Typical Cracker Barrel food (which is always hearty), great service, and reasonable prices. Just up the road from the interstate makes for a good meeting location.

I love going to Cracker Barrel especially on Sunday's when the have the fried chicken special. The chicken takes a while as it is made to order (good time to browse the store). It's also greasy (to be expected) but the coating on the outside is like no other. I always have leftovers as they give you 2 large breasts... More

My dad loves this place so when I go home we will go at least once during my visit. The food & experience is the same at every Cracker Barrel in the country so nothing stands out.

The waitress that waited on us was very friendly and kept checking on us to see how everything was. Very nice. Was a lot quieter inside than some of the other Cracker Barrels that we have visited.

Went with friends. Easy to find just off I-64. Ample parking. Traditional Cracker Barrel with gift shopping and Southern style food. We tried the lunch special: chicken breast with cornbread dressing. The chicken was bony and overcooked. The dressing was burned on the bottom. It really was a lot like the home-cooking mistakes we've made ourselves. It was still better... More

Good atmosphere. Waiters are great. Everyone was friendly. Roast dinner with mashed potatoes, mac & cheese, green beans,boiled cabbage were all delicious. The seasonal muffin (pumpkin spice) is good.

Recently my mom thought she had lost her money at Cracker Barrel. George stepped up to the situation and made good the dilemma. Thankfully she found her money and I returned what he had given her out of his own pocket. Wonderful gesture.

We stopped in at about 8pm tonight. There were not that many people in there. Maybe 30 at the most! It took at least 10 minutes to get someone to take us to a table. (That right there should have been a sign to leave!) We FINALLY were taken to a table. The couple sitting beside us got up and... More
