Lunch with my son on my birthday. Got right in and service was very good. Since they have breakfast all day he got that and I got the special. We were both pleased with our selections.

Yes, I find this cracker barrel consistently good. The service by our four star server was definitely a five star experience. The egg beater, Turkey sausage, and biscuits were only exceeded by the graveyard and Apple butter. The grits are not Charleston south Carolina good, a bit runny.

Being familiar with Cracker Barrel, we came here since it was close to our hotel. Service was terrible. After being seated, 5 other tables came in after us and were served right away. We didn't even get asked for our drink order. We were just about to walk out when the server came by and said she forgot to put... More

When we travel we can always count on Cracker Barrel for great food, like grandma makes. We had the best chicken and dumplings along side their great biscuits and jelly. I love to shop while waiting on a table we scored great gifts to give to the grand kids we we came home.

Ate here on 10/07/16. Food & Service were excellent! We had the haddock & catfish meals with carrots, green beans, corn, okra & potato casserole. The fish were moist & flavorful. The vegetables were all fresh & properly cooked. The biscuits & cornbread were fresh & warm. The apple butter was delicious...not overly sweet. Service was excellent. Our server/Amber L... More

The Cracker Barrel in Russellville Arkansas is a typical Cracker Barrel, it has great food, it is well-kept and clean. The service is friendly and timely and the prices are reasonable. I love the gift shop. There is always something new and interesting to see. A great place to stop and visit.

Was next door to our hotel so we ate here several times during our stay. The kale salad, a seasonal offering, was delicious! It was topped with grilled chicken and pieces of real bacon. Also tried the pumpkin spice pancakes - yum!

I used to frequent this restaurant and have slowed down considerably. I usually always order pinto beans with my plate. I am willing to say it really depends on the time of day you get there whether they are fresh or not. Seems last ~10 times I've been they were cooked and recooked, thick and blah! Not sure that meets... More

Good ole Cracker Barrel. As usual, it was the same good food. Roast, fried okra, fried apples and sweet potato casserole. What can you say? It was Cracker Barrel. Always good. This one was no exception.

This is a typical Cracker Barrel restaurant. Reliable. Similar to any other. No surprises. Tremendous hot American breakfast selections from eggs to pancakes and more. Good size portions too. Also a variety of standard American dinner. Decent service. A nice shop out front to pick up the same mixes they use in their kitchen and "down home" souvenirs, hats, shirts,... More
