Good meeting spot

Everyone enjoyed their meal, whether breakfast or lunch. We got a table quickly and service was prompt. We use this location to do a 'handoff' after grandparent camp in Durham with grandchild from DC. It's a nice midway rest and we miss the rush hour traffic.

Came here as it is near our hotel. As usual, the food was excellent (catfish, ribs, haddock). Really loved our waitress Sheri - super friendly and efficient and made sure we were happy with our meals and had drinks refilled, etc. would definitely recommend to any weary travelers looking for a nice and friendly relaxing meal.

Cracker Barrel has always been one of my favorite Breakfast Spots on the Go. Usually great service and great food every time. This visit was a little off the mark. The food was just average and had very little flavor and attention to detail. The service was average as well and it wasn't even super busy when we were there.... More

A stop fir a good meal on a 3,000 mile drive turned into anxiety and frustration. The waitress Sherry was so sick it sounded like brochitis and she was coughing into her hand and serving us food. I didn't want to touch the glass nor ask for anything else. This is the fault of management who should respect the food... More

I have been going to Cracker Barrels for years and my experience have been up and down. This time the waitress was fast efficient and provided very fine service. The Store was well stocked.

Lots of choices, everyone found something the liked. Food is average and fairly salty. Waitress was extremely pleasant and quick with refills. Clean. It was fine after a long day of travel. A plus is the breakfast for dinner option!

Lousy service. The waitress was slow. She (Linda M) messed up my order. Three tables were served and eating before us. We complained to the Manager who took off the price of one meal. However, he was mendacious with his excuse, saying that the restaurant has two kitchens, with one being slower than the other. If I owned Cracker Barrel... More

CB is located off I 95 on Rt 10 west. Easy access on/off interstate for travelers. Clean, fast service and good food are the mainstays of all CB.....but this location is exceptional.

Cracker barrels are fairly consistent with the quality of food. What can really vary is the service. We had an excellent server who was attentive and went the extra mile. We got extra corn muffins and biscuits with apple butter our favorites! The wait was only 5 minutes and the food came quickly. We always recommend Cracker Barrel, it's a... More
