Good food

Convenient off of I95. The staff and food were good for a chain restaurant. The service was fast, makes for a quick stop and back on the road again without losing too much travel time.

I hate this place. The service is awful. The portions are insanely small,.so it's overpriced. The setting is okay, but not worth it

Food and service gets worse every time I go there. Slow service, cold food. Don't ever get fried chicken livers because they are so hard they can hardly be cut. About the only thing that is consistent are pancakes.

It's a Cracker Barrel . Good food. Good prices. Felt more rushed at this one than we usually feel. We try to stop at these because they are so consistent.

Our waitress never brought us cornbread, we asked for dressing, and got gravy. The meal was advertised as having stuffing, in which we got none. Waitress was lousy.

There's usually too many people and the gift shop is not large enough to accommodate, but it's very homey.
