little more involved. The table was sticky. The menu was torn and dirty. The waitress got the order wrong. The size of the side dishes was much smaller than I have been served at other Cracker Barrels. The lettuce in the salad was wilted. A little supervision is needed.

I've eaten at cracker barrel all across the south east. The menu is the same but actual food quality can vary. This one was better than most. Food was hot, fried cat fish was crisp. Wish the one close to my house was this good.

Cheap and cheerful 'down home' "store" and country family restaurant concept. Works well for many and is certainly always full. Not haute cuisine but plenty of good plain food at a very good price.

It was time to visit this place and see what they offered. I got impressed because it was completely different I thought. People told me it was just American classic food, but no! It has so much variety of plates, quesadillas, salads, gluten free plates, dessert, kids food, burgers, etc. I really liked the atmosphere and the service. The gift... More
