We eat at Cracker Barrel two or three times a month, and we've always had very good service and very good food there, no matter what location we eat at. I do love the turnip greens side dish, and appreciate the consistency in it and in the other sides. I always order the onion rings with ranch dressing on the... More

We arrived before the rush, however, food was a long time coming! Delivered the order- things missing! Pancakes were cold by the time the syrup was brought to us! Neither waiter or hostess offered coffee refill(s)! Home fries NOT- they were steak fries! Service nor food was sadly lacking!

I walked in about 8:30 on last Wednesday night after a long day of driving expecting to be greeted and seated fairly quickly as it was past the usual dinner hour.

This Cracker Barrel was just like all the other Cracker Barrels I've been to around the US and sometimes, that's just what you need. Something familiar and consistent.

This restaurant does not serve anything but average food. The portions are good but the food is not that good. The service is very nice and efficient. Would not bother to go to this restaurant again since you primarily are there for the food!

Service was good. Food was what you'd expect, comfortable. I had the country fried steak, which was pretty good.

We stopped here after hours of driving. We were served a delicious meal with excellent service. They even gave us a free coffee to go!
