Excellent service here but the food is just what you'd expect. Consistent comfort food. Kids menu is a deal. Open later than other restaurants in this area.

I have eaten at Cracker Barrel restaurants before. Food was okay, but nothing to write home about. Portions seemed smaller than I remember in the past. Service was good.

Good, southern food will satisfy you anytime! This place gets crowded quickly...popular with locals and tourists alike. Great biscuits and iced tea!! Service was good, food arrived hot and tasty! Worthy of another trip soon!

My daughter brought me breakfast to the hotel where I was keeping the grandchildren from Cracker Barrel. It was so very good with everything I needed. She went back the next day and brought me the same delicious pancake breakfast.
