Our server was very polite and answered all of our questions regarding her unique name, the restaurant, and the menu choices. Cracker Barrel has great tasting "comfort food" and is reasonably priced.

Had two outstanding breakfasts here. Once going and once on my return trip back home Ms. Tabby and Lauren were delightful servers. Keeping my tea filled and having on for the road. Need to try the new summer menu it all looks great.
