Food sort of ok but very, very ordinary. Very hard to order anything not explicitly spelled out on menu.

Good home cooked food. Chicken & Pastry really good along with their famous hot biscuits. Breakfast food all day long.

We visited during Christmas time and were able to complete the shopping for 2 childern that were on our list. They had items that we couldn't find anywhere else except catalogs. They are more expensive but it beats waiting. The food is good and most of the time the wait is short. The staff is great and very friendly.

I went with a group of 17 women. CB really isn't set up to handle large groups and does not take 'reservations' They were reluctant to seat our group until all had arrived, but when the group increased to 8 including two using walkers, they did seat us. More than half the group had the Wednesday special, chicken pot pie... More

Love the meatloaf, fried apples, and mashed potatoes. Always consistent in the quality and quantity. Great place to eat if you're traveling.

This was my first experience at Cracker Barrel. Food was great and our waitress was a bit slow but very friendly. I feel the delay was caused by the kitchen. We had to wait appx. 30 minutes to be sated (party of 8)

Cracker Barrels are almost universally good, at least south of the Mason-Dixon Line, that to say this one was excellent is kind of redundant. The only one I had any complaint with was one in New Jersey (surprise, surprise!) and that only because the service was terrible. That aside, I could say virtually the same thing about every CB I've... More
