When we arrived we were the only one in the restaurant, server was prompt and nice but because she didnt smile at all the whole time she served us, she looked in a bad mood, but she took our orders quickly and food came out very fast and was very good! Please note that toasts dont cone with your eggs... More

I've eaten at this location weekly for almost a year. It never fails - even with 4 kids. The wait staff is always superb and well, the food, you just can beat down home southern cooking while in one of the Northern most towns! :)

The thing about Cracker Barrel is food wise it's pretty similar no matter where you go. I can't honestly say that I've an exceptionally different meal at any Cracker Barrel. It's not that the food is bad at Cracker Barrel, it's just never different. This isn't a bad thing either in my book, it pretty much guarantees that if you... More

We enjoy this restaurant when we pass through Watertown. The staff is very friendly and efficient. We often order chicken tenders and lots of vegetables. It's nice to have fried okra up north! The baked chicken I had recently was not my favorite - it was a small piece, with not much meat on the bone. I love the sweet... More

Year after year, we eat here when heading south or when staying in Watertown. It never fails us. The service is great and the breakfast is fantastic. No visit would be complete without a little shopping in the store. One of our favourites!

Cracker Barrel is a chain that we enjoy on road trips. There are times where we just want to sit, relax and be waited on, enjoying predictable food. This location is a bit inconsistent. We are usually seated quite quickly but the hostess and wait staff are unpredictable. It varies from very friendly one visit, to indifferent another visit. We... More

I think all Cracker Barrels are good and it was nice to find one that was easy to get to from the highway. Lots of handicapped parking close to the front door is a big asset for me. We both had breakfast in the middle of the day and bacon, eggs, grits, and biscuits are a great meal anytime. I... More

Our server was new, but she did an excellent job. The food is good, the atmosphere is cozy. The store is always a fun place to visit before or after your meal.

Thank Michael S
