I've been to many Cracker Barrels, and this is a good one. This was my second trip to this location, and my lunch was delicious: the chicken and dumplings. But be warned -- if you eat those chicken and dumplings, they'll put you right to sleep. Not the kind of meal to eat if you're on the road, but if... More

Not much to say about Cracker Barrel except that it is consistently good food. This location is tucked away and takes a little work to find.

We stopped for a late dinner on our travels. We had to wait about 10 minutes even though we were there later and there were several tables open. Our waitress was attentive. We did have to ask for ketchup twice though. We have yet to order something that we don't like (except my son is not fond of their macaroni... More

It always seems to be a Cracker Barrel around when you are looking for a home style cooked meal. Good place to stop at for supper when you are traveling. The country style atmosphere and its old signs and items hanging up is always a conversation starter with "I had or used that" or "I remember that".

We eat at Cracker Barrel two or three times a month, and we've always had very good service and very good food there, no matter what location we eat at. I do love the turnip greens side dish, and appreciate the consistency in it and in the other sides. I always order the onion rings with ranch dressing on the... More

We arrived before the rush, however, food was a long time coming! Delivered the order- things missing! Pancakes were cold by the time the syrup was brought to us! Neither waiter or hostess offered coffee refill(s)! Home fries NOT- they were steak fries! Service nor food was sadly lacking!

I walked in about 8:30 on last Wednesday night after a long day of driving expecting to be greeted and seated fairly quickly as it was past the usual dinner hour. To my surprise I stood waiting to be seated for about five minutes as no one was behind the desk to greet customers. When I was finally seated, I... More

You can't go wrong with Cracker Barrel when you are on the road and this was no exception. I love that you can have breakfast any time of day. This time I tried the fried apples and they are just delicious. They also have now blackberry ice tea which is a syrup that you have to stir in and is... More

This Cracker Barrel was just like all the other Cracker Barrels I've been to around the US and sometimes, that's just what you need. Something familiar and consistent.

This restaurant does not serve anything but average food. The portions are good but the food is not that good. The service is very nice and efficient. Would not bother to go to this restaurant again since you primarily are there for the food!

Thank VAChuck
