Stopped here for breakfast after fishing in Erie all week. This was a fast friendly experience. It's a cracker barrel, warm friendly and decent food. If you like this chain, this is a good bet.

Amazing dinning experience over thanksgiving day. We had dinner there. All the restaurants around our hotel were closed. We were thankful to have Cracker Barrel open. The service is great as always. We love the store and all the decorations. The fire was crackling and gave us a warm cozy feel. They had thanksgiving meal with turkey with gravy ,... More

Our family has happily eaten at Cracker Barrel for 23 years. We have spent a lot in their store too!! Well the once happy eatery changed all of their salads. Very drastic changes too. The waitress did not even offer to make a house salad into a grilled chicken salad for me. Then we asked the manager to help us... More

I ate breakfast here with a group of my family members that we were visiting on vacation recently. The service was really good, the food was quite good too with the exception of the biscuits which are normally great at Cracker Barrel, but on this visit they were just flat and dense, not light and fluffy. All of our eggs... More

What can you say: it's a Cracker Barrel. I mean, they're all the same, down to the same layout and fun store and rocking chairs. The food is ok, but I'm pretty sure there are no awards won here. Servers were friendly, but again, no awards being won.

My daughter and I really enjoyed the freshly made lunches. I had a salad and baked potato. My daughter had a salad and another item. The hot corn bread muffins and rolls were so tasty! We loved our lunch and the price was very reasonable.

First we waited almost 15 minuets to get waited on, Then our food made my wife have an upset stomach for 4 hours. Won't be back. This used to be my wife's favorite restaurant. Side note, the couple beside us flipped out on the staff her food was so bad.

The hostess begins the seating process by singing the praises of the campfire chicken while pointing to a poster sized picture of chicken that could not look any better. At $9.99 it seems like a good bargain until the dish arrives in a huge foil wrap with paper under it. It also comes so quickly that they must have them... More
