This place is always busy! The country store atmosphere is charming. It's a plus to have the store to browse in while waiting for a table.

We were seated right away and our our order was taken without much delay but it took over half an hour to get our food (breakfast) and the food was awful. The scrambled eggs were way over done and cold, hash browns were gooey and biscuits not quite done. We waited too long, paid too much for the worst meal... More

Another nice meal at Cracker Barrel. This time in Elizabethtown, KY. Our waitress Missy was very polite and attentive. The oven fried chicken is fantastic. So is the hamburger steak.

Originally, I had planned to stop for a meal closer to Mammoth Cave but time got away from me. I needed to find a place close to the highway and of a known quality. Score a plus for both plus the service was stellar today. Rather than getting something off of the dinner menu the breakfast sampler appealed to me... More

Ate breakfast after getting off from work. I had the double meat breakfast with biscuits. The biscuits were very hard and crunchy. The eggs were decent along with the bacon. The best item on my plate was the grits. It was okay just expected more from Cracker Barrel.

Our waitress was awesome. We brought a fairly large group in around 7pm. We were seated quickly and the service was impeccable.

First time I have ever had bad service at a Cracker Barrel. We waited an hour to be told the did not have what we ordered after being told twice our food was almost ready. Several others around us also complained about food being bad or wrong. We got up and left after an hour and 15 minutes. Waste of... More

We have been to many Cracker Barrel restaurants; we ate at 4 different locations over the last 3 days in KY. The food is always fresh and good, and you know what to expect every time. My grandsons enjoy the biscuits, and they say that Cracker Barrel has "the best biscuits anywhere"; I have to agree! Day or night, we... More
