Visited while traveling back to MS. It's our sons favorite place to eat. He has Autism and had been in a horrible state that morning..meltdown and very sensory overload related. He had calmed down somewhat and we were all hungry so we stopped here. The waitress walked us past the fireplace, which was a huge mistake(he is afraid of fire)... More

My husband is always one to go to Cracker Barrel when we're on the road. Most of the time I would rather go elsewhere but this one was a nice surprise. We went on a Saturday night. We were promptly seated and had our drink orders taken. Our server took our order and the food was delivered quickly and hot... More

Ate here while waiting on relay to drive bus. Gravy and biscuits were okay. They changed the biscuits and they were not as flakey. The sausage was tasteless. They said it was smoked sausage. I thought it might have been turkey sausage but they said it was real pork. It just lacked a lot. Okay but just not what I... More

We had not eaten at a CB for a few years and decided to go for it. Both of us had fried chicken and biscuits. What can you say - it was good and filling. No issues. Good service

Great waitress. Food not up to CB standards. Cold and they had run out or of 4 of 5 items I tried to order. In the end ordered kiddie meal. Next night we went to grocery store and bought cheeses and crackers and a bottle of wine for supper. Not too keen to return to a CB after this experience..

This was next door to our hotel. The staff was very nice, seated quickly, food was hot and fresh. Will be staying at this exit again for sure when in town for TN Vol games!

As always great food at Cracker Barrel. Good service. Very busy but got our food fairly quick. Our waiter was very good and made sure he checked back to see if we needed anything. Gift shop was full of holiday displays. HAllowen, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. All tastefully done!

Good tasting breakfast. Portion size is small. There were only two of us, and we were seated at a table for 6 in the middle of the place. VERY noisy in here! We could not carry on a conversation. Waitress was confused and kept checking her note card for what came with menu items, maybe she was new - forgivable.... More
