“Great place for coffee & to stretch your legs & reenergize.”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

We were on a really long road trip, and needed some coffee and a place to relax for a while, eat a little, and re-energize. Our waitress was so good, I hope to find my receipt and find out her name. She made a fresh pot of coffee for me, and kept it filled. We told her we needed a little while to figure out what we wanted to eat, it was too late for lunch but too early for dinner. She was so patient & attentive. The food is good, not great, but the atmosphere makes up for that. I had breakfast, it was good, my son had chicken & dumplings, he didnt like it. He ate it though. The store is really cool, lots of retro stuff, candy and more candy. Like really retro candy from the 60's. If you need a place with super clean restrooms, terrific coffee, friendly staff, very nice gift shop, and fairly decent food, this is the place. My advice would be to stick with the breakfast menu.

“Family visiting Dothan AL”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

It's good to find out that there's a CB near by and around town. Glad to eat good food. Server was very accommodating. Not much wait time. Went around the store and always love to see the new stuff they have. Convenient place and around other shops. Great dining! Always enjoyed it.

“Dependable Stop On The Road”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

Always enjoy browsing the gifts, candy, drinks, etc., and the food is consistent from town to town. Convenient to the neighboring hotels, and a welcome stop when the hotel's "free" breakfast disappoints.

“Friendly people good food”
Reviewed 18 May 2013 via mobile

This Cracker Barrel is just as good as any other but the wait staff is really friendly. Food was good and somewhat fast didn't have to wait to sit down on a Saturday morning.

“Went Today”
Reviewed 6 May 2013

My kids love going to "The Barrel" for breakfast. The wait staff is always friendly, their pancakes are the best by far. One of the only places our children actually eat their food.
