Cracker Barrel is a great place to stop for "traditional" comfort food and this one is no different. The breakfasts are delicious and more than filling. They are very good at special requests to limit salt, etc. Usually crowded on weekends and holidays so be prepared to wait. Walking around in the shop looking at the gifts and memorabilia will...

We stopped while traveling, the weather was cold, and rainy. Cracker Barrel was warm with a wonderful fire, which we sat close to. The food was excellent as always, with many low calorie or low fat selection to choose from. When our meal was over, we hated to leave, this was truly a very rejuvenating stop.

We feel that they don't give you enough food. Small portions. Some of the food was over cooked. We didn't get any drink refilles. The price was also to high.

Good place for old time comfort food. Meatloaf, chicken and dumplings, traditional breakfasts, etc. etc. Nice gift shop with replica memorabilia. Generally the same everywhere, no surprises here.

We stopped at Cracker Barrel after an early movie. We hadn't been in awhile cause it is always so crowded. Today was no exception, but after a short look around the store, the food was quick hot and good. The price is fair and the service was adequate. I had forgotten a good close place to to have a good... More

I recommend this Cracker Barrel location to anyone in the area. You can always depend on the food and service to be very good. I also recommend that you ask for a 4 star waitress or waiter. The number of stars indicates the accomplishments of the server and you can expect outstanding service from a 4 star server. The shopping... More

Food was great as always but service was terrible. The server never checked on us past the initial order and only refilled our drinks when we requested it while she was doing off the bill.

I love to come here as it is comfort food when I need it. Their breakfasts are great and they even have some for dieters such as me. I get the wholesome food (new menu) and use it to order or make suggestions. They even have turkey bacon! They have specials every day of the week in their main menu.... More
