Being British, grits take some getting used to. When they arrive in an almost liquid form, that pushes the limit. I have had good grits, these were not good and my partner left them. I don't quite get refill cups of coffee either, if the coffee is good, why would you need a refill? This is not good coffee. The... More

Food is so-so. I guess I don't understand people's love of this restaurant. Second one I've eaten in and each time was not impressed

The food was excellent!! It was refreshing to have a hot home style meal served to us! My fiance travels for work so we eat out 3-4 times a week. The downfall was the wait staff, definitely left you wanting,our waitress actually threw FROZEN butter onto or table!

I stayed at the Country Inn walking distance from this location and I was VERY pleased with the meal. Next time I'm back in the area I'll definitely be grabbing a bite to eat.

My son and I walked over to the Cracker Barrel from our hotel, it was our very first visit to a Cracker Barrel restaurant! We had been driving all day and wanted to take our meal and eat in our hotel room, which we were able to do because of the carry-out option. Once we placed our order we had... More

The cloning process continues where I can tell no difference from this location from others in the country I have visited. This store already has Easter candy and decorations out for sale. All the products still looked like good quality. The only new thing I learned was you can checkout audio books and return them at a different location. This... More

Heading down 95 S enroute to Atlanta, I made a quick stop to visit family in Chester, VA. Right off the highway but tucked away in the back parking lot was Cracker Barrell. We had a 15 min wait to sit and the hostess was lovely. Once seated, our server really had her hands full with the constant free refills... More
