Reliable chain. This location has the consistent atmosphere and food that you would come to expect. They treated us well. They were prompt and the food was good.

Let me first say that my family LOVES Cracker Barrel. It is one of our favorite chain restaurants and we have eaten at many different locations in several states. Tonight's visit was the absolute worst dining experience we probably have ever had anywhere. First and foremost: the restaurant was not busy. We came in around 7:30 pm and there was... More

I worked at this location several years ago and can say the food quality has declined immensely! I told the server that my daughter and I both wanted biscuits and gravy, that I wanted the hashbrown casserole and she wanted apples, eggs, and sausage. His suggestion was that she get the Old Timer's breakfast--it included pancakes and she did not... More

I had country fried steak and it was not nearly as good as I've had at other Cracker Barrel locations further south. It was a bit greasy and not crispy. I think our server was new, but she was nice. Not a bad meal, just not one of the best.

I assume that everyone has their favorite foods at Cracker Barrel. I like chicken and dumplings and it tasted good. Service was pretty good, didn't have to wait for a table. It was Sunday night and Tuesday AM. Price is right, Fairly clean.
