“Low Key, Good Service and Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

Average Cracker Barrel. The staff was very friendly. The service was fast and the food was good. The only thing I noticed is there was not many people eating.

“Substandard Food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014

Our family dines at Cracker Barrels while traveling about a half dozen times per year. We go when we are interested in their consistency. Our dinner in Batesville was the first time we encountered disappointment with one of these meals; it was also the first time we arrived at a Cracker Barrel during the dinner hour to find the restaurant less than half full. Maybe these two first were related. Our dinner salad was filled with outdated lettuce, our steak was dry and leathery, and our meatloaf was bland as can be.

“No service for you!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

We waited for 40 minutes and no one ever came to our table to take our order. I'm pretty sure they knew we were waiting because they cleaned the tables around us and even swept under our table! We noticed some African American customers who came in and were promptly served. I hate to think that they refused us service because we're white. But after 40 minutes we simply walked out. I will avoid the town of Batesville in the future.

“Horrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014 via mobile

We were driving home to Texas from spring break visit to Tennessee and stopped in for a quick breakfast, service was horrible. Took forever to bring food then when we finally got it put of 4 meals only 1 was right so then we sent it back repeating our original order. After another long wait he finally came back with ANOTHER wrong order! Ugh my son was the only one who got to eat and we left still having to pay for the food we didn't even eat! And the pancakes were horrible! Never stop here! Better luck at McDonald's!!

“Worst Cracker Barrel ever!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Stopped here on the way to New Orleans for lunch on a Tuesday just before 1200. Had to wait 5 minutes to be greeted and seated. Waitress was very friendly and tried hard to keep the meal together, but the only that was correct were the drinks. There were 6 people in our party and the meals came at 4 different times with the last one just as everyone else was finished. The biscuits and cornbread was also delivered about 3 minutes before we had finished. Orders were incomplete and the chef salad was delivered without the vinegar and oil dressing requested. When the waitress finally came back, we asked for the dressing and she delivered 1 cruet. When asked about the other, she said it was pre-mixed. Poured it on the salad and it was only vinegar. The waitress delivered another cruet which turned out to be vinegar also. The manager was not available as he was fielding other complaints. Will never stop here again.
