The food is as good as other Barrels but the service is slow!!!! Stopped for a "quick" bite left two hours later. The waiter was new but tried very hard to do a good job. Some food was over cooked probably because they were keeping it warm while the rest of our order was prepared.

The food at this Cracker Barrel was horrible. Two of the people in our party became ill later that evening after eating there. The service was as bad or worse than the food! After waiting 45 minutes for a "coffee refill" to be given, we finally flagged down the "Manager" who brought the coffee refill himself, then he disappeared into... More

We love Cracker Barrel but this one had cold greens, dry meat, one large dumplin was in the bowl and it didn't look done. The waitress was blah. She never asked if everything was okay. She never refilled my dad's coffee. He had to get a manager and he came out with a coffee pot that barely had any left... More

The waitress didn't get any of the 4 orders correct and one person only ordered a ham biscuit and beans. The biggest issue was more with management having a very new server at four 4-top tables with no help. Will be a very long time before returning to this location even though it is only about 3 miles from my... More

Service as friendly. Food was typical Cracker Barrel. Lemonade was too sweet. As are most, this place was very noisy.

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

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 place to take... More
