“Average food at reasonable cost”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

Restaurant is convenient to I20 in eastern Meridian, MS. On a wait when we visited on a Sunday night recently. When we were seated waiter was slow getting to us and slow to get our drinks and take our order. Wait staff in general seemed to be over assigned and stressed. Food was as ordered but had to ask for condiments and biscuits that were ordered. The biscuits were over baked and hard. Would say this was average experience at best...Cracker Barrel is very inconsistent from location to location...the one near our home is very good...realize service and quality is a function of location management.

“Inferior service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

Cooks need to learn how to cook bacon.Eveytime I have eaten there in the past six months I have had to send it back because it is so undercooked that it is transparent. They never blot the oil from bacon or sausage before putting it on the your plate. Servers are nice, but seem to be afraid to take food back to the kitchen when there is a problem. Food used to be very good and customers could be sure that whatever they ordered was cooked to perfection.

“Do the cooks even read the tickets??”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

My granddaughter and I wanted an egg sandwich, mine, scrambled / cheese ,tomato, lettuce and mayo on sourdough ww plain, not toasted or grilled, hers over hard ,toasted, plain hash brns/cheese....came out both over hard , no lettuce, sent back... next try, no lettuce and toasted manager comes out.. He takes it back and returns, no lettuce.... hash browns cold,no cheese.... Even the manager couldn't seem to get his act together. An apology,but no offer to comp, not too concerned.C.B.used to be my favorite place to eat breakfast anywhere we went ,but the uniform quality has gone down....

“Good country cooking.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

If this tells you anything, we eat there almost every Sunday. The food is good and the people that work there are super nice. I have always liked everything I have gotten there. I get the rainbow trout most of the time. I also love the chicken and dumplings, roast, chicken tenders, etc.

“Where has service gone”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

Server forgot to turn ticket in for order and it took over 30 minutes before they even noticed. She didn't even come check on us.
Food is still good at the Barrell, but service seems to be a forgotten thing as in five differant stores and states the service is going down.
