Stopped in for lunch and had a lovely time. To be honest our first impression was not very positive. When they seated us they put us (two adults and two teenage daughters) all the way in the back by the back door; away from every other patron. We wondered why they put us back in the boonies. Oh well, it... More

After eating at my first Cracker Barrel because we wanted to try something different than burgers, I found my true restaurant. We hit a couple of more Cracker Barrels on the way home. They have a map of all locations.

My family and I visited the Cracker Barrel in Lexington KY on 11 August 2016. I am not a cracker barrel fan, but my parents seem to love it. We arrived about 1:10 PM. I let my father and daughter out by the front door. By the time my mother and I parked the van and walked inside my father... More

In North Lexington this past week-end, we ate at this very good Cracker Barrel three (3) times. Excellent and friendly service, consistently --- you know what you are getting --- good food. Handy location just off I-64 with quick access to I-75.

We ate here while staying overnight on a return trip home to South Carolina. Service was good and the food is exactly what you would count on. Cracker Barrel is consistent in their offerings and tastes. We always enjoy stopping at them when we travel. For a good consistent family style meal. this place is hard to beat.

All day site seeing, and needed a quick meal to split and we found it at the Cracker Barrel. We split the Grilled aluminum foil Chicken/Vegi dinner and it was awesome. A great amount to split and the ticket with a drink and meal was only $13.44 with tax. Great friendly service too!

We had dinner here while staying at a local hotel. We were seated immediately, the server was friendly, and our food arrived quickly and as expected. Only minor complaint was that the line to checkout and pay was slow. Otherwise, it was everything we expect from a Cracker Barrel.

The employees were friendly and accommodating. The food left something to be desired. My dinner was pretty tasteless, and the ham steak was the thickness of two slices of lunch meat, and totally hard and dry. The atmosphere is pleasant enough, but not enough to warrant a return visit.

Cracker Barrel is consistent. You know what you are getting and the price is right. The only complaint here is that the coffee was very weak.

We were traveling so stopped at this restaurant - a reliable choice for the entire family. This one did not disappoint. Jeremy, our waiter, was super nice and the food was great.
