“A little pushy at the register”
Reviewed May 8, 2012 via mobile

The food was good here, as at most Cracker Barrel restaurants. Consistancy throughout this chain of restaurants is pretty good. One thing that I did notice, is that there are a few employees, as well as all the cashiers trying to sell you extras (particularly pushy at this location).

“Typical Cracker Barrel”
Reviewed December 10, 2011

Nothing bad, nothing exceptionally great. Always good, with friendly staff. When we eat there, it's usually for breakfast.

“Always a good place to stop!”
Reviewed November 8, 2009

We've eaten at many Cracker Barrel's over the years, while we travel throughout the Northeastern and Southeastern States. We enjoy eating at these as we don't have any Cracker Barrel's in Canada. All of these restaurants/stores have the same set-ups (you enter the store, at the front entrance, and the restaurant entrance is to the back, left of the store). The prices are pretty reasonable and most of the time, the meals are filling. The biscuits and corn muffins are always tasty. With certain meals, you get to chose 2 or 3 'sides', which is great, as you get your own choice, and there is a good variety! We always enjoy looking thru' the store area, an it's good to do that while awaiting your meal. Alot of the product choices in the stores haven't changed much, in the many years we've been going to them (maybe these are popular items?), but we always buy something every trip. The seasonal items change tho', of course! These restaurants/stores are quite popular, as the parking lots always have alot of cars in them. I did notice, both Cracker Barrels that we stopped at, on this trip, weren't as busy (maybe due to the recession??). There used to be line-ups. Maybe it just depends on their locations.

“Another chain, but usually a good choice.....”
Reviewed October 13, 2009

Nothing much to say about Cracker Barrel; I noticed it was not in the top restaurant lists for Jackson, MI and it should be. It is near all the main chains, and is always busy. Good service-everyone was very friendly and helpful during my 3 visits recently. A very nice choice of gift items in the gift shop. As always, food is decent, portions good, prices fair. A basic review, but now it will be known to visitors as an alternative to visit.
