The first time ever we walked into a cracker barrel with NO WAIT TIME...The people were very friendly (I was visiting from CA) and we got seated right away. Our server was very nice but a little slow and she didn't come back to see if we needed anything.

The service canbe extremely slow here and the portions are quite small. It is always busy, so some folks must enjoy it. The last time I was here, there was lipstick on my coffee cup and the food was cold when it arrives. I think they can do better.

I recommend any of the breakfast items. Country fried steak is good as well. The place is always clean and the staff is very nice and helpful. If you want friendly service and good food at a decent price, this is the pace.

We come to Lake Cumberland annually and always start the trip with a family breakfast at Cracker Barrel. This year we had about 20 people in our party. Our food came out in sections which was fine, but the first section was almost done before the last section got their food. The waitresses were most accommodating but when it came... More

At any Cracker Barrel you can eat breakfast at any time. They have great Southern style breakfasts ranging from pancakes, to eggs any way you want them, to bacon, country or city ham and sausage, to healthier choices like oatmeal and granola/yogurt. Their lunches and dinners are pretty good too. Southern favorites like catfish, fried chicken and chicken livers, country... More

Always busy, and justifiably so. Hot biscuits and cornbread and really great food. Reasonably priced and always busy

I've never had a bad experience at any Cracker Barrel. The Somerset store is conveniently located and has a very friendly staff. I ate dinner there on Monday night and took 5 people out for a business lunch on Tuesday. Will be back!
