Wife had trout. Very good. I ordered meatloaf. Out of meatloaf. Rebound 8 oz fried shrimp. Well, i got 1 oz of shrimp and 7 oz of breading. Souch breading that the layer closest to the shrimp was not cooked. Normally decent food. To their credit the pkace was packed.

Got there before lunch is typically served by but the time we were seated and server came to take order, it was 10:55. I asked "are you taking lunch orders yet?" and she said "no". Told her the last time we came, it was a few minutes before 11 and lunch was offered. She said they had been so busy... More

We became friends with a Korean Navy officer serving a 2-year exchange tour at one of the US Navy bases in the area. His family accompanied him and even his 2 daughters attended the local county public school. While they were living in the States, we tried to introduce them to as much of the American culture, holidays and traditions... More

We eat here often if we are in the area. Always great food, especially the catfish plate, vegetable plate,and fresh sandwich platters. And if you are there for breakfast,yum! Fabulous coffee.

We frequent this restaurant since the food is good and it is near our home. It offers a variety of foods, including breakfast, all day which is a plus when every member of the family wants something different. I can honestly say I have never had a bad meal here, but the service varies depending on who you get and... More

Great breakfast to reward my family for leaving the OBX at 6 am. We pulled in at 7:15 and were seated immediately. Kenneth, our server, was polite, courteous and professional. The food is very comforting and incredibly good. On top of all that, it's also a great value. This particular location has been our choice for at least two years... More

Today we changed things up a bit and ordered out of our regular pallet. My handsome husband ordered the blueberry French toast. He doesn't like regular French toast by the way, but this was terrific ! It was much better than a pastry ! He had concerns because in the description it talked about lemon which is not a big...

Service is always good, food quality is up and down, and sometimes a slow kitchen. best advice is to make note right away with the server that something is not right.

Well we stopped for lunch and there was no wait. The food is always good at Cracker Barrel and reasonably priced. I accidentally spilled my tea almost as soon as the waitress, Leann, put it down. I was so embarassed...She came over and cleaned it up immediately with the best demeanor. She was very kind and friendly. 👍🏻👍🏻 Leann :)
