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.

Okay, I'm a homer and love Cracker Barrel. It's down home cookin' at its best. To me it's all good even when I get the usual favorites. Tonight we were seated immediately and serve within 10 minutes. Friendly people, clean facility great food at a great price. 5 stars
