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.

I recommend any of the breakfast items. Country fried steak is good as well. The place is always clean and the staff is very nice and helpful. If you want friendly service and good food at a decent price, this is the pace.

Thank rwestadjuster
