“Typical”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

This was a typical Cracker Barrel. A little crowded but still good service. They gave free blacked-eyed peas that were leftover from New Year's Day.

“Cracker Barrel is the place to eat.”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Homestyle cooking at its best! Breakfast is served all day. The waitstaff are always friendly and accommodating. The country store is one of a kind! We always enjoy stopping here to eat and browse.

“Typical tasty food, service was cheerful but poor, bathroom was filthy.”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

Typical tasty cracker barrel food, the fireplace was nice this very cold day. The server was nice but sloppy, never poor a drink standing over someone, do it over the table! Remember who ordered what! Worst of all, the bathroom was absolutely filthy. I felt dirty after leaving the bathroom..

“Fanatastic but caloric”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

Great place to take kids for breakfast. Pancakes are unreal and the kids can play wit all the toys in the gift shop while you wait for food. However just look at all the droves of wide wasted Americans eating butter by the gallon, i seriously think they scoop butter with ice cream scooper. Tastes great but don't go here too often or you will not live long. The sunrise sampler is also killer.

“Hey...why not?”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

You know exactly what you are getting (consistency counts) and they have things that are difficult to find in our area, like chicken fried steak (not my favorite, but my mom loves it). The staff is well-trained to be very friendly and helpful and they are. Servers check back frequently and often bring a treat for the table (biscuits, a serving of a side dish to try, etc.) The food is as expected and served quickly. Strangely enough, they make a pretty good Ruben here and I stop now and then to get it. Perfect for a meal when you're feeling homesick or especially if you're on the road and looking for something more than quick food by the roadside. The store can be a fun diversion and there should be something for everyone on the menu. It's just as advertised and delivers what's promised. What more can you ask?
