My friend and I celebrated St Patrick's Day at Cracker Barrel. The portions were very generous and the corned beef was very tender and tasty. The cabbage was cooked perfectly. My friend and I shared the chocolate cake with some of the best tasting vanilla ice cream I've ever eaten.

I love Cracker Barrel and this was my first time eating at this location because it's right next door to the Hotel that I was staying. The food was delicious, the service was great and need I say more.... I will definitely eat here again the next time I drive up.

While staying next door at the Marriott, this Cracker Barrel was extremely close to our hotel , located just steps away! We ordered take out two days in a row and it was very good.

We visited this location with a party of 8. They put 2 tables together, but we had 2 waitresses. Kind of confusing if you were sitting in the middle. We did get one check. The waitresses were friendly and helpful. Our food came out fairly quickly. One person had to wait extra long for their food even though they ordered... More

Always good food! Excellent service from Jessica C. Friendly overall place to take family to eat dinner. Retail store employees were nice and so were the managers. Good place to eat and visit when in town.

Southern cookin', so good. All the comfort food you could ask for is waiting for you. For those of us who love our Mommas cook, this is one of my favorite places to eat. The rocking chairs on the porch brings me back to my grandmas home, and those biscuits are so reminiscent of home. Breakfast is served all day,... More

We arrived kind of late, had a good meal and the service was good. Even being late the dining room was clean and well kept!

The quality of food in all the Asheville, NC area has gone down hill drastically. We recently received barely warm food. Had we not had to be on the road, we would have sent the food back.

Ate here with my parents and my two sons while on vacation. It was your typical, reliable Cracker Barrel experience. We've actually eaten here two days in a row...brunch yesterday and lunch today. Yesterday, the grilled chicken tenders were sub par from their usual flavorful state. Today, the food was better, but the highchair brought for my youngest had about... More
