Deja Vu All Over Again

Cracker Barrel is always bright and cheerful and a good place to eat. We are always impressed with the staff who try very hard. This is only one of two places I have tipped a busboy for his hustle.

Although crowded it did not take very long to be seated as a party of 7. Managers were all hands in cleaning tables and helping. Angela our waitress was nothing less than outstanding! Food was a mix of breakfast and lunch and all came at our table at the same time. Tasty hot food with excellent service! Great family time... More

We had the apple strudel french toast - Wonderful! Restaurant was quiet this morning and we enjoyed that. We also enjoyed the store - it's so much fun. Got kinda crowded after a few minutes of shopping, which is hard to do when there are so many people coming in. Other than that the breakfast was great, the service was... More

The food has way too much black pepper, the staff can be rude and lazy, way too loud and costs way too much, did I mention that I LOVE the store? Have fun, be safe

I've gone to CB for years, and used to love their food. Over the past year though, things there have deteriorated. So THIS REVIEW DESCRIBES THE FREQUENT, RECURRING ISSUES at CB. SERVICE is awful. I don't know if it's the lack of training or poor hiring. Some servers are friendly but incompetent. Other workers are simply unaware that they are... More

It's a Cracker Barrel. The food was passable but cheap, filling but in no way interesting. Service was friendly and efficient. Atmosphere was, well, Cracker Barrel. A step above fast food, a step below just about any decent restaurant.

On our recent trip to the Great Smokey Mountains in Sevier County, we must have passed 30+ Cracker Barrels. Seems safe to refer to Cracker Barrel as an "Iconic American Institution." At any rate, we are glad to be home. We know to avoid the breakfast, lunch, and dinner masses! Taking a PM early dinner at 3:00 - 3:30 ensures... More

Arrived around 4:30-5 pm on Wed March 19. Was seated and a male waiter served us water. We asked if we could look over the menu for a minute. He left. After a few minutes we put our menus down. 20-25 min passed and we finally caught a waitress. She said the only male waiter they had went home. ?????... More

We had lunch at this facility. It seems they were training someone new on the grill, the food was slow, the service was slow, it took a long time to get to our table when we arrived. I am sure it is tough with the racetrack and bike week events. The staff looked exhausted. My husband commented that the men's... More

My family loves Cracker Barrel. Everyone always finds something they like. And the fact you can always get breakfast makes the kids happy. The daily specials are great, too. A couple favorites are chicken and dumplings, catfish, Sunday fried chicken and the pot roast dinner. They also have a large selection of delicious sides. And to finish our meal, the... More
