Called in a to go order today at 4:10 pm. Told it would be ready in 20 minutes. Arrived at the CB at 4:30. Immediately paid for the order. The restaurant was not very busy as There was no line and I could see over 10 empty tables. Waited for 30 minutes for order. Asked to speak to a manager... More

The restaurant has a very friendly staff. The food was just okay, although I really enjoyed my eggs in a basket.

We enjoy the atmosphere of this restaurant chain & the consistency of the quality of the food. Our only complaint was about the service which was very slow. The food we ordered was prepared very good & was delicious. We would return to this location.

An old saying: "if you want to starve someone, assign two people to serve them". We were seated by one waitress who took a drink orders, then our order then disappeared. No refills. We saw her serving other folks across the mostly empty room. After a lengthy wait, another waitress arrived with two cups of chili (had ordered a chili... More

The quality of the food was just like eating at Grandma's table. I have never gotten anything that wasn't delicious from this location. The staff is always friendly and helpful.

I don't normally don't give out 5 stars, but when you seat 21 people and take care of them like they did, this Cracker Barrel deserves them. Celebrated my mother's 95th birthday with the family. Everyone got what they wanted and were very pleased with their hot, fresh meals. One error with a blueberry pancake order was quickly corrected with... More

The restaurant is clean, friendly and has very good service and passable food. We kept looking for the chicken in the chicken soup and the fish was so small that it could have been an appetizer. It was inexpensive and fast.

Usually we are great Cracker Barrel fans. Here we had breakfast because that was not available at our motel next door. Some time ago we were disappointed by the CB breakfast, and it happened again here. The bread is dull and the pancakes not well cooked. On our second morning we went elsewhere.

We stopped in at about 1:00 pm after the lunch rush had cleared, to a mostly empty restaurant. Good thing they weren't busy because they had difficulty providing lunch for just two people. The server was pleasant, but nowhere to be found when we needed ketchup and butter. In fact we couldn't get anyone's attention, so Hubby's lunch got cold... More

My husband and I stopped in for breakfast since we were staying near by. It was a Sunday morning, not very busy yet, and we were seated right away. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. I appreciate that she kept our coffee cups full! The breakfast was yummy, and VERY filling. Will return if ever in the area again.
