I've come to this restaurant for many years. My brothers and sisters along with their spouses came from out of state to visit. We all have Cracker Barrel restaurants in our home towns. While going over the menu we entered into a conversation bragging about how great our home town Cracker Barrel's are. Of course I stood up for my... More

Crowded but it was Sunday. Good down home food. Meals that will stick with you. The decor is from places like your grandmother's kitchen...fireplaces, utensils from her kitchen. The store is packed with lots of stuff. Porch rockers and checkers. This place has a 'homey' atmosphere.

Was a short wait. We were told be 25 to 30 minute wait. We waited 15 minites. Staff was great. Food good. Enjoyed looking around the gift shop.

Very popular place, especially on Sunday, but waiting time reasonable and usually shorter than announced at the register. Very kind personnel, accommodating, quick. Nice Southern personality, no nonsense conversation, straight to the point. Just off the highway exit.

Went there for breakfast. First of all the biscuits were like hockey pucks. Told the waitress who apologized and noted some fresh biscuits were coming out of the oven..My question, why bring your customer dry hard pucks if you know they are stale. Got fresh hot soft biscuits. No butter or jam, had to ask for it. When food was... More

I took a long time to decide where to eat and drove out of my way to this Cracker Barrel and I am very glad that I did. Seating and service was immediate as there was a lull in customers. I chose the Sunday special with an extra baked potato and the baked potato was the worst part. It was... More

The food is always prepared prefect and very tasteful, excellent service by the staff. Right off the Interstate and close to several places to Lodge. Prices are very reasonable, and can't be beat for the traveler or local patron.

Standard Cracker barrel. Food was good, service was good (although he was a very strange character) good value. You know what you're going to get going to CB.
