Service was good, cleanliness no complaints, wait staff friendly, but the food disappointing. I ordered chicken and dumplings, with mashed potatoes as one of the sides. I was puzzled when the mashed potatoes were served with what they call "brown gravy", which is a beef-based gravy. That's what you get at Cracker Barrel if you want gravy on your mashed potatoes. Now, if you were to serve home-made chicken and dumplings at your home, wouldn't you put some of that same chicken gravy on the mashed? What a weird combination. Must be the brown gravy is cheaper -- sure tasted cheaper. This is not home-style cooking! Guess this just another reason to avoid chain restaurants.

We go here many times a month. They food is always good fresh and hot, the service is always friendly and prompt. I love the big fireplace and love shopping in the gift shop. I have never had a bad experience here.

The food is good and plentiful, the prices are very reasonable and the service is very good. Sometimes a little wait but shopping can be done while waiting. Restrooms are clean. I like going here!

Food is really tasty and I like that healthier options are being added to the menu all the time. The mashed potatoes are home made, and the onion rings are the best!
