When entering, one finds a gift shop - filled with treats, souvenirs and clothing, etc - and, if there's a wait for a table, there is lots of rocking chairs just outside the door to lounge on while waiting. The food itself ... well, the portions are huge! (at least they are compared to where I'm from... for instance, 4... More

Stopped in for a quick dinner. They weren't very busy at the time so I was seated quickly. Server was great. One of the quickest meals I've ever received. Food was delicious as usual.

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...
