Is not safe for Celiac. After being seated we informed our server that we had someone who was GF in our party. Server than asked “what is that?”. Waitstaff is not trained on handling of food allergies. When she asked her manager for guidance we were informed their cook tops are used with gluten containing ingredients too so there is cross contamination.

I have four members in my family who are gluten free, and so far, we have had several successful meals here without getting sick. We stick with the grilled chicken salad (no croutons) or the maple bacon glazed grilled chicken with a loaded baked sweet potato and green beans. They have a handful of sides that are gluten free.

Very poor choices, basically eggs and that's it. No GF pancakes, toast or anything else.

I work here in the back. Definitely can't promise no cross contamination. I (andrew) am back here as a dishwasher some days if you are going to risk it. Fryers are a no go. The flat top grill can be made safe, but whether or not the cooking utensils have contamination from somewhere is up in the air. Now, gluten aside, the food looks to be of quite good quality.

Online you’ll see they have “gluten free menu” There is only about two items for breakfast , a fruit bowl, and possibly egg whites. Every other item is on a grill and cross contamination. Not a good choice for anyone with Celiac .

the gluten free menu is kind of small, but it’s easy to work around. i got the vegetable plate, and since they have a wide variety of vegetable/fruit/etc. sides you can pick whichever floats your boat. i personally chose green beans, pinto beans, turnip greens, and fried apples

Sharee the manager was so wonderful. She took the time to speak with me first, and then went into kitchen and stayed there while my dinner was made to make sure it was ok. She also gave me an allergy list of all the items on the menu, that I could use while ordering. I’ll definitely be back again

Chain place so don’t expect much. No separate menu but they have a list of what allergies is in what item. All items are marked as cross contact potential because of no dedicated kitchen space. Mostly breakfast items (eggs and meats).

What I had was good. No symptoms.

I was unable to order at this establishment. I expected that the choices would be limited, but hoped for chicken, potato’s, and a vegetable. Unfortunately that was not an option. The manager explained how he doesn’t know what gluten is and it is everywhere and they cannot take precautions because they were busy. We left.

I was curious about this place and heard about other people having good experiences at other locations. When I called this one they put me on hold 3 different times to see if they had gluten free items and then when the manager talked to me she had no idea what gluten was. DO NOT RISK!!

Before my GF life I tolerated Cracker Barrel because they had vegetables, even though they're cooked to death. But now? There's literally nothing I can safely eat. Even when I tell the server I'm GF, and to PLEASE alert the kitchen, my food has come out breaded, or with biscuits, etc. I can't trust them any longer.

I ordered the rainbow trout, turnip greens, and side salad. They cleaned the grill before cooking my trout. Unfortunately, they lost the only gluten free menu they have, however I managed by asking a knowledgeable waitress.

My young daughter has celiac. The menu does not have a lot of options, but the new allergy menu helped me know what had gluten. The manager came out to help us and actually prepared the breakfast herself and brought it out separately. They were so accommodating and careful. I would give 4 stars for the lack of options but I give 5 stars for customer service.

The waiter was very knowledgeable and got a manager to come out and show me the ingredients in the grilled chicken strips marinade. He also brought us an allergen menu so we could see what in their menu contained gluten. He then said they would cook them on foil to avoid contamination. My son got corn for his side. We also got bacon and eggs for him. We will definitely go back.

The staff offered a gluten free menu, carried my daughters food out on a separate tray from our food. The gluten free options are very limited, eggs, yogurt, spiced apples, fresh fruit, and a few other things for the breakfast menu. They don’t have gluten free bread items though. Luckily my daughter wasn’t picky. I was just happy with the care they took with my daughter food and providing us with a menu made it easier.

While I appreciate that they offered me a gluten free menu, the options were only side dishes. They warned that anything else on the menu would be cross contaminated because they share a griddle with pancakes. Wish they had at least a dedicated portion of a griddle!

I told them I have a severe gluten allergy. My salad came out loaded with croutons. I sent it back & explained cross contamination.They brought back the same salad.I was eating it & discovered croutons in the bottom of the salad.Cracker Barrel normally is a safe option while traveling for my job, but I will not be back to this location.

The staff was great but a lot of Bloggers list tons of “gluten free menu options”. Unfortunately they items are naturally gluten free but they aren’t prepared in a way that prevents cross contamination. I ended up eating two eggs and a yogurt. Not really worth the stop. Unfortunately I already know a few of the local restaurants from stopping thru and they are even worse for gluten free. At least they are honest about not being able to prepare food safely. 5 stars for the staff 1 Star for the menu options.

Super nice staff, but I have to agree with the other reviews. The gluten free menu was so limited-eggs, fruit, and that’s about it. Didn’t make a lot of sense since there was more on the dairy free menu than the gluten free. I tried the ham steak, baked potato, and baby carrots. That was last night. Today my stomach is giving me trouble and feels bloated. I guess they do cook everything together.

2019- this review has nothing to do with the staff. They were great!! BUT I’m very disappointed in Cracker-barrel. One reason is they have no clue how to put together their new allergy menu. I think it’s been done by a person who has no idea or interest in the subject matter. I come here with my husband who enjoys the turkey and dressing which he says is very good but me...I love the vegetables but I have to make sure I don’t mess up all my hard work healing from years of torcher. Look at the allergy menu! You need to go back to the drawing board.

2018The veggies here are very delicious!

The restaurant had an allergen menu which I was excited about, until I looked at it and realized there aren’t many options. You can basically just have eggs or yogurt for breakfast. The breakfast meats are gluten free but they are cooked on a shared grill so not safe for celiacs. The staff working that day was not familiar with celiac disease or cross contamination.
