We visited on Mother's Day and had the Best Service and it didn't take long to get our food, as they were busy and we expected to have to wait awhile since it was very busy! But the Food Came out Perfect and It was very Clean!

We took a friend out for a business lunch here because it was close. But Cracker Barrel is always one of our favorites. So it was nice to have this one close by. There were no surprises--everything was homey and relaxing. The server was good and took care of all the things we asked for. The food was delicious. I was able to take home the extra biscuits and cornbread we had which is always my joy to do! I love them both. Everything was neat in the gift shop area with lots of pretty things to buy. The bathroom was clean. The people working very friendly and helpful. They held up to their reputation.

This restaurant while located along I-74 is a great place for locals as well as travelers. Their food is always good. They are an all around good family restaurant.

Had dinner there on a Friday evening. The pot roast was very fatty and the mashed potatoes were so hard I could stick my fork in and lift the entire serving up off of the plate.
Our server gave us our check minutes after we were served and never came back to check if we needed anything. We had to flag down someone just to get a refill on our water.

Meals are sometimes a bit skimpy, service is so so, not all waitresses are not good at refilling drinks unless you ask one that flies by your table. They are better at socializing with each other than the customers that are paying to eat there. We eat there at least 4-5 times a year ( not due to good service, but because food is not bad) Not like grandma cooks but sort of close to home cooked. They do season their greens well. & if you ask you can get extra gravy & potatoes & breads. You have to ask for jelly if you want that & extra syrup for pancakes. Prices mid range-high. 6 pm-8pm expect a good 45-60 min wait. If you go after 8 pm food has been there for a while & you get what ever is left over & really skimpy amounts. Best time is as soon as they open for fresh food.
