Cracker Barrel gives the food to you the way you like it: meat loaf WITH A-1 sauce, mashed potatoes WITH white grace, turnip greens WITH pepper vinegar, biscuits WITH blackberry jam. Yum.

Cracker Barrel gives you that old time feel that puts you at ease when you want to sit down with family or friends for a good meal. My favorite is the meatloaf with all the fixins. The food is little blan as I have to salt most foods I eat there. They carry coca cola products, I'm a diet Pepsi... More

Staff are so very nice, their Southern charm and hospitality leads to alot, you can't get customer service like this anywhere in the world. They make you feel at home and that you are the one person they wish to speak with! Food is exquisite too!

Best homestyle food in town. Great food in spite of chain ownership. Very crowded & noisy at times but excellent value for the price.

The first time ever we walked into a cracker barrel with NO WAIT TIME...The people were very friendly (I was visiting from CA) and we got seated right away. Our server was very nice but a little slow and she didn't come back to see if we needed anything.

The service canbe extremely slow here and the portions are quite small. It is always busy, so some folks must enjoy it. The last time I was here, there was lipstick on my coffee cup and the food was cold when it arrives. I think they can do better.
