“Always A Great Stop along any Highway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

Cracker Barrel is a must when traveling along any highway. The more stars the better the server. A four star server has earned your respect of a quality tip.

“Diminished quality”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

This Cracker Barrel is no different than any other, however my opinion of this restaurant chain has changed from thinking it was a decent place to go for comfort food to not wanting to ever go back again. The food quality has just gone downhill so much, I won't go back anymore. My husband agrees. We have both been very disappointed the last 2-3 times. Again, the Bloomington location is as good as any other, the food is just not worth it anymore.

“Mediocre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

The service was fair, although the waiter seemed overwhelmed by the amount of tables he was serving. My entree was over cooked and served barely warm. The vegetables also were cool. This is the 4th time we have eaten here because it was convenient to the motel. This was the worst meal we have eaten there. The food was not inedible,just substandard for the Cracker Barrel chain. I would give them another try.
