We love going to Cracker barrel for Sunday brunch. My son and fiance get breakfast and I always get the buttermilk fried chicken breast with string beans and macaroni and cheese. Sunday is the only day that we can go, which is a good thing, because that's the only day that they serve my favorite dish. We always have friendly... More

Food was perfect!! I had haddock, cheese grits, turnip greens, baked sweet potato. Dessert of apple pecan streusel was disappointing... not at all sweet. Waitress was great, except she put check down while I was still eating!! That has always been a point of contention with me!! So, when I was finished, I had to ask her to come over... More

Slightly crowded with the tables pretty close and the seats aren't too comfortable, but the food and the waitstaff are great!

Visited here for a quick bite after taking a tour of Yale. Quality food at a reasonable price. Only issue was service was slow. Not the waitress' fault but the kitchen. Because it was slow, my wife spent extra time in the shop. Chicken and dumplings were solid. The chocolate pecan pie was very good.

Always great southern cooking at any of the Cracker Barrels you eat at. The service here is better than most Cracker Barrels that I have eaten at. Sometimes there is a little wait but never more than 20 minutes

We had dinner here basically because it was close to the highway. I ordered the Friday night fish fry, but they brought out the catfish, I ate it anyway and it was ok.

Cool store up front, great prices, good service in a cool environment. The food, not so much. Eggs were tasteless, sausage I didn't like, grits were ok and biscuits descent. I guess I would return but to check out their dinner menu. My son of course had fun because there's games to play and coloring to do. The upfront store... More
