Ideal setting to meet with family. Choices on menu met everyone's expectations. Was not rushed and refills of drinks were welcomed. Food was prepared as ordered and was right temperature. Felt like we were at home sitting around the kitchen table.

I always love Cracker Barrel. You know what to expect. Just plain good old fashioned meals at a reasonable price. Something on the menu for everyone in your group. Also I love the gift shop with a variety of souvenirs. Quick service with friendly staff.
