Went to Cracker Barrel for an early dinner. Was able to get a table right away. The waiter came instantly and wanted to take our order. I like that but this was only my second ever visit so I was unsure what to get. I decided on roast beef with mashed potatoes with sides of green beans and broccoli. The... More

You can normally count on this place for a quick solid meal. Seated for 10 minutes with no server...asked twice and recruited a trainee who took our order. Food was overcooked, eventually determined server Faith was regularly mia. Surprisingly disappointed.

They have changed their menu a bit since the last time I was there. Tried their new burger, it was good, but the sides were skimpy. I literally got a tablespoon of coleslaw and 22 french fries. McDonald's gives you more fries in a Happy Meal. Server didn't seem to be very enthusiastic. Only saw him four times. Take our... More

An extremely popular eatery in Lynchburg, but frequented by lots of senior citizens, so don't look for empty handicapped parking. I used to take my mother there. She had a handicapped placard and, indeed, had difficulty walking. Not once, however, did we find a vacant handicapped space. Once you get in, the smells of cinnamon and old-fashioned candy are enticing,... More

Cracker Barrel is well known, so there's not a lot to add to their already great reputation, but the folks in this Lynchburg store/restaurant o the extra mile.

Since we were passing through Lynchburg a coupe of days before Christmas, we thought we would stop at this Cracker Barrel for breakfast. Other than a 30 minute wait to be seated, we had a good experience. The restaurant was packed, but waitress was friendly and took good care of us. Food was good.

This location is near Liberty University and the servers are so very nice. The food is your standard good cracker barrel stuff. But what makes this location awesome is the staff!

This Cracker Barrel was like most other restaurants in the popular chain. The difference, we noticed, was the friendliness of the staff, Service was rapid and friendly. The facility was clean and attractive. The food was delicious.
