This is a great place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I had the grilled fish for dinner. Good, tasty, done correctly. Tip: In cooler months, try to get placement in front of, or near fireplace, for the ambiance.

Invited by a friend and her family for a real american breakfast. And American it was! Big portion, eggs, sunny side up 😀, delicious pancakes with warm maple sirup. Loved it!

Cracker Barrel offers quick service and good healthy food at a reasonable cost. This particular store is no different, although the service was lacking this time - but it could have been an off day. We each had the Friday fish fry special, which was great. Lightly battered. Selections of merchandise in the store has changed, and I miss not... More

Lots of great reviews for this CB, but we can't join in. Tried calling in our order (traveling I-75) and kept being bumped to their fax line. Turns out that's what happens with call overload on their system. Had we known, we would have tried the next CB up the road. We spent almost 30 minutes getting our to go... More

This place could be packed with 100 people and still get you seated without a wait and have you out within an hour. If you're in the hankering for some country comfort food, this will hit the spot.

Love the shopping. They always have something on sale, that I really need. LOL. Food was FAST. Biscuits and corn muffins were really good. Don't like that they add ham etc to greens and beans.

Although crowded it did not take very long to be seated as a party of 7. Managers were all hands in cleaning tables and helping. Angela our waitress was nothing less than outstanding! Food was a mix of breakfast and lunch and all came at our table at the same time. Tasty hot food with excellent service! Great family time... More

Cracker Barrel is always bright and cheerful and a good place to eat. We are always impressed with the staff who try very hard. This is only one of two places I have tipped a busboy for his hustle.

We had the apple strudel french toast - Wonderful! Restaurant was quiet this morning and we enjoyed that. We also enjoyed the store - it's so much fun. Got kinda crowded after a few minutes of shopping, which is hard to do when there are so many people coming in. Other than that the breakfast was great, the service was... More

The food has way too much black pepper, the staff can be rude and lazy, way too loud and costs way too much, did I mention that I LOVE the store? Have fun, be safe
