“One of the best Cracker Barrels ever!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

I generally am not a big CB fan partly due to inconsistent quality of food/service, but this CB should be the model for other CB's. Service was excellent-employee/waiter were incredibly friendly and efficient and food was right on. I would highly recommend this CB, especially to those staying nearby.

Note: I think it is incredibly unfair that other poster gave this restaurant one star simply because poster walked into restaurant that didnt meet his/her dietary needs(but they order dumplings) Most know that CB is a southern influenced restaurant. Loved the 'it was a cultural experience..' statement from poster too. BTW-they do offer low carb items on their menu (salads too).

“GOOD FOOD GOOD PRICE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Food is always good at Cracker Barrel You never need to worry if the food or service is good. Nice to be located by our hotel so no need to drive somewhere in an unfamiliar town.

“Warning”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We decided on this restaurant based on the reviews but found ourselves a bit surprised. We are from the western part of the United States and not use to all of the fried food and gravy they
eat here in Kentucky. Even the vegetables are cooked with oils. I ordered the grilled chicken tenderloins with dumplings and green beans trying to avoid the fried food. It was a cultural experience and interesting to experience but we will not go back. We love the people in Kentucky. They are friendly hospitable people. If you are looking for fried comfort food this is the place, just know there isn't much on the menu if you are working to keep your cholesterol or weight down.
