The Fort Payne store has always been a favorite. Never have issues with wrong food, only issue has been getting water refills. Food is always hot and delicious, and usually quick...great home town chain eatery.

Went New Year's Day. What a mistake. Super crowded & apparently overwhelmed. Slow service & got my order wrong. Took 3 people to get it right. Hubby was done by the time I started eating.

Can't go wrong with some country cooking from the Cracker Barrel and a meander around their country store. Everything you know and love from this trusted brand. Service was good to boot (though another server was picking her teeth as she delivered food. That was pretty nasty).

When in Oxford AL I stay at the Laquinta inn. The cracker Barrell is right across the street. It's got great people, excellent service,awesome food. If you even have to drive a bit to get there hit the Oxford Cramer barrel. It's really worth your time.

Walked right in and was seated, I ate the Catfish and steak fries which were good but the hash brown casserole was very good and the service we received from Dana was good also.

I like this Cracker Barrel because it is always clean and the food is consistent. Many times I will have breakfast rather than lunch or dinner. It is nice to have breakfast all day long. The pumpkin muffins are great. If you need a gift ask for Shonda she will help you greatly!!

If you like good country cooking this is the place to eat. They offer anything from roast beef, meatloaf to pinto beans. We eat here often with our family and friends and as a couple. They offer breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you're really hungry spring for one of their awesome deserts.

I had lunch at the Cracker Barrel in Fort Payne, AL. It was extremely busy, even at 2:00 pm in the afternoon. The employees were friendly, the server met my needs, and the food was hot. The only disappointment: I ordered a sweet potato as one of my side items. It was not until the meat and other vegetable was... More

I love Cracker Barrel. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The fact I can get breakfast anytime and it's made fresh is great for me. Then there is the gift shop. Wonderful!
