Any time I get a chance to eat a Cracker Barrel, it's on. This place was no exception. Great food, service, and the decor is always fun to look at.

Casual dining with a menu that spans egg dishes, sandwiches & burgers, and "homestyle" meals such as fried chicken and meatloaf. Service is usually efficient and friendly. Be prepared for a wait during weekend meal hours. Of course, they are committed to make that wait easier by giving you a huge country-store type gift shop to roam through (and hopefully... More

I love Cracker Barrel's breakfast. Hot coffee, large fluffy pancakes, crisp bacon and soft scrambled eggs... the breakfast of champions (LOL). Everything was DELICOUS!

For chain restaurants, the staff can make or break the experience. The staff here was all very friendly and kind. I felt like I was amongst family.

We went here for dinner. The wide variety on the menu, the pleasant staff and browsing through the unique souvenirs always attract us to Cracker Barrel. The meals we ordered were delicious and nutritious.

My daughter and I were there late on a Wed evening. As we were checking out a group of 17 people came in and the hostess was complaining that they came in at closing time. She said I should have told the person "no" that came in and asked if we were open. Now we have to serve this many... More
