So this place is ok if they are not busy, we go here quite often and they are usually consistent on food quality, however if it's packed turn around and RUN. Had some ridiculously bad experiences at this location when busy ! Beware.

We were able to have lunch and the following day breakfast. Both were wonderful experiences. The staff for both seating were very friendly and the service was fast and excellent. The store was filled with many memories of our youth. Wish we had one near our house.

We eat at Cracker Barrel often. Food is great for families. Not expensive and kid friendly. Chicken, burgers, fish, pork chops and more. Breakfast is wonderful. With pancakes, eggs, steak, grits, waffles and hot syrup and butter.

No crowd, walked right in on a weekday early afternoon. Excellent service by Katie (4-year veteran) and quick food, even though it seems we caught the tail end of a large rush.

Took forever to be waited on and no refills of beverage. Ordered the combo plate of ham, meatloaf and chicken and dumplings. Ham was burned, meatloaf was cold and it was all dumplings, no chicken. No bread offered. Waste of money.

Love the atmosphere. Always crowded,but that's because it is such a great value for families. Service is friendly. Real home cooking, with great atmosphere. Nice store to shop in.
