Not as great as before

I think my experience would have been much better if I had not gotten an upset stomach five minutes after eating. We had to leave the restaurant right after we ate instead of hanging out and shopping . My family had good food. I had a vegetable plate and it just tasted like it had alot more grease... read more

This is an excellent cracker barrel. Service was super friendly but more importantly the food was awesome. Get the pecan pancakes they are the best thing on the menu and sit by the fire place when it's cold. Very nice. ..

The Wife and I stopped here as part of a movie and diner nite. We have been here multiple times. After 8pm and the crowds were less. Wait staff attentive and didn't have to wait long for our meal.

I have never waited sooooo long for a glass of tea or a refill. The two ladies I went with had never been to a Cracker Barrel before and I recommended we go because I had never had a bad experience....until this day. Won't be back. Food was awful cold ham, flavorless corn and mashed potatoes (how can you mess... More

Typical Cracker Barrel fare and service. Nothing special, and nothing to complain about. Consistency is not a bad thing.

Whether you are craving breakfast or dinner, the home style cooking at the CB never fails to deliver that "comfort" feeling. The service was excellent as well as the food.

Cracker Barrel is always a fun experience. The food selection is diverse and interesting as well as well priced. I always enjoy browsing the store which is like stepping back in time.

This is our favorite breakfast place, and we were not disappointed this time. As always, the food was delicious, the service excellent, and the prices reasonable. As with all Cracker Barrels, you might have to wait a few minutes to get in, which is why they have the rocking chairs outside. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a delicious meal.

Though the menu is evolving, it stays true to their down-home roots. The breakfast items are consistently good. We like the chicken fried chicken as well as the chefs salad. Service and friendliness of the wait staff can be a little uneven. The country store staff members are unfailingly friendly and browsing there is a delight; especially the antiques hanging... More
