Good Food - Good Service

We were staying at the Fairfield Inn and decided to have dinner here. It was good. I had the meatloaf dinner, my wife had a vegetable plate. For less than $20 we had a good meal. Service was very good. We had a great conversation with the manager/ in the shopping area. This is probably not the... read more

Usually this place is a staple when we travel to the smokies. This time was a little on the bad side. Food took forever...kids fries came after she finished her grilled cheese. The waiter was very off...but nice. No refills...no butter..no biscuits...no dressing for salad....no return for me in the future

cracker barrel is a stop you can count on. Food is average, but always consistent. They were crowded, so service was a little slower than normal, but waiter was pleasant and kept apologizing for the slowness .

We often eat at a Cracker Barrel closer to home. But this time we happened to be in the John Sevier area, so we stopped at the Strawberry Plains Cracker Barrel. We had two waitresses at the same time (apparently one was training the other, or both were new). 1. NASTY silverware. Knives and spoons had cloudy film or greasy... More

Knoxville has at least 5 CBs. We picked the wrong one. Server was friendly but didn't ask us what we wanted to drink while we were looking over the menu. Travelling home on a 12 hour trip and not feeling well so I wasn't in the mood to complain. I ordered the turkey breast sandwich and it wasn't fresh. Turkey... More

Decor was usual country feel - as expected. Menu had plenty of options, 'light' fare haddock option was good! Chicken and dumplings was subpar, too many dumplings and not well presented. Waiter seemed to be elsewhere in her thoughts when dealing with us but was speedy enough.

Thought we would skip all the hassle of cooking this year. There were many choices of restaurants open this year. This one was both close to home and has always impressed in the past. Not disappointed at all. Service was great. Food was outstanding! We may have started a new holiday tradition.

I don't usually leave reviews about excellent service, but just wanted to complement our server Zac. He was very attentive and helpful on our visit to this Crackerbarrel. He's a great waiter with a friendly demeanor and big heart. The food was excellent also! Enjoy your visit to this Crackerbarrel!
