I must say that I'm somewhat biased as I find Cracker Barrel to be almost a 'must do' on a family vacation as we do not have any near our home. I would easily give our recent visit an Excellent rating as I love the atmosphere and the food. I enjoyed a sampler of dumplings, country ham, and... read more

I ate lunch there with my two granddaughters, ages 12, and 13. We had a brand new waiter, had only worked two days. He was very nice, and tried very hard, but you could tell he was new. Wasn't a problem, just glad he told us he was new!

Cracker Barrel is my "go to" place when I want a guaranteed good meal with guaranteed good service. How disappointed I was in this place. My sister and I both ordered the chicken breast dinner with veggies. The chicken breast came out tough and almost burnt, the veggies were cold (not cool, cold), but the worst part was the fact...

Great service, even though it was really busy. Located in Rockvale Outlet complex. One thing I've always liked about Cracker Barrel is that he food is always good and consistent. Servers will offer off menu selections if asked. I sent my meal back as it wasn't hot and it came back 5 minutes later piping hot.

The prices are great and you get alot for the price. I love their iced tea and also several other things they have on menu. The waitresses could be more attentive though. One thing I don't like are their biscuits, no flavor. Its a nice place to eat though,good location.

We love Crackerbarrel. If someone in our party feels like breakfast, it is always available. Having recently been diagnosed diabetic, I found many things on the menu that would fit my diet. Oatmeal, many varieties of salads, chicken with two vegetable sides, eggs, the list goes on and on. When we are done I always find the most unique things... More

It's standard Cracker Barrel which means the food is fantastic and the price and service are where they should be. We always grab breakfast there before heading home.

This is your typical Cracker Barrel. The staff all seemed friendly and helpful. If you're looking for a good meal at a sit down restaurant for a very reasonable price, you can't hardly go wrong at Cracker Barrel. That's if you like Southern style cooking. Me, I like grilled catfish with hash brown casserole, mac and cheese, and fried okra.... More
