I have been to Cracker Barrel's all over the country and this one did not disappoint! The food was good, the service was amazing, and the restaurant was clean. There is really not much else to say but if you are in the area, it is an average restaurant with good food!

This spot holds a tripadvisor ''certificate of excellence", that caught my eye. Really, a chain restaurant! The service is fast and polite. We came here at 3 pm on Thanksgiving Day and the place was packed. We still got seated and served very quickly. We went with the turkey dinner for $13 per person. We were filled, not overfilled when... More

We usually stop at the Cracker Barrel for our meals when travelling long distance. Up until this stop, my previous 3 Cracker Barrel stops were less than satisfactory, but this one more than met my expectations. It was a little tougher than other locations to locate, but not overly so. We were greeted warmly, seated immediately, serviced quickly, friendly and... More

We live in the area and have been to the Cracker Barrel a number of times over the years. Normally, I take my wife and kids and we have a good experience. Not this last time. We had a party of 6 and had to wait about 30 minutes, even though once we were finally seated, there were plenty of... More

Having been here last year we decided since we knew where it was, that we'd go there for dinner again during our visit to Carlisle. And we weren't disappointed. Great service. I ordered the turkey dinner special on the sign in the lobby for $5.99 that came with turkey, dressing, and one side. But when I ordered I was told... More

Mid morning on Monday and restaurant was not very busy. Took about 3 minutes for a waitress to ask for drink order. Order food and drink together and had to sit for 5 minutes waiting on our coffee. Food arrived timely, like 2 minutes after coffee.
