It took nearly 45 minutes ot get our food once we ordered. The side items we ordered to go along with our dinner weren't brought out even when we asked for them. TWICE. When we brought it to the attention of the cashier who asked us how our experience was, she laughed dismissively, and that was that. There were several... More

The mashed potatoes were cold, okra soft and cool. Steak burger arrived with onions, no gravy and cool. Appeared they... More

I do not usually write a review about this type of restaurant, but in this case, I had too. We stopped at this Cracker Barrel the Sunday after Thanksgiving for lunch. Our 2 year old ordered the kids mac & cheese. Like most normal two year olds, she loves this dish. When they brought it out, there was a layer... More

Because I am not as fit as i was 20 years ago.... I've decided to go on another cross my fingers and hope it works diet. This being said, I took a gigantic leap of faith and ordered something I have never even ate before...baked haddock. Who would have known? It was absolutely delicious. Now, i can see breaking my...

I got a huge breakfast of french toast, eggs and sausage. Came quick and was hot. Hubby got his usual eggs in a basket with gravy on the side. Perfect just like we expect from Cracker Barrel.

The Cracker Barrel was beside the hotel we stopped at on our way down to Alabama to visit our son. It was 7 PM and the restaurant wasn't busy. After 9 hrs. of driving, we were tired and hungry. I ordered a steak (asked it to be done 'medium' and no seasoning) and my husband a pecan crusted catfish. After... More

Food came out slowly, they were rather busy. We had to ask for refills on the drinks and napkins on the table. Also had to ask for corn muffins/biscuits. Food was slightly cold as though it had been sitting in the back awhile too. Overall this was not the best I've been too.

Thank Geechin
