Textures? Skeu? What wormhole did I fall into?
It's almost like the team actually wanted the design to support the brand. I don't know how Dribbble is gonna take this.
Knowing the faithfulness of those comments I think Dribbble would say something along the lines of "wow looks great!"
skewer me at the stake of all things hip design, but I think this is a fantastic execution of bringing an existing physical experience into the digital format. well done team!
Seeing a lot of this style in the restaurant space lately. Outback.com comes to mind as well. It does a good job of mimicking the restaurant interior I assume (haven't been one in a long time), while surfacing the important product info and photos. Good work team!
I really don't know how these places manage to clean and dust all of these hundreds of rustic elements on display at their restaurants. Oh wait, they don't.
Outback actually has a good website though (no offense Cracker Barrell, I love your pancakes)
It's not terrible, but it's not great either.
It feels like my eyes are constantly working to find a place to focus on, so many elements competing for attention.
Also there seem to be a bunch of minor issues, like the search icon is half covered by the "find a cracker barrel" in my browser window's current size.
Their old design looked like it was a Flash website from 2002... this redesign is 10x better.
