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

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

Typical Cracker Barrel comfort food. The service and food were good and the price is always reasonable.

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!

The food was the typical comfort Southern food. Very good food and located close to the motel. The server was a little forgetful but served us well. Comfortable restraunt and fun to shop in the store. We found some bargin items on sale. Nice place to stop for a large family or just a few.

As a UK visitor to Tennessee and USA I have been to a few Cracker Barrels with my gorgeous American friends. It is real Southern food. I am always one to go for pancakes with syrup and crispy bacon. And my friend Trai said Cracker Barrel do actually do the best pancakes! So that is a recommendation. For an Englishman... More
