Party of two this visit. First off, extended wait time to be seated. Hostess, attempts to seat us in a poorly illuminated area, we declined, picked our own seating.One steak ordered medium/well, it arrives well done, with tough leather like texture.Second steak ordered, medium, it arrives well done, with tough leather like texture, it was refused by customer.Repeat attempt, steak arrives medium/rare! Lots and lots of frothy blood, with texture of steak spongy like.Disgruntled now, push steak to the side and ask for billable discount. Hostess was most reluctant to honor discount requests, but in the end she conceded.We tipped at the table, yet at checkout, the associate pushed receipt to our party, asking us to leave a tip.Crackle Barrel, this is our second visit in many months to your Cape Girardeau facility. Hopefully if we visit, it will be a better experience.
