I had the meatloaf dinner with a sweet potato, greens and pintos. The sweet potato was served with brown sugar and cinnamon, plus butter. I sent the pintos back because of a sour taste. The lady at the next table had just done the same thing. The potato was just barely done. The greens and cornbread muffins were good, as... More

I grabbed a quick lunch of their chicken pot pie which was prime comfort food. Service was very attentive and the ladies behind the giftshop counter friendly and helpful. A great visit.

Every chance we get, we eat at a Cracker Barrel when travelling the United States. The daily meal deal is delicious and well worth the price and the portion sizes are generous.

Never did like how Cracker Barrel forces you to walk through a very crowded gift store before entering or leaving the restaurant, but I digress. The wonderful location close to I-64 makes it a mecca for travelers and tour buses alike. If you're in a hurry, you might want to avoid this one. Service and food was adequate, our only... More

Can always find a good choice on the menu. Usually a short wait but lots of items to explore for shopping while waiting. Friendly and quick service. Would recommend to travelers.

Typical Cracker Barrel - good reliable food, excellent friendly staff, and fun to shop. This place gets VERY busy due to all the tourist stuff in the area and there are 4 hotels within walking distance. Be prepared to wait if you eat at a prime eating time.

I met a friend whom I hadn't seen for years here for breakfast & the place was very busy so had to wait maybe 10 minutes. We ordered our meal & everything came as ordered etc. We were never asked if we wanted more ice tea & then the waiter took our glasses off the table as we were sitting... More

We had a rising star as a waitress. She was very nice but obviously new. Food was good especially since close to closing.

This is a family style restaurant (no bar, kid friendly) with a moderately priced menu. Items tend to be "southern cooking" and breakfast is available all day. The trout was excellent and the biscuits and gravy were very good. The servings were generous. The restaurant also has a large shop with many old fashioned, interesting items.
