We had a great dinner tonight. The service was excellent and the food was hot and fresh. I tried the new kale and brussel sprout salad and it was really good! Cracker Barrel is always safe bet.

A pretty typical Cracker Barrel which is why most people visit. You know what you're going to get. Great service made it stand out though.

Friendly service very busy and even though we had a large group of 9 we still were seated within 20 min. Typical chain food all was fine but one of our friends had the fried cod. The only problem was there was essentially NO fish. It was all breading. So after he ate the first piece we deconstructed the others... More

Typical Cracker Barrel food (which is always hearty), great service, and reasonable prices. Just up the road from the interstate makes for a good meeting location.

I love going to Cracker Barrel especially on Sunday's when the have the fried chicken special. The chicken takes a while as it is made to order (good time to browse the store). It's also greasy (to be expected) but the coating on the outside is like no other. I always have leftovers as they give you 2 large breasts... More

My dad loves this place so when I go home we will go at least once during my visit. The food & experience is the same at every Cracker Barrel in the country so nothing stands out.

The waitress that waited on us was very friendly and kept checking on us to see how everything was. Very nice. Was a lot quieter inside than some of the other Cracker Barrels that we have visited.

Went with friends. Easy to find just off I-64. Ample parking. Traditional Cracker Barrel with gift shopping and Southern style food. We tried the lunch special: chicken breast with cornbread dressing. The chicken was bony and overcooked. The dressing was burned on the bottom. It really was a lot like the home-cooking mistakes we've made ourselves. It was still better... More

Good atmosphere. Waiters are great. Everyone was friendly. Roast dinner with mashed potatoes, mac & cheese, green beans,boiled cabbage were all delicious. The seasonal muffin (pumpkin spice) is good.
