This was probably my second visit ever to a Cracker Barrel and this place was fantastic. The server Rebecca was really on point helping us out and getting us our order. As we visited the shop, she came out as soon as the food came out and let us know. The food was hot and delicious all around. Best okra... More

Arrived for breakfast after a 3 hour drive. Great service, great coffee and great food. Never had a bad meal at any of their restaurants and this time was no exemption.

Ate here with about 10 other family members on Saturday night. We had two servers for our large table. One busted her behind making sure everyone was taken care of; the other server was hardly seen and messed up all 5 orders he took. Food was only average. I really wanted to enjoy the experience more than I did. Friendly... More

I have nothing bad to say about the food because it's Cracker Barrel - it's the same everywhere and exactly what you expect. The service at this particular location, however, is subpar. The service was never anything to rave about during the multiple past visits, but our most recent visit to this particular location will be our last. My wife... More

Just your average cracker barrel. Food is always decent, I've never had a bad experience here. Staff is always friendly and food comes out in a good time frame

Cracker Barrel has been my "main stay" for traveling food. Earlier in the day I had eaten lunch in another city and since I flew in late to Huntsville, it only made sense to eat a good dinner before driving home. This restaurant is like most all Cracker Barrel's. It was clean, inviting, and the food was great. My server,... More

Great service for the lunch crowd and so many healthy options! It is wonderful to be able to order breakfast at any time and also be able to satisfy several others tastes when in a business meeting.

We had a great waiter, very friendly, together with very good bus boys and girls. The staff here seems more uniformly friendly than the Athens Cracker Barrel. This visit was for breakfast on the way to the airport, so time was a factor. Everything was taken care of quickly (and, it was busy that morning), and we got out of... More

Definitely good service. I did have a bad experience with my chicken being undercooked but they immediately replaced it along with my sides. The manager brought it back out himself and let me cut it to be sure it was ok before he left. Definitely a good experience despite the mishap.

We have eaten at the Cracker Barrel in Madison for several years. For years it was obvious that the management took pride in the restaurant including the food quality and service. The norm now is far less. The food quality is just not as good as it once was. I have had my dinners delivered barely warm with cold mashed... More
