My aunt and I had dinner here after she picked me up at the airport. I had the fried catfish, baked potato, and skim milk. This was followed by the double chocolate Coca Cola Fudge Cake, which was served with vanilla ice cream. Auntie had...the grilled catfish and two sides. I also had corn. Kinzie was a friendly and helpful waitress. I just wished I'd told her from the start that I didn't want the loaded baked potato. I may return if I'm in the area again.More

We needed lunch and saw the Cracker Barrel sign so we stopped. We enjoyed our visit. The food was prepared as we expected and the staff were friendly.

Enjoyed a delicious meat loaf dinner after 10 hours traveling on the interstate. Quiet comfort meal in a tranquil setting right next to the hotel.

We had a little wait, but then a tour bus dropped off senior citizens. Very friendly place with great food.

You could almost slide across the floors they were so greasy. The food was overly salty! The waiter was excellent but otherwise this was a disappointment. Won’t be back.

We met an old friend here and it provided a nice place for a long conversation. We miss being able to get an omelette because the scrambled eggs were blah. The sausage patties they served our friend were more like charcoal patties. They did bring...out an acceptable set after he complained. I had their sampler with copious servings for chicken and dumplings, meat loaf and country ham along with fried okra, spinach and fried apples, which was the best meal out of the three and the only reason I gave four rating. The grits, gravy and biscuits were all as expected at a Cracker Barrel. We tried to see their menu online and could not find it.More

Arrived at this location around 7:45 pm. We were sat and then proceeded to sit their for the next ten minutes are so. In the meantime, two other tables are sat in the same area as us. Their servers come right to the tables just...sat and start taking care of them. Mt wife walks to the hostess stand and let's the hostess know our server has yet to come to our table. The hostess stated let me go check. After a couple more minutes, she didn't come back out and mo server. The other tables had drinks at this point. During the time we sat at our table with no drinks just menus other servers walked by us, the bus person Numerous times and even the manager. Not in person thought to ask us had we been helped or if we needed help etc. My wife and I decided to leave and go somewhere that we could get waited on. My wife asked the cashier to speak to the manager. The cashier contacted the hostess on their radio and the hostess told the cashier she had no idea what we needed even though she was the one we asked who our server was. A manager finally came out and instead of coming to speak to us he stopped to speak to the hostess. My wife walked over to him and explained the problem. This manager looked like he just got out of bed, he was very uninterested by his demeanor. He then said well I walked by you and thought you had been taken care. I'm not sure how this happens with no drinks on our table. The manager never stopped to ask us to make sure we were taken care of. He never apologized, never asked how he could get us to stay or anything else. We left and took our business elsewhere. No apology, zero care and zero customer service.More

Cracker Barrel has become tired. The menu changed and it just isn’t the same. The service and food was okay here, but smaller portions and just wasn’t as good and the prices are up.

This was close to our hotel and our youngest really loves Cracker Barrel. The server was friendly and our food was hot and tasted good. Prices have gone up a bit at Cracker Barrel, but it seems like they've gone up everywhere. Our server forgot...a couple of things but got them out to us quickly when reminded. And, the cornbread and biscuit service amounts were unusually small.More

No longer offering Haddock or Liver. Blamed it on COVID-19???? The hash brown casserole was changed as well, it was like mashed potatoes. Very disappointed in the menu changes, Haddock and hash brown casserole were my 2 favorites. Will probably not be going back 🙁

Constantly run out of selections on menu. Specials every day - they run out early and you have to wait 30 min to an hour or order something else. Took away the haddock- fav selection. Bad news - not what it used to be.
