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

As usual the food is just what you expect. This location excels at the down home type service. The food portion's however, compared to other locations, seemed quite small.

Your usual Cracker Barrel. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was good. They were also willing to make adjustments for those with dietary restrictions.

Saw the sign on the highway and took the exit. Odd way getting to the place as it is tucked behind the road. Typical Cracker Barrel. Service good and food good.

If you are into comfort food this is the place. it is right off 95 so it could be a great stop on your way to other places. It can be crowded at times but the wait isn't bad. You can spend your waiting time looking at all the stuff in the gift shop. You can get odd things like... More

We both had Trout for lunch & it was excellent! I had a lunch portion - grilled with no seasoning & it was moist & delicious. My sides of broccoli & baked sweet potato with cinnamon were also excellent. My husband had the dinner portion of the Lemon Pepper Grilled Trout with Lima Beans, Green Beans & Cole Slaw. He...
