About Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, Nashville
Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, Inc. is an American chain of combined restaurant and gift stores with a Southern country theme. The company was founded by Dan Evins in 1969; its first store was in Lebanon, Tennessee, which remains the company headquarters. The chain's stores were at first positioned near Interstate highway exits in the Southeastern and Midwestern United States, but it has expanded across the country during the 1990s and 2000s. As of September 18, 2012, the chain operates 639 stores in 43 states. Cracker Barrel's menu is based on traditional Southern cuisine, with appearance and decor designed to resemble an old-fashioned general store. Each restaurant features a front porch lined with wooden rocking chairs, a stone fireplace, and decorative artifacts from the local area. Cracker Barrel is known for its partnerships with country music performers. It has received attention for its charitable activities, such as its assistance of victims of Hurricane Katrina and injured war veterans. Employees there wear a choice of either white, yellow, blue or pink shirts. During the 1990s, the company was the subject of controversy for its official stance against gay and lesbian employees and for discriminatory practices against African-American customers and female employees. In 2004, a U.S. Department of Justice (USDOJ) investigation found that Cracker Barrel discriminated against minority customers; patrons complained of racially segregated seating and service quality. In an agreement with the USDOJ, Cracker Barrel implemented non-discrimination policies and pledged to focus on improving minority representation and civic involvement, particularly in the black community. Company shareholders added sexual orientation to the company's non-discrimination policy in 2002.Wikipedia

One of the busiest Cracker Barrel locations there is, but also one of the best. They have great staff with great smiles and friendly attitudes. Good for all meal types. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Though there may be a wait for a table, the customers themselves typically are very excited to wait and look around the shop, or sit outside on the porch. Great family environment.
Maybe I'm getting pickier as I get older, or maybe i just want value for my money, but to me Cracker Barrel is just another too cold restaurant attempting to sell and serve hot food. The combination just doesn't work. You either eat cold food, or if you're lucky it arrives sufficiently hot and you gobble quickly through it trying to beat the cold. Either way it's less than enjoyable. That said the food (and the cold) is consistent, so you know what to expect.
By far the worst Cracker Barrel experience we've ever had. We were seated immediately but the food didn't arrive for an hour. Other tables with equal party sizes were able to sit/order/eat/leave before our food came out. Our waiter was very nice and apologetic, BUT the manager refused to acknowledge us or the issue. The manager kept walking around and talking to other customers but he would turn his head and avoid our table. The manager sent our waiter to apologize, but he avoided us. Even as we were leaving the manager darted quickly to the kitchen to avoid passing us and having to speak. I'm sure the wait staff and kitchen could improve, but I'm putting the bulk of this on the manager. If you have an hour to spend waiting for your food and an extra 15 minutes for salad dressing (for your salad) then this is the place for you!
This Cracker Barrel was one of the best we've eaten at! The staff was great, and Theresa the retail store manager was on her game! The store was well stocked and neat! Love the music that's played overhead, you can't go wrong with George Strait:)
Easy to get too but heavily trafficked area. Usually have a wait, better around 7:30 pm. Rocking chairs & checkerboard in the front (outside) while you wait. Friendly staff, food is ok, service is fairly quick once you are seated. Nice atmosphere.
