1st they received a 90 for health score. We discussed walking out. The food is what you expect. Seems like the dinners are getting smaller. The dumplings were very runny. We did have a great waitress that made visit decent.

We got caught in a major thunderstorm & were thrilled to find a Cracker Barrel where we could take refuge. We had a server who asked us every 5 minutes if we needed anything - but he forgot about the extra butter we asked for & was no where to be seen when we were ready for our check. He... More

We have eaten in a lot of Cracker Barrel restaurants when we travel. This has to be our worst experience. Service was poor, cold food, incorrect order and had to go ask for more drinks. Won't be stopping there again.

Decent food; lousy atmosphere. If you like unruly and screaming children you're in luck and this is the place for you. If not, order your food to-go and take it back to your hotel room so you can eat in peace and quiet.

Ordered the Rib Eye medium, well it came back crisp on both sides and very well done. If the place hadn't been so crowded and the rest of my table having to wait on me, I would've sent it back. Just took the knife and cut the top and bottom off. Everything else up to the regular CB standards. Our... More

We eat here often because we work close to this location. The food is always great and the staff is also friendly. Love to look around in the country store and shop for presents. Worth checking out this place
