Food was good as usual. I asked for a small bowl of lemon with my catfish.... (I usually don't get enough or have to ask twice but she brought lots). Cat fish was great, as was everything else. The only bad part was my coca...More

Maybe it was the time of day, but this cracker barrel was pretty nice for a change. Our waitress was a 4 Star which helped a lot. She was attentive and our breakfast was quick and easy. It was so good that on our return...More

Understaffed, 23 empty tables, 15 of them unbussed, turning people away with ridiculous wait times of 25 minutes. Can't get the country chicken because they ran out of flour! Ran out of flour? How does Cracker Barrel run out of flower. No reason for the...More
