Had breakfast at this Cracker Barrel, from which I expected good things, since I've gone to and favorably rated another Cracker Barrel in a nearby town. Pretty disappointing; the coffee was not great, knives were dirty, the serving of scrambled eggs was tiny, and the sourdough toast tasted sweet, and not in a good way. I have had a lot... More

My servers are very nice and attentive. The managers always come by everyones table to ask how is everything. If you go on a regular basis you are greeted by your first name.

Unfortunately, the mandatory trip through the gift shop area to enter and exit the restaurant is way too much for a 5 year... More

My sister who was visiting from Texas wanted to go here for lunch with 2 other family members. Our waitress, Carm, was friendly, polite and very nice. I had chicken noodle soup that was hearty and a chicken salad sandwich. I was pleasantly surprised that the sandwich was not loaded with mayonnaise. It tasted fresh, maybe just a tad bland,... More

On our way home we got off exit 9, we were going to search the GPS for restaurants and Cracker Barrel was right there. I haven't been to one in years and my wife had never been so we thought let's give it a try. My wife was amazed by the "gift shop" we had to walk through to get... More

We came in on New Year's Eve and we had an excellent meal. Everything was so tasty and our waiter, Thomas, was so great. Would definitely recommend!

Lunch was hot and quick-quite tasty. The server was very polite and attentive. The location has ample parking and easy access from the highway. The gift shop has a large variety of quirky items- lots of fun to browse.

Friendly staff. Darlene was my waitress. I did not have to wait as it was a Wednesday and not a weekend. Good food. Would definitely return.

We were seated promptly but the server took a considerable amount of time to get to our table. she was prepping a take out order. She did apologize and put our order in quickly. The food was delicious and hot plus presented nicely. All else went well so no major complaints in all.. .
