We ate at this restaurant on Sunday Morning Apri 2, 2017 Service was very good. Food was very good, as with my experiecne of most Cracker Barrels. As always almost too much to eat. Would not hesitate eating there again.

The staff were very nice at this Cracker Barrel. Our one disappointment was it did take a long time to get our food. It was just "average" busy, not swamped. The people next to us were locals and said the last time they visited it...More
