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.

I had a business breakfast here. The wait staff were quick and very accommodating to our needs. I would return for any meal.

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.

Whether it's chicken and dumplings, pot pie, roast beef platter, meatloaf, or just picking your own vegetable platter, always a crowd pleaser! The corn bread muffins are delish!
