Friday night visit. Haven’t been to a Cracker Barrel several years. Brother wanted to try. Friday night dinner. Waited 30 minutes for a table. 20 minutes for server to take our order. 45 minutes for food to arrive. Sister in law said Friday Fish special...was great. Brother had the Cracker Barrel special, he said meatloaf was great, ham too salty to actually eat, dumplings were good, sides good. Chicken fried steak fried so hard impossible to eat served with tasteless gravy. Coleslaw and biscuit were good. Husband had the Sunday fried chicken. Again, fried so hard almost impossible to eat. So, not a great impression as far as food goes and definitely a too long wait. We realize every business is short staffed but it looked like Cracker Barrel had all their dining areas open, seating in all areas of the restaurant, with not enough staff to take care of number of customers. Maybe don’t fill all the tables when you don’t have enough servers?More

I can happily say that this restaurant met the usual standards of Cracker Barrel franchise with friendly prompt service and good food. I would definitely eat there again.

I love the meatloaf. The okra & green beans were a treat. I enjoyed cornbread but the biscuits were especially tasty. Our server was efficient & friendly., It's always fun to browse & shop in the attached cute country store!

Well,first point they should have never seated us if they didn't have enough people to wait on our table. 2nd point 30-35 minutes to get our first set of drinks which was 2 cokes and 2 Ice Teas. I waitressed for years when I was...younger...and always within the first 5 minutes get your guests their drinks...smh.. by then she took our drink order and food order together since we sat so long with nothing. 3rd point sat another 30 minutes waiting for food with no refills on drinks...4th food came out and missing a meal completely and then tell my husband sorry they were out that meal. little late to tell him by that point when that should been announced to him right away way before the meals got there to us. by then we were so stressed, we got the manager meals were comped and boxed up....I suggest another restaurant at this time or get take out.ruined our sons birthday dinner. won't be going back to that location in the future.More

We stopped at this restaurant on our way to South Carolina, we were fortunate enough to be able to stay overnight in their parking lot. We had both dinner and breakfast at this location and found both meals up to the standards set by this...chain, employees we came in contact with were pleasant and extremely helpful.

Arrived via tour bus. Later for our arrival time. Staff was excellent at seating us as quickly as possible. Inability to handle large crowd was evident. Staff shortage. Wine overpriced. $16 for 6 oz??? Seriously. Meals had been prepared in advanced. Broccoli was cold. Hash...brown casserole cold and dried out. Trout was delicious. Very long delay getting our tab. Tour bus almost left us behind. DisappointingMore

The chicken pot pie didn't taste good so when I told the waitress , she apologized and took it off my bill .Normally the pot pie is awesome so might have been an off night.

A very average cracker barrel resteraunt. The lady that checked me out was rude, and kept trying to give me another man's order. Even asked me if I was sure I didn't ordered my own food under another man's name.

I got the sampler, and my wife got breakfast fare including a sirloin steak. The steak was surprisingly good, and cooked to order. They completely missed serving one of my sides however, and offered no credit on my bill. I believe you should get what...you've paid for but this is apparently not this Cracker Barrel's policy.More

Due to COVID 19 we had to order our food and take it to the hotel next door. Most Cracker Barrels have their entrances on the right but this one was on the left, almost like a mirror image. But the breakfast didn't disappoint. My...mommas pancake breakfast was very good as was the wife's has brown casserole.More

We ate here twice while in town. I will say both times we had amazing service and food. The first time we had Danielle serve us. She was incredibly on top of her game. WOW! I was incredibly impressed with her. The second time we...came we had a huge group and Roxanne waited on us. She was also incredibly professional, quick and efficient. I will be back!More

This was nearly an average visit to a Cracker Barrel restaurant with the exception of Covid-19 mandates. Service 5/5: The waitresses were excellent! They were very observant to our tables, food and beverage refills. The made our dining experience enjoyable and pleasantly carried on a...conversation. Food 5/5: The food was homemade and portion sizes were very reasonable. The food was made of fresh ingredients and served hot. A daily special item was listed on their menu. Cleanliness of Restaurant 5/5: The restaurant was clean and presentable. Tables were quickly cleared off and cleaned for the next guests. Cluttered 3/5: The gift shop in which you enter and exit the restaurant was quite cluttered and difficulty to maneuver isles when other people were in them. Food Prices 4/5: Food prices appear to be increasing and not as good of value as Cracker Barrel previously was. Covid-19 Policies 3/5: 1st: You were met by a host at the door taking the number of visitors in your party and estimating wait times, which were thankfully under the estimated 45-minutes. 2nd: Larger and extended families were split by two or three tables to meet social distancing guidelines; even when family members came together. Guests were scattered around the dining area to promote social distancing guidelines. Bottom Line: I would consider returning to this Cracker Barrel location if traveling through this area again in the future.More
