My family and I visited this location over the weekend the food was disappointing. My wife and I both ordered the chicken fried chicken breakfast plate and it was awful. The chicken was very dry and tough. The eggs were to be over easy and they were more like a fried egg. The best part of the meal was the... More

My husband and I went to dinner this evening. He ordered Mama's French Toast breakfast and I ordered the roast beef dinner with mashed potatoes, corn and cabbage. As I began eating, I noticed a lump in my mashed potatoes hat did not seem normal, upon further investigation I noticed it was a bunch of staples. I alerted our server,... More

Came with my family and grandfather before our grandmothers funeral and was pleasantly surprised. The waitress was so kind and accommodating! Service was excellent and the pancakes and eggs were just what we needed to get us through the long day ahead of us. Many thanks Cracker Barrel Staff!

We have not been to a Cracker Barrel in several years. We have gotten tried of places where the quality of food has gone down hill. The food was good and severed hot not warm or cold like other places. The service was good but the only draw back was the noise level in the dinning room.

I think my experience would have been much better if I had not gotten an upset stomach five minutes after eating. We had to leave the restaurant right after we ate instead of hanging out and shopping . My family had good food. I had a vegetable plate and it just tasted like it had alot more grease and butter...

This is an excellent cracker barrel. Service was super friendly but more importantly the food was awesome. Get the pecan pancakes they are the best thing on the menu and sit by the fire place when it's cold. Very nice. ..

The Wife and I stopped here as part of a movie and diner nite. We have been here multiple times. After 8pm and the crowds were less. Wait staff attentive and didn't have to wait long for our meal.
