This is a great place to go for good food at very affordable prices! The service is always quick. Make sure to take time to check out all the stuff in the store.

After an afternoon of visiting lighthouses we were starving, and on our way to the hampton inn we found a cracker barrel. My wife loves the store and the food, so we went there for the food. Got waited on by Heather, and she did an outstanding job. Had the fried shrimp, which came with 3 (three!) side dishes, which... More

A typical classic Cracker Barrel experience whereby the food is good, plentiful and reasonable. Service was pleasant, quick and warm. We lucked out and were seated quickly. Plenty of parking in front of the restaurant. Easy walk from the Doubletree hotel next door. All in all --- very good. Would return.

This Cracker Barrel serves fast, friendly, home-cooked meals. When I am traveling on my own it's nice to get a little comfort food. This Cracker Barrel always serves it up right!

This was a bit hard to find, but we finally spotted it, near the Doubletree Hotel. We were in town for an overnight and a ball game. You do enter through the gift shop, which was not a big deal and were seated by a diffident waitress. Tonya, our server, was full of life and explained the menu to us... More

Service can be spotty...turnip greens are good. The rest needs seasoning and a bit less packaged flavor
