We did a pickup order for our family. The food was hot and tasty. Most of our family ordered chicken and dumplings. The hamburger steak was a little dry. We enjoyed our dinner

Unusually poor service. Server (April L) put food at one end of the table and had to use a fork to coax plates to my place. We had party of three and it was same for all of us. Did not return to fill drinks...for a long long time. I tried to get managers attention for more coffee. Raised my cup but he just stared. He walked past and I tried to ask him but he just kept walking. Went back into the kitchen myself and poured my own coffee. Food was pretty good but will not return to this Cracker Barrell. Perkins is so much better and easier to find too. First time I have been so disappointed in a Cracker Barrel.More

I am always amazed when I get my bill from Cracker Barrel. Four of us ate for about $60. We had wonderful meals and more than ample servings. I had enough left over for a snack meal. The food was top quality. We had a...new server in training, and she did a very good job. She kept the drinks flowing.More

I have stayed away from eating at Cracker Barrel for decades until my trip to Bristol. It was located right next to my hotel room and I had never tried their breakfast service. My wife and I were happy we gave it a go. We...enjoyed it. The decor is typical Cracker Barrel. The place was clean and our waitress pleasant. The food was fantastic! Try the blueberry pancakes. Their biscuits and gravy is pretty good as well.More

I have been craving the 4 piece fried chicken dinner since it was announced a few months ago. My wife and I stopped in for lunch during the peak hours and were seated immediately. I ordered the chicken dinner, with hash brown casserole and the...house salad. My wife ordered the deep fried turkey with the same sides. The meal was delivered within 15 minutes, prepared and served hot and fresh. We both brought home enough to have another meal the following evening. Very pleased with service ,cleanliness ,quality of food and price. Hats off to the manager and staffing at the Bristol Va. Cracker Barrel.More

This is a very good Cracker Barrel, relatively new. We were there for breakfast, crowded, but not too long of a wait. Very helpful waitress, kept the coffee coming!

I stopped here and had a breakfast in the morning. The cornbread muffins are divine for sure. Can never go wrong here and it is also convenient for a little Christmas shopping on the way home.

If you are trying to decide on where to eat Cracker Barrel is always good no matter where you are, service could have been better

This was the first time we stopped in Bristol, VA for a 'sit down' dinner. Typically - we only stop in Bristol to find gas and stop at a local Bakery. This trip - we were dying for a meal so we decided to try...the local Cracker Barrel. First - the location of this restaurant is on a hill that overlooks the interstate. Very pretty view and the exterior was decorated to match the local vibe of the area. With the flowers in bloom - who wouldn't want to check out this restaurant? There was no waiting because we were dining in the middle of the week at around 3 in the afternoon. Not a typical time for a rush of patrons. I will say the layout of the restaurant was slightly different than other Cracker Barrel restaurants we have visited. The partitions that are strategically laid out in the dining room were PERFECT!! I felt like they gave a tad bit of a buffer to that echo in the noise that all Cracker Barrel restaurants experience. Ordering was quick and we received our order very fast. The food was hot and delicious. The only 'complaint' would be the fact we didn't see our waitress the rest of the meal. She had left a pitcher of tea at the table behind us so we just poured our own drink refills and were happy to do so. I would have like it if the waitress came by at least once to check on food temp, refills, and to see if we needed anything else. Otherwise - the meal was great!! Good location, quick seating, hot delicious food like you expect from Cracker Barrel.More

Cracker Barrel food is reliably good. We had a good meal. The service was terrible. It took 20 minutes for server to take our order and then one entree arrived incorrect. Server never returned to our table. Had to ask manger for check.
