We have been very dissatisfied with this restaurant in the past, from poor service to poor food and at times both. Recently there has been noticeable changes and it seems that things are getting better. The last several visits management has been visible and checking on the guests. I'm glad for the improvements.

We stopped for Sunday lunch and the fried chicken was delicious. One person in our group ordered pancakes and finally got the waitress' attention for more syrup. The pancakes were cold when she finally returned. She sort of disappeared after delivering the food and didn't return to check on drinks or to see how we were doing. We had eaten... More

Good service, good food, good value. But, as with all Cracker Barrels it would be better if you could have a glass of wine with your meal!

Located on the northwest outer road (exit I-55, go west, turn right at the first light). The usual Cracker Barrel, down home menu. Daily lunch specials. Everybody gets what they want.

What's worse than walking into a restaurant overrun with hoards of people from an event that the restaurant KNOWS happens this time every year???? When the manager did not staff accordingly!! And the hostess seats people she either knows or complained the loudest before others who were clearly there first?! Wrong. Then we asked someone to wipe our table as... More

Hadn't been in a CB for many years. Decided to stop for dinner with the grandkids, and was very pleasantly surprised. The service was excellent, we were seated at a table for 8 right away. Food came out on time and was very good. Between three adults and three kids, we had the chicken and dumplings, cheeseburger, fried shrimp, chicken... More

It was yummy and worth the wait. It was very busy but we had great service for the amount of people that were there.

My friend and I ate dinner here recently. The food was typical Cracker Barrel quality, but the service was lacking. We had to go in search of a server when we needed refills or other help.

There are seven of us here enjoying our dinner before we go ride the Polar Express train in Batesville Mississippi. The food was pretty fast for a large group: some ordering breakfast and some ordering dinner. I did not get a picture of the trout dinner cuz he ate it too fast. We love the trout at Cracker Barrel

We hve been to many Cracker Barrel restaurants throughout our travels, and this by far was the worst. Service very poor. Took 45 minutes for our food, after complaining about the long wait and threatening to walk out, our food finally arrived. Definitely not our servers fault. Saw 3 tables of customers walk out and many unhappy faces of people... More
