A boatload of us arrived after watching our kids' (grandkids') music camp concert. The place was extremely busy but we were served quickly and efficiently. Getting in can be tricky but it's worth the effort.

Very good food, typical Cracker Barrel which is why people go there. Our server didn't ask to refill our drinks or come back to the table until our meal was finished. It would have been 5 stars if refills happened.

The food at Cracker Barrel is well priced. The portions are generous and the price is inexpensive. The customer service at the location was friendly and professional. The side salad was fresh but small and the ranch dressing was good. There is all manner of...More

It's hard to find American dishes served in a more traditional atmosphere. We thought the food was well prepared and served with large portions (plenty to take home if you want). This being out first time at Cracker Barrel, we were pleasantly surprised by the...More
