If you're travelling on the I-87 and looking for a decent option, you should stop at this Cracker Barrell. Honestly, they all look and taste the same, but the variety in the menu will please almost everyone. There are limited healthy options, but if you want to go on the safe side, go with the breakfast. The lunch options are... More

Always enjoy this almost national chain. Service is incredibly friendly and helpful. Often have chicken and dumplings (think it's the special on Thursdays), love the unending biscuits and corn muffins as well as the unending raspberty lemonade (frosty pitcher). Other times, I make a wonderful vegan veggies plate (wait staff will tell you which are vegan). The front has clothes,... More

Had breakfast at this Cracker Barrel, from which I expected good things, since I've gone to and favorably rated another Cracker Barrel in a nearby town. Pretty disappointing; the coffee was not great, knives were dirty, the serving of scrambled eggs was tiny, and the sourdough toast tasted sweet, and not in a good way. I have had a lot... More

My servers are very nice and attentive. The managers always come by everyones table to ask how is everything. If you go on a regular basis you are greeted by your first name.

I took my 5 year old here for breakfast on a weekday morning. The food offering was as it usually was, hot and tasting great. The service was a little slow at first, but definitely improved quickly. Unfortunately, the mandatory trip through the gift shop area to enter and exit the restaurant is way too much for a 5 year... More

My sister who was visiting from Texas wanted to go here for lunch with 2 other family members. Our waitress, Carm, was friendly, polite and very nice. I had chicken noodle soup that was hearty and a chicken salad sandwich. I was pleasantly surprised that the sandwich was not loaded with mayonnaise. It tasted fresh, maybe just a tad bland,... More

On our way home we got off exit 9, we were going to search the GPS for restaurants and Cracker Barrel was right there. I haven't been to one in years and my wife had never been so we thought let's give it a try. My wife was amazed by the "gift shop" we had to walk through to get... More

We came in on New Year's Eve and we had an excellent meal. Everything was so tasty and our waiter, Thomas, was so great. Would definitely recommend!

Lunch was hot and quick-quite tasty. The server was very polite and attentive. The location has ample parking and easy access from the highway. The gift shop has a large variety of quirky items- lots of fun to browse.

Friendly staff. Darlene was my waitress. I did not have to wait as it was a Wednesday and not a weekend. Good food. Would definitely return.
