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

Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, Nashville Reviews - Write a Review
Unbelievably terrible experience. We waited 10 minutes for a seat. After being seated, we waited another 15+ minutes. No server ever offered us something to drink. We left, after several groups around us who were seated after us, were served before us. We were not the only ones either. When we got up and left, there were people who were seated prior to us who were still waiting for their drink order to be taken. Never had a worse experience at a Cracker Barrel. I didn't even want to give this a 1 though, and I have never posted a negative comment prior to this. After leaving, we went to West Nashville to another restaurant where customer service is clearly a greater concern.
I can't say enough good things about Cracker Barrel. This location is near the interstate easy to get in and out of. The country store is always filled with something different the holiday seasons are the best. The food is always tasty and consistent. The breakfast is my favorite. Great lunch options. This is a great place to dine alone or with friends
Normally good food with great service, but there is the exception here and there. Today was one of those exceptions. The put American cheese on my sandwich which called for Colby cheese, normally wouldn't say nothing but American cheese doesn't go with grilled chicken tenderloin sandwich on sour dough bread, and by time I got food my family of course has done finished eating and without saying they had to wait for me to eat, 9 and 11 yrs old children to stay in a spot over 1 hr can be challenging, specially after finishing eating. I'll prob go back to same location because of convenience so I'll keep y'all updated about this location.
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.
