We got caught in a major thunderstorm & were thrilled to find a Cracker Barrel where we could take refuge. We had a server who asked us every 5 minutes if we needed anything - but he forgot about the extra butter we asked for & was no where to be seen when we were ready for our check. He... More

We have eaten in a lot of Cracker Barrel restaurants when we travel. This has to be our worst experience. Service was poor, cold food, incorrect order and had to go ask for more drinks. Won't be stopping there again.

Plenty of food for the money. Staff is pleasant and very courteous. Menu offers a variety for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Decent food; lousy atmosphere. If you like unruly and screaming children you're in luck and this is the place for you. If not, order your food to-go and take it back to your hotel room so you can eat in peace and quiet.

Ordered the Rib Eye medium, well it came back crisp on both sides and very well done. If the place hadn't been so crowded and the rest of my table having to wait on me, I would've sent it back. Just took the knife and cut the top and bottom off. Everything else up to the regular CB standards. Our... More

We eat here often because we work close to this location. The food is always great and the staff is also friendly. Love to look around in the country store and shop for presents. Worth checking out this place

If you travel throughout the southeast, you will find Cracker-barrel restaurants along the interstate highways. This establishment offers something for everyone from breakfast (always an excellent choice) to dinner. I have always enjoyed eating and shopping here. Over the years, I have tried everything on the menu and I have always been pleased. I like this restaurant because of its... More

My wife and I enjoy Cracker Barrel when we are busy with projects at home and have no time to prepare meals. We live near Cracker Barrel here in Calera, AL and are so thankful to have this one in our area. We not only enjoy breakfasts, but also delicious fried catfish and vegetable meals. Their menu consists of almost... More
