Our server was Lauren. She treated us very well and our meal and service was very good! The lack of customer service by Theresa at the register overshadowed our visit. Theresa treated everyone poorly so at least she was consistent. I won't be stopping at...More

Restaurant was not crowded but was excessively noisy. We were given plastic utensils wrapped in plastic rather than silverware. Waitress served food without utensils (we had to ask for utensils), hamburger without ketchup, etc. Bathroom was not clean. Very disappointed.

Cracker Barrel really struggled today. A group of us showed up about 10:00 a.m. for a birthday brunch for a 6 year old. You could see that the staff was struggling. Not enough cashiers to take care of customers that wanted to pay. Seems the...More
