We like Cracker Barrel after a long day of driving. You can order mix and match, the food is not fancy but good, the service is quick and the prices are reasonable. What more can you ask for when you're tired and hungry?

Stopped in while traveling. My wife loves their meatloaf. I ordered the chicken livers. Both were well cooked and big servings. I had a sweet potato side that, while a little on the small side, was very good.

Service: Outstanding Food: Hot and as we ordered. Atmosphere: Warm and Inviting. As a couple we walked in this Cracker Barrel fairly late one evening. A winter storm was due in the next few hours. As a result, we were the only two customers at the restaurant. When we saw this was the case, we told the hostess that they... More

Most Cracker Barrel restaurants serve average food. This one was truly uninspired. The service was ok, but the food was bland. It is really hard to screw up a Ruben sandwich, but the cook at this CB did so. The flavor was lacking and it is even looked as though the sandwich was an afterthought on the cook's part.
