Location is conveniently located right off the interstate. They have a friendly staff and the wait is not too bad. The food is usually really good. I love having the option to eat breakfast at any time of the day.

Our family will eat regularly at the store in Pelham 1-2 visits a week, sometime more. The food is always consistenly prepared & meets expectations. Considering the store seems to be a traing site, there is some amout of turnover however the service has been exceptable 99% of the time.

Cracker Barrel is normally an excellent place to get a quick fulfilling meal. The food and service at this restaurant don't quite live up to the norm. The service seems to be very slow and the food is not the best I've had.

When on the road, we always enjoy stopping at Cracker Barrel for hearty country cooking. This was no exception. Our turkey dinners - the Thursday special - hit the spot. Service was also quick and friendly. We also had a chance to pick up some cute items from the sale area in the gift shop. In our experience, to see... More

Cracker Barrel is not only for great country cooking but also has fantastic shopping for last minute Christmas gifts! Instead of heading to the malls, I think we can get everything we need right here. Plus, we can also have a great breakfast to get us started. Cracker Barrel is one of our favorite places to eat and to shop!... More

The last 2 times we have ordered at Cracker Barrel it has been for take out. It has been very easy and since we leave nearby everything was still warm. Much better than fighting the crowd and noise. You still have to put up with the crowds shopping for treasures.

I love the cornbread, slathered with melted butter. It tastes just like my grandmother's. The veggies are cooked and seasoned just right. The service is good and quick. I LOVE the chicken and dumplings. The meatloaf is yum. I forget about the chocolate and blackberry cobblers. With ice cream. To die for!
