The Cracker Barrel is always consistent , food is good and of course we love the shopping . It is always a clean restaurant . We do like to travel to this restaurant when we have our fifth wheel trailer as most Cracker barrels have RV parking but it is annoying when cars park in these spaces despite there being... More

I absolutely love Cracker Barrel! The waiters are always very hospitable and the food has never been poor. I also love being able to walk through the little gift shop and feel like I'm set in the middle of American culture.

It doesn't seem as good as other Cracker Barrel's we've been to. The service was good, but the food was not hot when it arrived. I would describe it was a little warmer than luke warm. As we were in a hurry, we didn't bother to send it back. Sorry Cracker Barrel, not one of your better restaurants.

We went with our youth group and didn't have to wait long for our party of ten to get a table. I had the child size portion of mac 'n cheese and green beans and the portion was perfect for me. I paid only $4.74 for my meal. Servers were attentive and nice and we didn't have to wait long... More

A little hard to find out behind a hotel, but service was great, seated very quickly and the food was wonderful. It was a saturday and very crazy there, a bus had just left but it did not slow the staff down.

Food was all pre-made garbage that tasted like a frozen dinner. No thank you. Only positive was the store was fun to walk around while waiting.

I went to Cracker Barrel last with with a group of ten. I had made the mistake of eating a late breakfast so wasn't looking for a big meal. One thing I have to say, when you go to out to eat, you should be hungry. I didn't see a small meal mea, although I probably could have ordered off... More

I love eating at Cracker Barrel when we travel. We know we'll get a good/great meal at a decent price and I love the shop! We can get some old time candy that you may not find elsewhere.

We visit this Cracker Barrel whenever we are in the area, mainly to shop in the gift shop and have the apple dumpling. Service has always been friendly and good.
