This was next door to our hotel. The staff was very nice, seated quickly, food was hot and fresh. Will be staying at this exit again for sure when in town for TN Vol games!

As always great food at Cracker Barrel. Good service. Very busy but got our food fairly quick. Our waiter was very good and made sure he checked back to see if we needed anything. Gift shop was full of holiday displays. HAllowen, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. All tastefully done!

Good tasting breakfast. Portion size is small. There were only two of us, and we were seated at a table for 6 in the middle of the place. VERY noisy in here! We could not carry on a conversation. Waitress was confused and kept checking her note card for what came with menu items, maybe she was new - forgivable.... More

Cold potato casserole that tasted like it had sat all day, mashed potatoes with no taste. Fried shrimp was fine and roast beef tasty. Biscuits good as always and carrots were great. Service was a bit slow but friendly. Probably would not stop here again.

We had dinner one night while here and usually get breakfast, even at dinner time, but we both were tempted by the chicken and dumplings and were not disappointed. Love their new Blueberry ice tea.

We stopped in the middle of a long drive home, expecting the usual great food and quick service we've come to enjoy at Cracker Barrels everywhere. This time though, things were a little lacking. Our server was slow and generally glum. The place was very empty yet it took quite a while for her to show up to get our... More

What a fun country-style restaurant! Made even better by their fantastic wait staff. The food was stick to your ribs yummy. Try the chicken fried chicken (ask for extra saw mill gravy) with a double side of their hash brown casserole and fried apples. Worth every calorie! Best of all, your wallet will thank you.

Cracker Barrel is dependable in that they have a good variety on the menu, great breakfasts, which are served all day and the gift shops have some unique items.
