This is very much like every Cracker Barrel. But, we know when we stop at one of these places, it will be reliable. And this one was as good as any other we have been to. The staff is always great.......very pleasant and welcoming. Our waitress announced it was her first day and she did a great job serving us.... More

After a day of traveling and hiking, we wanted comfort food. We got it! Hubby got the grilled chicken salad and I got the fried shrimp. Warm biscuits and cornbread rounded out the plenty-to-eat meal.

I love Cracker Barrel, but this one was my least favorite so far, and I have been to several. The soup was lukewarm, as was the meatloaf. I have never had this happen at a Cracker Barrel so was disappointed. The one bright spot was our waiter Michael - he was wonderful and gracious !

After seeing a bunch of Virginia Tech stuff in the Cracker Barrel in Roanoke I had hoped for some JMU apparel in Harrisonburg. Was very disappointed to find only a few JMU things and a whole bunch of VT.

Southern comfort foods are on the menu as well as classic American fare. After your meal, spend a little time in the gift shop for cute souvenirs. Prices are fair and they have so many interesting things: CDs, ceramics, holiday decorations, inspirational gifts, baby things, toys, old fashioned candy as well as local products.

It was very crowded but with an acceptable wait time and understandable on a Friday evening. Have always had good food at any of these restaurants.

We usually stop at Cracker barrel while traveling. Today we stopped the food was good as always. The waitress was good, friendly and efficient. However the food took a lot longer than usual to come out from the kitchen.

Lunch at Cracker Barrel is always counted on to be good and filling. This location meets the standard. Nice to be able to order breakfast for lunch if that what satisfies you. The service was average although it took a while to get started and there didn't seem to be a crowd.

Stopped by to meet with some relatives in the area. It was close to our hotel. Food was good. I had the apple cider bbq grilled chicken dinner with two sides. I went for the hash brown casserole and the coleslaw. The chicken was tasty and flavorful. The casserole was very good, but the coleslaw was only okay. It was... More
