“Love Love Love Cracker Barrel”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Dinner for two and always dependable. Food is delicious and prompt and we're a sucker for the hot biscuits & jam.

But I did have to go back to the hotel and get a sweater.....too cold.

“Quaint but a little tired.”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

What used to be an amazing experience and GREAT "home cooked" meals, has gotten a little frayed around the edges and tired. The shoppe attached to the restaurant sells PRICEY things to the visitor... sort of "old timey" trinkets, toys, and decor, as well as nifty gadgets and candy. The food used to be generous, hot, tasty... and has , more often than not in the past year, begun to arrive at the table cold, poorly prepared (in one visit we had egg shells in one entree and a LONG hair in another), and of significantly reduced portions. I used to swear by bringing guests to our hometown, to this place, now we will be passing right by.

“Wish I would have read reviews first”
Reviewed February 28, 2013 via mobile

What an awful meal. Stopped for dinner as it was near motel and we we re tired of driving. Huge mistake. Waiter seemed to be eager, but it doesn't compensate for the terrible food. Ordered hamburger steaks. Super dry and cold. Even the veg was barely warm. Smothered the meat with ketchup andhad to use a steak knife to cut it. And they were ordered as med. Corn muffins tasted like flour and leavening ingredients. Sorry to say, the meal was disgusting. We won't be stopping there again

“Come on in y'all, and rest a spell!”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

And don't stop here if you are passing by on the Interstate!
We walked in. As we were being seated by the hostess, our server blocked us from sitting down by asking for our drink orders. We thought this was a good sign, strange as it was.
Not so. Another server brought us our water, 10 minutes later. tried to give us napkins but they were soaking wet. We never did get any other than those wrapped around our silverware. She also took our menus, but not our order. Again, strange.
Another 5 minutes and finally our server came back to take our order. The problem, she took the orders from three other tables before turning ours in.
Another 15 minutes and dinner finally arrived, lukewarm.
The food was standard Cracker Barrel, better than the last time we were at one, but not as good as they used to be.
There seemed to be a correlation between who your server was and how quickly your dinner could be accomplished. We saw one couple at the table behind my husband, with another server who got their dinner before ours. And five minutes before our dinner arrived, a couple sat down to my right. A different server came immediately to their table, took their order, shared some photos on her cell phone (they obviously knew each other) and less than five minutes after our dinner arrives, so did theirs.
I only see three reviews here, so perhaps they are new. And we were staying at a nearby hotel so luckily, we were not in any hurry.

“Excellent food and Service”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

This Cracker Barrel is convenient to I75. We eat here often when my grandson has a soccer game since we live about 40 miles east. It is typical for a Cracker Barrel but the service is fast, food is excellent and prices are also good. For good home style food, you can't go wrong.
