On a Sunday, girl friend and I wanted a decent breakfast. Services was poor given that some of the staff didn't show up. (You have to admire American workers). Our waitress left our food under a heat lamp for at least 25 minutes before she had the time to serve us. Had to fetch my own coffee and quite honestly... More

Consistently good food & great prices at Cracker Barrel no matter where you travel in the U.S. Even though there may be waiting lines on weekends, it's always fun to pass the time by shopping in the store, especially with the old time soda & candies.

There are so many other great choices, that wasn't really a problem. My husband had the cod fish fry and said it was excellent. Love their choice of sides. Service... More

Cracker barrell is my favorite all time breakfast! The old timers with hashbrown casserole and bacon, yum!! The place is always clean and nice. I thought it was time for a review. I always love the fire. I generally don't shop there but they do have some unique items for the holidays. Always great service!

Stopped here en-route and had brunch... Which was huge! I got french toast (4 slices!!) with eggs and sausage - pretty filling stuff and a good hearty start to our journey.

Wow this was a really nice and clean restaurant. I really enjoyed shopping while waiting to be seated. The staff were very friendly. The food came out nice and hot and the dessert we had was great. Fruit cobbler
