When will Flint and Bridgeport, MI Cracker Barrels start serving alcohol?

  • I spoke with an employee at the Flint location -- they don't have any date or information at this time. A manager I spoke with at the Bridgeport restaurant said they're aware of the possibility, but no specifics at this time.

Will Cracker Barrel have a bar?

  • Soon, you could have a drink with Grandma's Sampler while you play the triangle peg game, but no bars will be built in restaurants -- it's not going to become a 'downhome nightclub.' It sounds like they'll offer plenty of bottled beer, some bottled wines and faux-mimosas -- the real stuff can be bought in 4-packs or 6-packs to go (depending on the item).
