“Good home-cooked food but pricey.”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

I love going there looking at the merchandise shop and all the unique items they carry. Food is good but I think is pricey for what you get.

“Food was not great.”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

Always like to look at the items in store. Have had good experience at other Cracker Barrels. Food (fish dinner) was just average with little flavor. We did not have to wait to be seated.

“Anniversary Dinner”
Reviewed 28 November 2013

We ate here for our 14th Anniversary. It was a very very busy night but our server was AMAZING! Our drink glasses were never empty and we never had an empty plate left on our table. The food was hot and served super fast!
This Cracker Barrel is close to our house and we have eaten here many times, our experience is always outstanding.

“everything you expect from Cracker Barrel”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

The food was good, as always. This Cracker Barrel had the best service of any we have been to. Our server was prompt in taking our drink order and bringing our drinks. But in the short time he was gone two other servers had asked if anyone had taken our drink order.

We also heard several servers tell various tables "I'll be one of your servers today". It's nice to know that the restaurant is more concerned with serving their guests properly than worrying about who gets a table (ie tip)
