There usually is a wait but if you're looking for a consistent and hardy meal then this is a good option.

I eat at Cracker Barrel on Independence Blvd. in Matthews on a regular basis and the food and service have been consistently good, so I was surprised at the disappointing service I received today. I called in a takeout order for lunch and ordered a vegetable plate with an iced tea partly because I knew that would take less time... More

It came fairly timely. My breakfast was correct. I ordered the... More

Visited this restaurant for lunch. Prices are pretty expensive for entrees, decided on a BLT. After the first bite realized the sandwich was dry and falling apart. Did they really make a sandwich and not include mayo?? Upon asking my waitress for some, she stated they were out. Really? How does that happen? In her defense she was a great... More

When entering, one finds a gift shop - filled with treats, souvenirs and clothing, etc - and, if there's a wait for a table, there is lots of rocking chairs just outside the door to lounge on while waiting. The food itself ... well, the portions are huge! (at least they are compared to where I'm from... for instance, 4... More

Stopped in for a quick dinner. They weren't very busy at the time so I was seated quickly. Server was great. One of the quickest meals I've ever received. Food was delicious as usual.
