Our first terrible experience at a Cracker Barrel!!!! We waited 20 minutes and no one came to our table. It wasn't until we started to leave that our server approached us. We left.

I'm writing this regarding my experience at location #131, so hopefully I have the correct one. When you've been to one Cracker Barrel, you've pretty much been to them all. You can most always have a pleasing experience food-wise. However, we ordered pancakes this morning, and they were really tough. And it's Black Friday, so even though Cracker Barrels are... More

Turkey stuffing tastes and looks horrible when it hits the table. Who ever would serve a plate of huge celery over dressing, what happened to good old cornbread dressing you once served?? Now its celery bread stuffing. No flavor and a soggy mess of celery. Yuck

Whenever we travel in the USA, we look for the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store. It makes us feel comfortable. We do not have to get off the beaten path to find it and the food and service are always good quality.

Wonderful place to spend time. Staffs there are great and friendly people. Food taste awesome. Just not a simple restaurant but a shopping place with lot of gifts and cookies and sweets

Neat and clean property including parking, gift shop, dining room and bathroom facilities. Good location. The staff is pleasant and efficient. The menu is standard for Cracker Barrel but unfortunately, this CB does not have the home-style good flavor that most of the other CBs I have visited do. I was disappointed in the dumplings and the biscuits (my favorite... More

This was not my first visit but was just as good as last time. We had the friendliest and efficient waitress. She had been working there for a year and you could tell she enjoyed her job. Our food arrived in record time and our beverage glass remained full.

Our most recent visit to this location was on a Sunday. The place was packed!! Unbelievably we were seated less than 10 minutes, our server took our order shortly after we sat down and the food arrived quickly. Great service, good food at a decent price.

We eat here as often as we can. You can get in and out pretty quickly if you are traveling, but you never feel rushed. The cooking is just like my hillbilly grandma used to fix when I was little. Love it. Great prices and good service!

Thank Karen B
