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!

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.

Stopped here for dinner after traveling all day. The place was very busy but we were seated right away. Our order came out quickly and tasted great. Happy travelers!

It was Sunday lunch and the place was packed. While searching the parking lot for a space, I began to doubt my choice. Having been in the business, I know Sundays can get ugly quick. A ravenous family plus a busy restaurant rarely equal satisfaction. A 20 minute wait in the rocking chairs only intensified my angst. The buzzer lit... More

Love the shopping while we waited for a table. The wait was only 10 minutes and they were very busy. Found my niece's baby a sweet pair of boots with the American flag on them. Then we had a great Breakfast. Everyone enjoyed the meal they ordered. Pancakes,eggs,Turkey sausage, and the potato casserole was fantastic good me.
