One thing you can always say about Cracker Barrel is you know what you're getting. Any time we do a road trip, I like to have breakfast at least once at one of the locations. In fact, I plan our route to accommodate that. Not only do I enjoy the food, but I always enjoy browsing through the gift shop... More

It was VERY crowded but we were seated fairly quickly. Our server was a young lady named Jen. She was excellent and gave us wonderful service. The food was a little slow coming and she kept telling us how sorry she was. Considering the crowd I doubt it could have been any faster. The food was great and we had... More

We visited on a weekday around 2:30 in the afternoon. We had to go to the front kitchen to finally receive apple butter for our biscuits. Ordered Chicken BLT with steak fries and was served chicken sandwich with no Bacon and no steak fries..all of this while the manager(s) sat next to our table chatting and eating a fruit parfait.

Good breakfast menu. I generally get the pancakes with hot syrup & crisp bacon. My husband gets a plate with eggs & potatoes. Staff is good. Place is always packed.

Our party of four was seated promptly . A waiter took drink orders and served me stale decaf coffee , then disappeared . When one of us flagged him down and complained, he replaced the coffee with a surly attitude and set the cup down roughly . He took our orders for food and disappeared again . We waited over...

This is probably the worst Cracker Barrel we have ate at. We were so looking forward to a good, family breakfast last weekend, but it was a complete let down. None of us enjoyed our meal. My 5 year olds sausage was completely pink we sent it back. The manager said that is what color it is and he questioned... More

With it being Christmas time this location was really busy, we only waited 10 minutes for a table which gave us time to shop :) Our server was very flustered but the food was good which made my son happy as he is addicted to Cracker Barrel.

I used to like the food, but when they do not honor the Veterans Day (have a slice of pie) option, that's pathetic. I would not recommend this to anyone at this location.

Like Cracker Barrel restaurants/stores everywhere, the food was predictable, generous portions and reasonably priced. As usual, excellent service. New breakfast item, a steak and eggs skillet, was okay, not spectacular. But we would definitely dine at this Cracker Barrel again and any other for that matter!

It's a Cracker Barrel. You know what to expect. You get a decent meal for a very reasonable price. The staff is accommodating, keeps refilling your ice tea, brings a very fresh and delicious chicken salad lunch, and you go away happy. Drop a few dollars in the "gift shop" and you're back on the road. Very reliable.

Thank MJMDanes
