The wait staff has always been polite and accommodating. The restaurant is usually pretty clean, I have had better food at other places for better prices. Cracker Barrel is not a bad place to eat but prefer other places over Cracker Barrel.

We had a great server but the food was not as good as most CBs that I have been too. The pecan pancakes were almost burnt and had maybe three little pecans in each pancake.

We've eaten here for years. You can't go often as it is pretty pricey. The service is nearly always friendly and prompt. Once in awhile you get a server who is too eager to please and comes across as too aggressive, not often though. I highly recommend the Sunday Special, the Homestyle Chicken. It is 2 chicken breasts dipped in... More

The service is always wonderful at this Cracker Barrel. The environment is always family friendly and accommodating. Unfortunately, the food was not great. Hash brown casserole was barely warm and crunchy and the chicken fried steak was tough and dry. I am rarely disappointed with this restaurant, but today was the exception.
