As a recently diagnosed diabetic, I was surprised that the the online nutrition menu listed the carb content of ONLY the items in "low fat" menu. Only a few a la carte items listed carb content. They don't even offer a butter substitute. Not do they serve omlettes. All breakfasts are loaded with diabetic unfriendly carbs. As much as my... More

We went here because it was close to our hotel. It was pretty cold that night and they have a nice fireplace. We enjoy the triangle peg game while we wait for our food. It wasn't crowded and we were seated promptly. My husband will always have the breakfast, no matter what time it is. I had the chicken fried... More

Typical Cracker Barrel menu and cleanliness. This location seems to handle big crowds better than most. The wait staff and kitchen seem efficiently run. The wait staff are all friendly and attentive.

Just what you would expect at a Cracker Barrel. Service is slow food is good. Restrooms are dirty but the parking lot is large enough to park a trailer in.

Consistently good food. Portions are big. Service staff is excellent and attentive. The floor could be cleaner, but everything else is very clean. Not only great breakfasts,great dinners, too.

Walked in having never eaten here and was met with a gift shop full of people and an array of items one might find for far less at Wal-Mart. Made our way through and were finally able to leave our name on the list. Took 15 minutes to get a table which led me to believe perhaps they have good... More

Took forever to initially order, food came and appeared as though it sat under warmer for a while prior to being served...drink refills took forever as well. Overall, service was terrible....decorating the restaurant for Christmas could've waited until there were no customers!

I love Cracker Barrel but don't have one in our area. When we travel we always try and find one so I can get my dumpling fix. So my mixed feelings are this... I loved the dumplings as always. Our service was decent. One thing I noticed and it was not hard to miss was a overbearing manager. He hung... More

Before I rated this restaurant very highly but not now...I had fried chicken livers, turnip greens and fried okra with cornbread.It was so smoky in there that I will have to have my coat dry cleaned. Our server was very friendly and had 3 stars but left my husband's Iced tea glass empty for 20 minutes. My chicken livers were... More
