This restaurant is pretty close to home cooked meals as your going to get and they don't allow you in the kitchen. The staff is very friendly. The pricing is reasonable and you won't leave hungry. They also have a very large gift shop a ton of stuff in it,something for everyone.

I love this place, and so do my kids. The wait staff is busy, but kind and helpful. The food is always good, and everyone loves the general store.

Something was off when we were there. It was not real crowded but it too awhile to get our order placed and receive our food. The biscuits were dry and burned on the edges. The temperature of the food could have been warmer too. This meal was not up to Cracker Barrel standards in my opinion

Place was packed Saturday 11am. We had a 5 minute wait, order taken quickly, coffee was hot (very hot) and food was delicious. Recommed the "egg in a basket". Yes it's a chain but servers were working together pouring coffee at tables that weren't theirs, etc. Place is clean and gift shop had some real bargains in the clothing clearance... More

Always great I always order pancakes particularly mamas breakfast. You always know what to expect service is good and people are friendly. The good thing about this one is it is never as busy as those along the freeway. The longest I've never had to wait it's been four or five minutes.

My wife & I were in the area for a combined business and pleasure trip. The Cracker Barrel is a little tricky to find. They food is reasonably priced and good as usual. You won't be disappointed!

My first time eating at Cracker Barrel, a little disappointed with their service, and cleanliness. First off the place looks cool and we had heard of how it's good food at reasonable prices. Well that is still good but our coffee was watered down, utensils were dirty and our table was sticky from the previous customer. BTW we were the... More

Seems like a fairly new place, nice and friendly workers. Convenient location just off I64, late he parking lot. However, my "scrambled" eggs came out like a chopped salad- obviously fixed in a hurry with no scrambling just chopping👎🏿 Had to beg for some jelly for the hot but bland biscuits . The turkey sausage was standard small patties but... More
