The manager came to our table and cheerfully made several trips to the kitchen to check ingredient lists. We were able to put to together a meal that was safe for him to eat, filled him up, and was reasonably priced. Over... More

Cracker Barrel is always a safe choice. The food is good and the wait staff is usually prompt. Such was the case with this one. Alex was always there when we needed her and was very efficient.

Came for "Turkey & Dressing," BUT, Thursday is the day for that delicacy !!! The country ham was good, as was the veggies. Of course, the cornbread muffins are fantastic. Our wait, Andrew, was exceptional !!! Seriously, he was the best !!! Management was very attentive to the customers; a welcome feature !!!

The restaurant was a standard Cracker Barrel. The store seemed clean and nice. The service was a little slow. The food was good and we'll priced. The portions in general at Cracker Barrel are on the small side. I always love the store, it's fun to look around.
