Great food and great service. I have many dietary restrictions but Cracker Barrel still had several options on the menu that I could have.

Had a burger, which was fine but unremarkable and in a bun that was just blah. Fries were okay, biscuits were very good. What else can you say about a Cracker Barrel except I can't believe they sell the crap they have in the storefront.

Our group of 18 went in at 9:00 p.m. on 12-15-17. I did tell them that we could be broken up into 3 parties of 6. The rude supervisor rolled her eyes at us and got mad because we didn't call in before going in...More
