Manager was great!! Service was bad.

Normally when there is a problem at a Cracker Barrel, nothing is done to help you feel better or to reconcile the problem. However in the 100 plus times I have been to a Cracker Barrel, only about 3 times was there a problem. But this location in Smithfield the service was horrible and the... read more

This Cracker Barrel sits in front of the outlet mall off of I-95. After finding my way through the various rows of merchandise you encounter upon entering the restaurant I found the counter where I could be seated. My waitress was attentive. I ordered the breakfast sampler. It was a mistake on my part. The food was hot and flavorful,... More

I ordered a take-out dinner to bring back to my hotel. Everything was right in the order, and that's really unusual anymore. They even added extra jelly and butter for the biscuits! I had the chicken fried chicken and it was cooked just right. I had a few minutes so I did some shopping in the country store and bought... More

My group stopped here for breakfast at 8:00 on March 29. 45 people and way early! We had a really great server...wish I remembered her name, but we all had the food we wanted as ordered. It's Cracker Barrel but it was delicious and hit the spot!!

March 10, 2015 dinner stop for us in Smithfield, NC. We were tired after a rainy visit to Appomattox and the drive. Their lemon pepper trout is my favorite dinner and it was all I expected. The 2 broccoli sides were perfectly prepared. Chicken strips with mashed potatoes and corn bread dressin were my husbands choice on this stop.

We are locals and dine here at least once a week. The food is always hot and good and the table service is consistently good. Lately we have tried their Pepper Grilled Sirloin which we find to be tasty, tender, and an excellent diet selection as well.

We always in our travels eat one or two meals at Cracker Barrel. Food is always perfect and I love the veggies. The store part itself is always nice to walk through and maybe pick up a few snacks for the road.

I ate here with my church group. Because it was a large party, I still gave this restaurant a 4. Waitresses did fine, and were comforting, however, the food came out at different intervals, and some in my group waited an extra 15 minutes to ever get their food. Some of the food also was not cooked as ordered. I... More
