The food is pretty good for basic southern American food. Very casual/diner-like. Great biscuits and gravy with descent service.

My wife and I stopped at tis particular Cracker Barrel for lunch on the way To Myrtle Beach.

This location did not disappoint us.

The restaurant is just off I-95 and is somewhat difficult to find. You have to pay attention to the signs when you get off the interstate. It was a busy day and the server was totally overwhelmed with many people who had pulled off the highway because of the traffic. She tried her best to serve us and the biggest... More

I made my husband stop at Cracker Barrel because I love their Chicken and Dumplings. When the server brought it out to me I was in shock. There was one tiny piece of dumpling a little bit of chicken. What! really? I called the server back and asked if I could have some dumplings. He was very nice and brought... More

Have not been to a Cracker Barrel in 20 years probably. Was glad to find new healthier options on the menu in addition to their traditional breakfast and burger options. Had very tasty Southern Trout and cheese grits. While wife enjoyed grilled chicken Caesar salad.

If they could just scale back the tacky stuff in their store and turn down the C&W music blaring from the speakers, this could be a good place to relax off the freeway. Average service, but food is good.

We were driving home from Florida and we found this location on our way. As always, each restaurant is sort of "off the beaten path" The highway sign indicated there was a Cracker Barrel on this exit but we could not find it withut using our GPS. All restaurants are set up the same inside andout. I always love the... More

I love to go to Cracker Barrel for any time of day. The food is always great and the service friendly. I'm a Southern cook myself but I love to eat here. I especially love shopping in the gift store.

I've always enjoyed coming to the Cracker Barrel and this time was no exception. It was busy and we still got our food in a very timely matter. My dinner was excellent. It was hot and tasty. I ordered the sampler with a few sides and everything was great. Service though is very slow. Not sure if that's a southern... More
