“Short walk from the Sleep Inn plus Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

This Cracker Barrel was just a short walk from where we were staying at the Sleep Inn. The wait was not long, food was great, and the staff was friendly. We always love Cracker Barrel...great food for the value plus it was just an added bonus that we could walk there:) Ate there twice during our stay and both visits were great!!

Cracker Barrel is really the only place to eat in Cave City...unless you go down to Bowling green, then there are tons of places to pick from !

“My favorite place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

I go to Cracker Barrel every chance I get. This particular one is always delicious and not a long wait for the food. The friendliest servers are here too. I just love it here and will definitely be back often.

“I'm not sure why there are so many if they are all like this.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

Ok, it's not a gourmet restaurant. But when you order "Dumplins" from a place that touts good homestyle cooking, you don't expect them to come cold in the middle because clearly the microwave didn't get them hot enough. The service was also less than average. Our waitress brought us the bill and looked surprised when we asked if we could please order some dessert. She clearly had better places to be and we were one of the last tables in her section... but that's where the hostess put us!
The one highlight- we were glad we pushed for dessert. The berry cobbler was phenomenal! Perhaps I just made a poor entree choice... it was only my second time at a cracker barrel. However, next time I'll go somewhere that I know we will truly be welcome- and it will show both in the food and the service.
