A great lunch

I seem to be eating at Cracker Barrels a lot lately, probably because they're so good and everyone likes to eat there. We stopped for lunch on our drive home. Thursday's special is turkey, stuffing and cranberries. I also had the mashed potatoes. Everything was delicious including the cornbread... read more

The meal was just OK at this location for this particular meal. As we were traveling through, and it did fill up with probably mostly locals, the so so meal may have been a quirk. The service was good.

Do we really need a review of the Cracker Barrel? It's great. It is clean and offers an extensive menu. The tables are too small for all the food they bring to you. The gift shop is always current. If they served liquor, they'd be perfect.

I love Cracker Barrel and whether we're at home or traveling go there quite often. Unfortunately this Cracker Barrel location didn't live up to most of our other Cracker Barrel experiences. The positives: food was good quality, restaurant & bathrooms were clean, shopping area had lots of fun and unique things out for Easter. The main negative was the service,... More

Everyone ordered items on the menu with no substitutions. It took 20 minutes more to get... More

This is a nice Cracker Barrel, with great wait staff. Food is always "down home" here. They were in need of a latch on the ladies room handicapped stall, though!!

Who doesn't like Cracker Barrel. Food is always hot and tasty and the gift shop always makes my wife happy. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner...you can't go wrong.
