Excellent food and fast and friendly service. Ask for Lizeth (server) for friendly service from someone that takes her job seriously! Also, ask for Thad Thompson (manager) and he'll be glad to come to your table and greet you with a genuine smile. We enjoyed a typical delicious Cracker Barrel meal and can't say enough about the service. We ate... More

The food and wait were about what you expect at Cracker Barrel. Time to look around in the general store without getting bored. Time to play the golf tee game while waiting for food but not too long. Food was very good.

Ordered the lunch special, which was Meatloaf on Tuesday. Price was good, and Cracker Barrel meatloaf was fine as normal. Waitress did not bring jam requested, and did not refill water, and messed up the cornmeal muffin vs biscuit order. Ladies toilets were closed for a plumbing issue for about 40 minutes, and loud banging could be heard. I have... More

I have never been as disappointed in a Cracker Barrel, as I was last Wednesday night after church. My wife and I wanted to get something to eat before heading home, and thought we haven't been to Cracker Barrel in a while. The place didn't seem too busy so we thought we would be in and out fairly quickly. We... More

Still crowded and noisy as Cracker Barrel's have always been but the staff was less friendly, the food not as well cooked, and portions seem smaller.

My family eats at CB probably 1-2 times a month. It's the only restaurant in our community that offers such a wide variety of vegetables. CB is the place we go when we want a "home cooked" meal.
