Food and service at the Bell Creek Road Cracker Barrel is always reliably good, as it is in every Cracker Barrel. That is why diners sometimes experience a short wait for a table at peak dining hours. Not a bad thing for women like myself who enjoy a few minutes to look over the attractive and appealing merchandise for sale in their shop.

If you want good food that has not been setting, then you need to go early in the day and not in the evening. Service was good, food was horrible, ended up not eating and luckily the manager did not make us pay. Will only go again if we go in the morning or lunch.

You don't eat at a Cracker Barrel expecting fine dining, but ok dining is expected. Waitress brought me the wrong beverage, my dining companion ordered steak "with as much pink as you can do", and the waitress replied, so you want to well done then? We should have known then. We waited 20 minutes for Salads which came out 2 minutes before entrees, that the side dishes were cold on. All and all not the best experience. On a positive note, the bathrooms were clean.

Our large party of 10 was promptly seated and service provided by two very enthusiastic young women. Five of us were familiar with the menu, the other five not, so they were very helpful with describing the choices to us. The coffee here is EXCELLENT! And the fact that they give you REAL maple syrup in individual bottles was a plus as we had an extra and took it with us to enjoy at our vacation home!
