I received a couple of gift certificates for Cracker Barrel and decided to use them while my wife was out of town. I enjoy home cooking / country food a lot more that she does. I was pleasantly surprised with the variety of choices and the light lunch was very good. Adequate parking and located right off the interstate for... More

What can I say? Cracker Barrel breakfasts are good regardless of location! The food is consistently delicious and the price is right for our pockets! As far as the service we have rarely had a less than pleasant experience. And, of course, much to my husband dismay there is always something I find that needs to go home with me!

Cracker Barrel restaurants are always a delight. The food is wonderful and is served very fast. The waitress that we had helping us was extremely polite and helpful. We had 11 people in our party and she took care of us with style and grace. I don't know her name but she needs a pat on the back. We were... More

The service is good, but the food doesn't always live up to expectations. Often times they run out of food or orders are incorrect multiple times. It's an okay restaurant with okay service. Mostly clean but isn't as well-kept as it could be.

I've never seen a Cracker Barrel as busy as this one. There was a 20 minute wait to be seated at 11:25 on a Sunday morning. Once we were seated, the service was quick, especially considering that they were packed to the gills. We had an older lady named Faye as our waitress. She was good at her job and... More

Always reliable, decent and clean place to eat and shop. No matter where you are in the country, you can depend on Cracker Barrel for a good cup of coffee and a good breakfast. Most of the food is ok, but the breakfast is the best, hash brown casserole, is fantastic. Prices are good, unless you buy things a la... More

We have tried this on several occasions and each time the food was just awful and the service is just as bad. Good is always greasy and tasteless. Don't waste ur money.

Once again, we were out and about and decided to use the gift certificate given to us this past holiday...why did we wait so long? We enjoyed our time. The hostess helped in securing a table to meet our needs. Prinn was an awesome server. The kids loved him and his dessert recommendation...so big the kids could not finish it.... More

Ate here Saturday night ---not very good. Long wait for very average food! Cheese grits were terrible--obviously instant grits with a strange taste, very watery with some shredded cheese on top-UGH. Breading on my wife's chicken was too thick and had a taste of flour. May not eat here again.
