We were jammed together, so that the adjoining table patrons, apologized for asking us to move, so they could get up. Probably is 1 too many tables squeezed along the... More

Had a business lunch at this restaurant. The hostess and server were very polite and helpful and we were served up our meals in a short period to time. The dining area was busy but service was quick. Meal was good. Dr. Marc, PS 63:7

Cracker Barrel is always a safe choice. The food is good and the wait staff is usually prompt. Such was the case with this one. Alex was always there when we needed her and was very efficient. We didn't have to ask twice for anything and she was excellent at keeping the glasses full. We found out, that the stars... More

Came for "Turkey & Dressing," BUT, Thursday is the day for that delicacy !!! The country ham was good, as was the veggies. Of course, the cornbread muffins are fantastic. Our wait, Andrew, was exceptional !!! Seriously, he was the best !!! Management was very attentive to the customers; a welcome feature !!!
