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.

Loved the gift shop. I bought a few things from there while waiting for our table (We had a large group.). Server was very nice and the food was great!

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!

Food was okay, service was okay. Manager looked around then walked back in the kitchen, even after a good 30 service men came in! What ticked me off was 4 of the 8 parking spaces RIGHT outside was filled with STAFF. You can see one guy with pony tail walking from his red car! Couldn't believe it. Most of the... More

We haven't eaten at this restaurant for a very long, long time because it was not friendly and didn't care to bother with me and my food allergies. The waitress and the cook did not care. Our food was overcooked, dried up and should not have been served. We think they would have preferred we walked out. So, we tried... More

We were here for breakfast on a Saturday.... Short wait, very friend waitress. We had our 6yr old granddaughter with us... And a bit picky.
