Yesterday we traveled to Wrentham to go Apple Picking and stopped for lunch at the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store. There are plenty of handicap parking spaces right up in front of a nice wide wheelchair accessible ramp that leads right up to the entry doors.
The entry doors are not automatic. There is a sign on the door stating that if you require assistance please ask cashier. Above the sign is a box which appeared to look like some sort of bell. However, one of my friends went to push it and it was just a key lock.
I didn’t quite understand how I would get in if my friends weren’t with me to open the door as the hostess station is located all the way across the store near the restaurant and there would be no way for me to notify anyone as there was no bell.
Upon entering we went through a very nice country store selling candy, honey, country gifts, seasonal items and candles etc. The aisles are wide enough for my wheelchair though you would have to go slowly as there are displays throughout the store. Now we had approached the hostess station where we were greeted and seated at a table in the first of three sections in the restaurant. The table heights are perfect for my wheelchair.
The aisles are wide and plenty of space between the tables. Our waitress was friendly, courteous and attentive. If you’re looking for a home made style meal, Cracker Barrel is the place to go. After we ordered our meals, I decided to check out the restroom which is located in the store next to the restaurant. It has a wide handicap stall and meets all the ADA requirements.
I give Cracker Barrel Old Country Store FOUR STARS for wheelchair accessibility. If they were to install automatic doors they would receive the Fifth Star. Overall I enjoyed my experience at this wheelchair accessible restaurant.
