In kind of early and it took a little longer to get seated just because the staff was on the smallish size. Order taken quickly and delivered to the table quickly. The eggs were just a tad overcooked for medium poached but All the food was very tasty. Paying took a little longer as well not because of crowds but... More

We always know that we can get good food at Cracker Barrel. We love breakfast the most. Because the hotel we stayed at let their employees eat the breakfast they had out for guests we were unable to eat there so we came to Cracker Barrel. Good was great, service was ok and price is always good.

Kids are out and about, and wife and I didn't want to cook. Gave this place a chance, very glad we did. Immediate seating, and great waitstaff. I had the open face roast beef sandwich, the wife had chicken livers. Both meals were like good home cooking. Thought my mother was in the back preparing our meal. Darn glad we... More

Service here can be slow but is usually friendly. The food is consistently good. They seriously need to dust the things hanging on the walls next to the tables. The dust bunnies are taking over.

Love that you can get breakfast no matter what time of day. Fun to browse the store if you have to wait for a table. Note, they do not serve alcohol if you are there for dinner.

Nothing can beat the solid reliability and utter predictable meals that Cracker Barrel presents up and down, east and west, across the USA. I'm not over the moon about grits and I have really tried to like their gravy but those in afraid to say are my rejects. Staff are well trained to a higher corporate standard and do and... More

We eat at Cracker Barrel because we like the choices on their menus and the fact you can order from the breakfast menu at anytime of the day. The food is always delicious. They have down to earth, home cooked meals, with many choices for your side dishes.

The waitress and staff were so friendly is was like being served in their home. The pancakes were some of the best Ive eaten and the stuffed french toast was awesome. They serve warm small bottles of syrup which is very nice. The gift shop has some old vintage items. Great place.

The food is good, and the service was great. All the employees were very nice. I love that you can get breakfast all day. I also enjoy walking through the shop afterwards. They have some nice things that you can't find elsewhere.

Why would anyone want to review a Cracker Barrel.? They are all almost identical. If you have been to one you have been to them all. So what is there new to say? Well, I have talked to friends who never go there. They have some misconception of what it is. True, there is a bit too much fat and... More
