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.

It was nice to go with my family to Cracker Barrel. Service is great and the food is delicious! I tried the campfire chicken meal. It was so good, fresh and hot. It was wrapped in aluminum foil. I wish it was around all year long. I can never leave there without eating fried apples. It's out of this world!... More

We needed something that was affordable, but wanted to sit down and enjoy ourselves. This is the place. Perfect time to go at 7:45-8:30 it was not crowded and we got our food before I could play 2 games of the peg game that's at your table. My meal was $5.00 and I brought a biscuit home for later.

Had dinner here after a long day of sight seeing in Chicago. Food and service was great. I'd definitely eat here again if I was staying in the area.

So you're on a driving vacation and you want something other than fast food. Try Cracker Barrel. The staff here is very friendly, personable and efficient. We were here over the past weekend and it was only a short time to wait to be seated. Everything on the menu tastes great. I had the Cracker Barrel sampler and it was... More

I have never had a problem in this resturant. The food is always made the way you ask and the servers are very friendly. The only bad part is this place is always packed so you have to get there early or you'll wait forever.

I love the little store when you enter. It's really fun to look around in it. The food is a taste of being in the south.Of you like gravy, this is the place for you. Otherwise, order it on the side like I do because I don't want to drown my food in gravy. Lots of chicken options like country... More

If you walk away from a Cracker Barrel hungry, it's your own fault. HUGE menu. We had lunch and breakfast there on our recent vacation. 1st time at this one, but we were not disappointed. "Down home" food, but you can also find figure friendly if you look. If you've never been to one, it's nostalgia oriented and also has... More

This is a unique restaurant with a large gift shop and all of the walls are covered with unique antiques for your viewing. Large wheel chair accessible bathrooms. Delicious breakfast offerings including things like thick bacon and grits. Plus some great home style lunches and dinners. If you go on a cold day the restaurant even has a large wood... More
