Cracker Barrel is usually a good place for a hearty breakfast or country dinner. When we were at this restaurant, it seemed rather disorganized. Lots of dirty tables, and had a hard time getting drink refills. Food was fine.

This is a rather good chain for the strata it serves. You can usually depend on good service and solid basic food. The Huntsville store lately has been the exception. The last couple of times we have visited were disasters. They don 't seem to have enough help. Even Though there was a line for reservations, the staff member at... More

Once again CBRL dissapoints with their ridiculous water downed coffee. If it weren't for family I'd be at Waffle House getting a decent cup of coffee. Not great just decent. CBRL if you are reading this offer tour customers an alternative to this brown water you are calling coffee !!!

On our trip to North Carolina to return our grandchildren to their parents we stopped for dinner at the Cracker Barrel east of Knoxville, TN. They are one of our favorites and can always be depended on for a reasonable and good meal for adults and children. Our server, Sarah was both pleasant and efficient. A favorite for the kids...

Normally we have a wonderful dependable experience while eating here, but for some reason getting a to go order only we were forgotten and ended up with a much longer wait than normal. I assume this was just a hiccup on what normally is a very week trained and managed restaurant

This was a pick up order. We tried to call several times but no one answered the phone. Drove over and gave order at front. I was given the wrong vegetable but it was still good. My daughters order included steamed vegetables but the veggies were actually still raw. Overall as usual a great go to for a full meal... More

This place is incredibly loud and not exactly my idea of having a quite breakfast with family. The food however was excellent. Cracker Barrel should really consider installing noise reducing materials into their ceilings and walls. This is not the first time we ran into this problem at Cracker Barrel and my comments are not based on crying children. I... More

Went here for breakfast on a Sunday morning with a group of friends. The size of our group didn't seen to affect anything. The service was great, the food arrived by the arm full and the price was good. We had a wonderful meal and a good time. I'd recommend this place any time, just make sure you are hungry!... More

worst ever, missing items from our plates, frozen butter for the biscuits, two people at the table never got their food. We had to hunt the manager down and she was really not too concerned with our experience.

Ordered the Wednesday lunch special of chicken pot pie. Was delivered hot and steamy with a golden brown, flakey crust covering the entire dish top. Once I broke the crust open, steam rose from it. Was too hot to eat and let it cool a few minutes. Had a creamy broth filled with peas and carrots and potatoes and lots... More
