I’d avoided Cracker barrel for years- I try to eat healthy and their menu always seemed to be loaded with food that was fried, overcooked or swimming in butter- but since we were checked into a hotel nearby and I didn’t really want to get back in the car again I decided to check their menu on-line.

In a group of 20 ladies and our waitress was able to serve us and kept our orders correct. Food was hot and delicious. Good place to stop for large groups.

Same complaint as with the one in Morristown, TN; skimpy portions. Decided to pass other Cracker Barrels by. Too bad.

Cracker Barrel is always a good place to eat when visiting with a large family. Easy access for older people.
