Stopped here before heading out for a flight to Florida. Was a great experience because they served us quickly and the food was great. We all ordered big meals and we had no complaints whatsoever. Great Job Guys.

Although they weren't very busy, it took a long time to get our meals. That wasn't a problem because we were in no hurry; however, I expect my food to arrive at the table hot. My chicken was obviously heated in the microwave (the breading was tough and the chicken rubbery), so I sent it back. The replacement was only... More

All Cracker Barrel restaurants have Americana on the walls; this one has some really great, museum-quality farming tools and implements hanging from the ceiling of the gift shop.

The food is average and the menu has been the same for years. Every now and then the have specials. Service is usually good and the gift shop is an attraction. Always close to the interstate for travelers convenience.
