Cracker Barrel is a good place to get down-home comfort food. At this Cracker Barrel, we have always gotten good service and good food.

We have spent a good 45 minutes waiting on corn bread and it never came out. We were very disappointed, especially considering that the manager was "sorry" but didn't care enough to resolve the problem.

Restaurant was not crowded but was excessively noisy. We were given plastic utensils wrapped in plastic rather than silverware. Waitress served food without utensils (we had to ask for utensils), hamburger without ketchup, etc. Bathroom was not clean. Very disappointed.

I would come back just to talk to our waitress Cora, she was a GEM! Honestly, cracker barrel is cracker barrel - consistent. This waitress is my heart and soul and would visit just to see her! I would hire her in a heart beat.

The food was good, we were allowed to seat even though our full party wasn't there. And I was happy with my server. She is amazing and full of spunk.

I have been to at least 20 different locations across the country for one reason - I am not a huge breakfast eater and hubby is. We both know what we like and CB usually fits the bill. Also, we travel a lot through the...More
