You can't get the best service and food any other place. Great service, great food and awsome place to be with family or friends.

This restaurant was so full there was a long waiting list to get in, we did wait because we prefer Cracker Barrel to Denny's, which was adjacent on the same lot. We had a great server, she was very attentive and the food was very good.

It's amazing how every Cracker barrel has the same layout, never a problem to make your way through the maze of merchandise to get to the bathroom.

we had our dinner last night at Cracker Barrel. The food and service were always excellent ! Cracker Barrel employees exhibit how successful team work is ! We cannot find any reason to say anything negative ! The food is always hot and excellent. It is the most friendliest place you could ask for !

I had dinner at Cracker Barrel on two consecutive nights while staying Chester for the Bike Virginia event. Service is smooth and swift and the food is high quality. The trout with two side dishes was a bargain. The following night the new campfire chicken was delicious.

What can you say, for a "Chain", it's great food at a great price. I love the roast beef! and the homemade chicken and dumplings; just Grandma used to make! Love the food and the atmosphere, and it's Family Friendly!
