Cracker Barrel is normally an excellent place to get a quick fulfilling meal. The food and service at this restaurant don't quite live up to the norm. The service seems to be very slow and the food is not the best I've had.

When on the road, we always enjoy stopping at Cracker Barrel for hearty country cooking. This was no exception. Our turkey dinners - the Thursday special - hit the spot. Service was also quick and friendly. We also had a chance to pick up some cute items from the sale area in the gift shop. In our experience, to see... More

Cracker Barrel is not only for great country cooking but also has fantastic shopping for last minute Christmas gifts! Instead of heading to the malls, I think we can get everything we need right here. Plus, we can also have a great breakfast to get us started. Cracker Barrel is one of our favorite places to eat and to shop!... More

The last 2 times we have ordered at Cracker Barrel it has been for take out. It has been very easy and since we leave nearby everything was still warm. Much better than fighting the crowd and noise. You still have to put up with the crowds shopping for treasures.

I love the cornbread, slathered with melted butter. It tastes just like my grandmother's. The veggies are cooked and seasoned just right. The service is good and quick. I LOVE the chicken and dumplings. The meatloaf is yum. I forget about the chocolate and blackberry cobblers. With ice cream. To die for!

Yes its a chain and yes it mainly comfort food but by our standards its always been a "Go To" place when you just need some good food in a comfortable atmosphere. On both occasions we were seated promptly and service was very good. It's enjoyable and inexpensive. We'll never stop going to the barrel when we just need to... More

RECOMMENDED: When we are just looking for a good meal and familiar experience, we choose a Cracker Barrel! This one is good, service is always good and the food is as expected, good! You can't go wrong with Cracker Barrel on Cahaba Valley Road!
