“Great Food Slow Inattentive Service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

We were seated immediately by the friendly hostess and a short time later was given menues by the waiter. Approx. 10 minutes later we got our waters and were able to order. We asked for coffee and rolls to be delivered before our entrees but we waited another 10-15 minutes before we got the coffee....minus the rolls. Waiter for got the creamer and after another server brought our food, had to ask her again for creamer. The food was excellent but the server , even though very nice/friendly, was scattered brained and distracted......forgetting some of our food for example.......like I said, the food was good but the service was lacking.

“Home made goodness”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

The food here is always wonderful, a taste of home ready soon after you order it. Breakfast here is a favorite reason to visit with real southern home made foods, but lunch and dinner are great as well--try the carrots! Great food and pretty good prices too.

“So So”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

The service was much better than usual but the coffee and the blueberry muffin were bland. Muffin wasn't even heated and the coffee barely tasted like coffee.

“A falling star in the chain restaurant field”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

At one point in time, Cracker Barrel was something we could count on. We stopped in for that reason as we found ourselves in Junction City, needing something for lunch and looking for something familiar. We went with the daily special of baked chicken and dressing. Everything was dry and tasteless. They'd have been better off with Stove Top Dressing and Jiffy Mix corn bread. There was a Bar-B-Que restaurant next door I almost pulled the trigger on giving a try. After we were finished, we both wished we'd have given the unknown a shot. I will say that with the meal costing only $5.99 each, at least the price was right. It's just to bad the food lived up to the low price with low quality.

“Yum!”

I love the Friday night fish fry! Kids have good time. Service was good, check out was a little slow.
