Traveling north and hitting lots of snow so pulled off and enjoyed one of our favorite travel eateries. The chicken salad sandwich was tasty and hubs' grilled chicken salad was good as usual. Our server was friendly and attentive! Good place to stop.

Went out with a large group of people today for Sunday dinner. The service was great. Our orders were taking quickly. Our food was bought out promptly. Everyone was satisfied with no complaints. Very enjoyable experience.

I hope that Cracker Barrel has recently changed its content. If that's the case, please change it back ASAP! Otherwise, what happened? I was in for lunch and ordered my go-to favorite, country fried steak, mashed potatoes, fried okra and biscuits. Immediately upon getting my food, it was evident that something was different. Turns out, everything was different. APPEARANCE: the... More

After a long day on the road, we stopped for dinner. We wanted a decent, dependable restaurant and knew we were in the right place. The wife got a veggie plate and I decided on a bowl of pinto beans, greens and corn muffins. Doesn't get much better than this. Everything was very good, especially the server Jill. Her timing...

We love this place, for being such a large franchise they still manage to have a country home feeling with great food and friendly staff. Love the gift store and the rocking chairs.

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
