In the history of me writing trip advisor reviews, this location Cracker Barrel has received my second one star review; and it is much deserved. Actually, a zero star is really deserved since they completely wasted my time and made me feel completely invaluable. Our server had zero customer service, and sadly management wasn't much better. Though we were friendly... More

We had a group of eight and had to wait a bit but it was worth it. The food and service were some of the best seen at this chain in a while. There were several managers directing the operation and it was very efficient.

We arrive for lunch. Greeted outside on the porch by a nice young man and seated in 12 minutes. So far so good. Waitress arrived after a wait and we ordered drinks and lunch. Here's where things turn not so good. We waited 20 minutes before waitress returned to apologize for forgetting and another 10 minutes before drinks arrived. Then... More

If you like "real" breakfast, with eggs, bacon, sausage, and/or pancakes, Cracker Barrel is a great place to get it. Our experience at this one was good. Unfortunately (depending on your point of view), their tactic of having you walk in and out through a gift shop worked on us; I found a hat I had to have.

While staying at a nearby motel we opted to walk next door to the Cracker Barrel. A disappointment to be sure. My hash brown casserole was over cooked and dried out. My husband's chicken livers were also over cooked. Server was very friendly and efficient.

I have had many wonderful meals at Cracker Barrels...I love their gift shop with comfy beautiful clothes for ladies, gorgeous seasonal items with which to decorate your home, and old fashioned treats. This gift shop is great. What I do wish at this Cracker Barrel is that they could greet me in a timely fashion as most Cracker Barrels do... More

After spending a entire day at USC for a softball camp, my girls were tired and very hungry. Drobe back to the hotel in hopes of making it in time before they closed. Fast food was the last option. They closed at 11 and we pulled im to the parking lot at 10:45. My wife went in to see if... More

The worst run Cracker Barrel I have ever been to in my life. I believe they don't like white people there because we sat there for 15 minutes with not even an acknowledgment the manager even walked up to our table so we had nothing but menus turned his head and walked away. I guess they didn't like my white... More

Arrived near here after driving in the remnants of a tropical storm. Smiles greeted us and good food followed. A nice way to relax and end a long day. Will come again.

Love this place! I had been here many years ago but my wife and kids had never been. My girls got the pancakes and they were amazing, my other daughter got the fired chicken tenders, again so good! I got the chicken fried chicken, you can get it with sides of mash and corn, you get the biscuits of course!... More
