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!

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!

Our waitress was so nice and listed to our order completely and was very pleasant to deal with. She was not in a hurry to get to the next table and got our Togo order as well. People like her are why we love eating here. Triple Forks Hunting.

I love Cracker Barrel! I can always count on it for a reasonably-priced delicious filling breakfast. I love the dining atmosphere - you do fill like you have walked into a sweet smelling log cabin. I like the rocking chairs, the checker boards, and the fire place. At this location (Store #70, Pelham, AL) the staff is very efficient and... More

We came in a Thursday night and they were out of the Thursday special, turkey and dressing. After placing our order they came back and were also out of meatloaf. 2 hours before closing.
