The food and service were very good, however, the price was higher, even with all of us ordering waters. It's a nice place to stop and be able both eat and walk around, though.

Kadee was an excellent efficient waitress. Got our drinks right away and made sure our glasses were never empty. Food was fresh and tasted great. I also like how the manager went around and made sure everything was okay.

Food and service very typical of most Cracker Barrels. Good, but not special. Food came out pretty quickly. My suggestion, order the daily special.

This chain is one of my favorite places to eat breakfast. Hashbrown Casserole was half cold. The coffee tasted funny, maybe it was the water. Great friendly service. The rest of the meal was great.

Stopped there with the family on our way to Memphis. The food was fast, hot, and good. They messed my sons order up. The waitress was great. Root beer was very good. It does beat going to McDonald's next door that's all I can say.

Typical Cracker Barrel, food of decent quality, service acceptable, but like most Cracker Barrels it is in need of noise suppression. This was especially true with 2 charter bus loads of folks that were very busy talking to the point where you could hardly hear...More
