Mrs. B and I can't pass a Cracker Barrel Restaurant for breakfast and sometimes dinner. Your comfort level immediately rises when you enter. You know the way since they set them all up almost identically. We both had the Uncle Herschel's Favorite. Two eggs, Buttermilk Biscuits,Fried Apples, Hashbrown Potatoes, Grits, and Hickory Smoked Ham, Bacon and sausage. YUM!! Did not... More

We were here in November for breakfast & the food was great. The service was excellent & with a smile. Sat right by the wood burning fireplace & it was cozy & warm. The food was delicious with some special treats & side dishes. There is also a cool gift shop with a wonderful, friendly attendant named Mindy. Will be... More

We've eaten breakfast or lunch here a couple of times while visiting the nearby outlet stores. We like Cracker Barrel and often choose it for a meal stop while on a road trip. They all provide nearly identical experiences, no matter what part of the country you're in. This one is no different. You either like it, or you don't.... More

I am a local resident and did visit this location often. However I won't be back after my last visit. Our service was so slow! I always expect slow bad service here but this was over the top. We were 8 people and they had two different waitresses take our order. One took one side of the table and the... More

I have been to this particular Cracker Barrel numerous times and have always enjoyed great food and great service. I always thought this was a really good example of the chain. I usually order the same lunch so I was very surprised at how much the food quality had slipped since my last visit. The floor was filthy in the... More

Always a good choice for those on the road grabbing food though the employees could be a bit more professional...they shouldn't be talking about customers in front of other customers or complaining about a crying baby with that child's parents right there saying how annoying it is...though that's not the restaurants fault nor does it reflect the store itself...good food...

Were else can you rock in chairs out front and have the best county cooking ever. The food was good. Breakfast is 24/7. The county way of fixing chicken is great there. A manager named Monica was asking how the food was and I had to tell the truth, Great. To make even better she gave me a veteran pin... More

We arrived and checked in because it was "packed". We were told a 20-25 minute wait...perfect timing because that gave us plenty of time to look around the gift shop! So many "pretties" to look at. We were called for our table. Promptly seated and waited on. We got our meals in a timely manner, food was hot & great!... More

A very nice Cracker Barrel. The store was kept tidy even though it was very busy. Decked out for Christmas. Our server was very nice. Food was really good.
