This is the typical Cracker Barrel. Our server was great but hampered by a new cook who was VERY slow. I would visit again and hope the cook had picked up speed.

It can take a while to get a table but the food is good and prices moderate. Lots of choices for homemade type selections, mash potatoes and gravy, meat loaf etc. The breakfast is the best part. Biscuits and gravy is always good. Something for everyone at this place. Sometimes the food can be off and not to good depending... More

We were there almost an hour before our food arrived, my pancakes being burnt and my husband's steak being severely overcooked. Our waitress many times made eye contact with us as we needed her attention at our table, and she purposely ignored us and walked away.. When we finally were able to get her at our table, she said "I... More

I enjoyed the meatloaf and potatoes. Nice to get a great meal. Mac and cheese was so good I ordered a second portion and skipped dessert. Probably because the sweet tea covered the sugar needs of dinner. Overall, good experience.

Sunday morning breakfast at Cracker Barrel is always a crap shoot, but this time the service was abominable. Two different servers took our order after a ten minute wait. Coffee took another five minutes. The orders were completely wrong, hash brown casserole instead of plain hash browns, no toast and a serving of biscuits and gravy that was not ordered.... More

As I sit here without food.....so here it is. I ordered the veggie plate. My side salad had a straw wrapper at the bottom. Totally looked like a piece of lettuce. But it caught my attention because it was a little too light. Yeah, unravel and it's straw paper. Then they ask if I would like something to replace that.... More

Not a long wait to be seated Cord Bread and Biscuits were good. (But they were out of Blackberry Jelly) Floors could have been better swept and cleaner. Friendly server. Meal was ok. Cheese grits were not that special. Sweet potato was really good. Shrimp and fish were great. Typical Cracker Barrel.
