Had a very good experience for our brunch visit. The server was friendly and the service was great & quick. Food was very good, and their biscuits were amazing. The staff at the front reception near their store was very friendly as well. The setup and decor of the premises was quaint and inviting. Would visit again if in the... More

We had great experience at a Cracker Barrel in New England so were hoping this would be as good an experience. unfortunately not. Wait staff forgot drinks order then came back to tell us that the sides we ordered weren't available. The kitchen got the order wrong and we had to wait for one of the meals which, even after...

Everything my wife and I ordered has a strong chemical taste that resembles plastic that got too hot. Our water glasses, tea, coffee and juice. Shocked at a company this large, bring in filtration or bottled water. It ruined my dinner, I was too nervous to think it is in the food as well. How can others not taste this?... More

Lack of management really shows from the hostess not being around to the cooks serving side items in coffee cups. Food came out cold, order was wrong. Our server was nice enough but that doesn't make up for the food and the hostess. Probably won't be back.

If you have been to any Cracker Barrel, then you've been to this one. This is not meant to be negative. The food and atmosphere are always predictable and if you have your favorites then you know it will be consistent.

We've been to many Cracker Barrel restaurants, but unfortunately this was one of two worst ones we've ever been to. We both had Trout which was very good. Our server, Heather Ann was very personable & pleasant. However, she was extremely busy & because of the problems with our order, the service was slower. For my sides, I ordered the... More

My daughter and I had breakfast here on 9-1. For the same price Nudy's café has a much better quality breakfast than cracker barrel. My daughters two biscuts were the size of silver dollars, and almost as flat. I think they were probably left overs from the day before but served anyway. Will not be back anytime in the near...
