Wife and I went for breakfast during mid week. Even though the place was crowded we did not have to wait for a table. Our server took our orders and we did not wait long for our food. Everything was good and I always order the pancakes, which I think they make better than anyone. Cracker Barrel is consistently good... More

The staff are not very professional. The last time I was in there, two of the staff which appeared to be management stood in the kitchen doorway.

Country cooking. Polite, efficient staff who kept the coffee coming! General Store is great for purchasing their food brands, as well as gorgeous women/children clothing. Discount prices are always a nice addition. Big rocking chairs on the porch, in case there is a wait to be seated.

This restaurant is pretty close to home cooked meals as your going to get and they don't allow you in the kitchen. The staff is very friendly. The pricing is reasonable and you won't leave hungry. They also have a very large gift shop a ton of stuff in it,something for everyone.

I love this place, and so do my kids. The wait staff is busy, but kind and helpful. The food is always good, and everyone loves the general store.

Something was off when we were there. It was not real crowded but it too awhile to get our order placed and receive our food. The biscuits were dry and burned on the edges. The temperature of the food could have been warmer too. This meal was not up to Cracker Barrel standards in my opinion
