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.

So glad the restaurant was in close proximity to our room because breakfast offered at Baymont was WAY below average.

From roast beef (me) to Chicken and dumplings (wife) the food was great. If I had to pick about anything the corn bread was a little dry.
