Nice fire in the large fireplace. Great service. Food is always good with large servings. And then there is a nice shop with a good selection of x-mas items.

Driving through Lexington Ky and stopped here for dinner. Although busy, we were seated quickly and our server came by quickly. Lots of good comfort food to choose from but the breakfast skillet caught my eye. Scrambled eggs with sirloin tips, peppers, onions, mushrooms and cheese over roasted potatoes. For dinner! Why not? Oh, and it came with biscuits too!... More

The waitress was far more pleasant than the normal average waitress - and the food was great (as always)!

I love going to Cracker Barrel anytime of day in any place I see them. It's more than a restaurant....they have a very pleasant store to browse through as your waiting to eat or just stop in for the store. The store has great picks for self or gifts at very reasonable prices and seasonal décor with old time treats....it... More

It's very tough to review this because there was nothing to note about our experience. This is a very typical Cracker Barrel - nothing especially good and nothing especially bad. We had a very nice server. One thing that is interesting about the location is that it is right next to a Hustler store. So you have one of the... More

Traveling through from Indiana to Tennessee to attend a wedding celebration weekend and stopped for an early dinner... love the food at almost all Cracker Barrels BUT this one was exceptionally good. From the hostess, waitress to General Store staff and most importantly the food. Friendly and well worth the cost. Always enjoy the atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Close to the Hampton Inn Cracker Barrel always has good food id doesn't matter what you order. The staff was very nice....I like that Cracker Barrel will let seniors order from kids menu. Some of the other meals are just too big. We always eat at Cracker Barrels when traveling.....

First time at this Cracker Barrel. As with any Barrel we visit, it never disappoints. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. The food was plentiful and delicious. Clean surroundings and we love the quirky country decor. Our order was brought to us promptly even though the place was quite busy. The only drawback we saw was that the parking... More
