On the way to DragonCon (Atlanta, GA) we stop for the night in Chester, VA and make it a point to head for the Cracker Barrel. Even though we get there about 1/2 hour before closing, we are always greeting with a smile and the food is always fresh and tasty. Looking forward to seeing you in 2015.

Of course you know Cracker Barrel's food is always amazing. My absolute favorite thing there is the Hashbrown Casserole! But this store in particular is very fast. We're always seated quickly & food brought to us within the first 15 mins. It's a Sunday breakfast tradition!

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.

I have visited cracker barrel in NC, VA, and MD and by far this one is the worse. This was our second visit and it was still not a good experience. The wait staff was very attentive but the food was overcooked and just not what I am used to with cracker barrel. I will not be trying it for... More

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. I like the vintage candy, stuff you don't see every day. My server was quick and attentive. I would not order the chopped steak again, it was not too good, a little grisly.... More

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.
