“Great prices and great food”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

This is a really neat place to visit. The front of the restaurant is a store with many unusual items. There are toys, clothing, dishes, Christmas decorations, candy, candles, and so much more. Then, the restaurant is cozy with a huge fireplace going. There are all sorts of old items on the walls --- photographs, ads for items that no longer exist, sleds, and you name it. The food includes everyday specials (Monday through Friday), sandwiches, breakfast items, salads, nonalcoholic drinks (Cracker Barrel does not serve alcohol), and a nice dessert menu. We had the 1/2 pound sirloin steak with mashed potatoes and carrots and the sugar cured ham with hashbrown casserole (YUMMY!!!) and apple sauce. Every meal comes with cornbread and rolls. They are always warm. For dessert, we had frozen mug sundaes with toasted almonds. The price is always right. Unfortunately, the menu has changed a little and the pork BBQ is no longer on it. This is really sad, as it was excellent and not something that you can get in many restaurants. The waitstaff are extraordinary.

we had lunch here and the food was excellent, the server whose name was Catherine was so lovely. Her attention to detail was superb and she got everything right first time. Made the whole day better. The food was yummy and would go back again.

“Catfish for breakfast!”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

This was by far the best breakfast I can remember. I was really delighted to find their "Uncle Herschel's Favorite" breakfast included catfish as one of the meat options which was a much better choice than traditional bacon or sausage. This is a winner of a breakfast, at least for me, and so much better than a Grand Slam at Denny's. Uncle Herschel's Favorite has a bit of everything I like - perfectly cooked grits, biscuits and gravy, hashbrown casserole, 2 eggs, and now catfish. Service comes with a bit of southern hospitality and everyone is very polite, although like most Cracker Barrel's y'all needs to slow down a tad 'cuz this ain't no fast food joint.

“good surprise”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

for a chain the service was unbelievable. the food was good, nothing great, but good enough to come back for. tried 4 sides between us, all were good. ham and fish were also good. food came out so fast i thought they knew what we were ordering in advance. now the service part. seen the menu had the dinner trout was $2 more than the lunch trout. the dinner trout comes with 3 sides and the lunch trout comes with 2 sides. sides separately cost $2.35. since 2 sides were enough i ordered the lunch trout. assuming the price of the sides meant that was the difference between the lunch/dinner not having anything to do with the portion of fish. when i got the trout there was only a half a trout on the plate. waitress must have noticed my expression and asked right away if everything was ok. i said i wished i had known that the lunch was only 1 piece and i thought i read the dinner had 2 pieces. she said the dinner has an extra piece of fish and an extra side. she asked if i wanted the other piece and the side for an extra charge, she was not sure how much and would ask the manager. i said forget it, not a problem that this would be fine. 2 minutes later the manager comes over and asks if everything is ok. again i say everything is good and there was no mistake on their part i had ordered what i got, so, it was nice of her to ask but everything is good the service as well as the food. when we finish the waitress asks if i want to take home a piece of trout and a side, free. asked if she was kidding. no we want you to be happy. i tell her, how about i just get another trout and side now. i am still a little hungry. of course she says i'll be right back. comes back with another drink for me and my wife mentioning the food will be out in a couple miinutes. after we were done she wanted to know if we wanted another one of our drinks in a cup to go,free. i have only gone there for the outlets. now i will go there to eat, maybe go to the outlets while we are there. can't wait to try the breakfast.

“Average with nostalgia”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

Cheap food in a clean place is about the best I can say. If you want to eat decently you can get a salad and sandwich. You can also get any combination of the the most disgusting food America offers, mac and cheese, fried chicken or pork BBQ anyone?

There are loads of cheap tchotchkes in the gift store along with a great selection of nostalgic candies like Nik-o-liks, atomic fireballs, double bubble, black jack, clove and beemans gum, and turkish taffy.
