My daughters & I ate @Cracker Barrel last night. Not crowded. Food was served lukewarm at best. Fried Chicken fingers were difficult too eat! I was served cold brown mashed potatoes, turnip greens barely lukewarm. My daughters experienced cool to barely warm Mac n cheese....All of them complained at the cashier question.I did speak to the manager re: coldness of foods. I did pay for my trout. All he did was apologize weakly. It is futile to complain to corporate as I tried 4 times to speak with a human. My biggest concern is that someone could become very ill due to improper temperatures of the foods served.More

We ate dinner at the Cracker Barrel, which we always find good. It also gave us time to walk around the store. We found the perfect hostess gift to take with us when visitig friends in Tennessee.

Cracker Barrel is generally spot on (if you are fan, as I am) and this one in Opelika did not disappoint. The fried catfish with corn muffins and biscuits was excellent; the portion sizes perfect. The staff were extremely friendly and the manager stopped by...each table to make sure things were going well.More

University tour group of 12 stopped here unannounced. We got seated at 3 tables for 4 without delay. Our orders were taken promptly by Myranda. Food arrived as ordered rather quickly. Drinks were kept filled. Kim, the manager checked to see if we needed anything....Not all CB are equal in service and quality based on my many visits. This was an excellent visit thanks to Kim the manager and Myranda the server. Thanks to all for excellent service to an unannounced group of 12. See photos once posted.More
