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

Whenever I travel home from a trip by car, I normally stop at a Cracker Barrel for a quick dinner and have come to expect reasonable food and fast service. Although I have stopped at this location before and was very satisfied, on this occasion the service was very poor. Although there were plenty of empty tables, my wife and... More

Today we had a great experience! There was no wait! Fernando was our server. I had the country boy platter with pork chops and my wife had the buttermilk oven... More

The food was delicious, service not so good. Brought the wrong bread and didn't refill drinks. Cashier was having personal conversation while we waited to pay.

Had to wait awhile to be seated. Once we were seated and our order was taken, we did not have to wait long before our food was served. Everything was tasteful and hot. It was an enjoyable meal.

Ordered the Thanksgiving turkey dinner was not very hot. Did not want to return it because they were quite busy but was not very impressed by the presentation and the quality of the food.
