Stopped in for dinner on a layover in Smithfield, NC. Arrived at 7:15 and we were seated immediately. Nice friendly, family atmosphere. I ordered a vegetable platter and my wife ordered a chicken platter that came with two sides and bread or muffins. I chose a side salad as one of my vegetables and my wife also chosen a side... More

We went to the Cracker Barrel around 11:45 am and they took our name. We waited outside for 45 minutes. They called our name and we were walking in and then they called our name again while we were standing at the hostess station. The gift shop is over crowded, the bathrooms were gross. We were seated at a table... More

Fairly decent southern cooking. Greasy for sure, but tasty as well. The shop is interesting for the kids and the prices are reasonable.

This chain restaurant is always good, no matter where you find them. This particular location was no surprise. The service was excellent - Katie kept our glasses filled and chatted about the restaurant. The food was delicious - we both got chicken and dumplings. The various sides were apples, mashed potatoes, baby carrots, mac & cheese, and fried okra. You... More

We were shopping at the nearby outlets and decided to eat at Cracker Barrell. The staff were friendly and we were quickly seated. Our waitress checked on us and made sure we were ok. The only complaint I have is about the time it took to eat, but the restaurant was filling up then.

Every time we eat at a Cracker Barrel restaurant we come away satisfied! Whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner. People from New England, such as myself - call the last meal of the day - supper! No matter, it is always good!

We stopped here on our way home to Myrtle Beach from northern Virginia on Memorial Day and although the restaurant was quite busy, the service was fast, friendly and one of the best that I have experienced at a Cracker Barrel. This was probably a result of having a very experienced (4 stars) server, Judy but while we were waiting... More

If you were taken to a Cracker Barrel blind folded you would not know where you were as they are exactly the same in decor, menu and service. That is because what they offer is desired and the customer knows he/she can depend upon getting good food with good service at a fair price. Traveling in an RV makes CB... More
