My husband and I had a great breakfast at this Cracker Barrel last weekend. The food was well prepared, and the serving size was perfect. We loved all the nostalgic decor, and the roaring fire in the fireplace.

Cracker Barrel is generally a good choice for breakfast, but on our visit to this location, the service was lacking. Mark, identified on his apron as a "Rising Star", was anything but. He came over without a smile or friendly greeting, and so I asked him how he was doing today. When he said, "well, I get off in two... More

Love Cracker Barrel. Always have. Great prices for a great quality and selection of items. Friendly staff and great location if you are staying at the La Quinta, simply walk across the Parking lot. Will keep eating her for years to come

We were seated after waiting 15 minutes. The waitress took a long time bringing our food. We had to ask more than once for straws and refills.

This is the 3rd time in a row where it took us about 2 hours to eat lunch. This time we had the usual, pancakes for one order and chicken dumplings for the other. We came in about 2:15PM, got seated about 2:25. They were busy hence the waitress was slow (which is understandable). We did not place order till... More

Service was a little slow. Training a new person. After that, it was fine. Great food. Good for the value. Can't beat it. We stopped here before when our son graduated from Navy boot camp. Good area.
