Cracker Barrel is always good and this one is perfect because it is next to the hotel I was staying in. Cracker Barrel is always clean and the service was perfect.

We enjoy dining at Cracker Barrel restaurants across the southeast. This location was disappointing. Food was cold and overcooked. Service just okay. Requested eggs be recooked. Still came over cooked and dry.
