Is there a bad Cracker Barrel. This has great service, quick, and moves a lot of people in a short amount of time. It could be busy but it doesn't take long to get seated and ordered. The food is time tested and so many things you could order. Very good for senior citizens and children.

We always look forward to a meal at the Cracker Barrel. Visited on a Saturday night and waited over an hour for a table. Once our food finally arrived the waitress accidentally spilled a drink in my plate before I had a bite. By the time my food was replaced and brought out every one else had eaten.

Eggs were done perfectly. The toast is wonderful. The turkey sausage is fabulous. The service was good. The grits were great. The hasbrown casserole was delectable. Even the porkchop was tender today! (chop is tough at times). We enjoy coming here and today was our best experience yet! By the way, dont go here if you want a quiet time.... More

Great service, great food, awesome gift shop! I love the candy sticks that u can get, 7 for $1.00. They do have sales in the gift shop from time to time. Their food is excellent. Salad is huge and comes with a decent chunk of cheese on the side. I recommend their lemonade, frozen mug of course. Mashed potatoes are... More

My friend and I participated in a Randonneuring event which lasted all day in Edwardsville. Upon finishing the bicycle ride, Cracker Barrel was the only thing that came into mind. It was the first time I have been to the Springfield location though I have eaten at other locations before. The service was excellent at peak dinner hours as we... More

On a recent business trip I stayed a the Baymont Inn right next door to this restaurant. One of the reasons I selected the Baymont was due to the close proximity to one of my favorite places to dine while travelling. I have tried many of their dishes and have found comfort in their menu selections. This was no exception,... More

Things started off with the waitress asking us if we wanted to try tonight's special which was Chicken with mushroom sauce and two sides. "We just sat down." was our response. "Can you give me a minute?" was another response from a nearby table. So whoever issued the edict to push the special needs to try decaf. So, sure the... More

The food is consistent in portion size. The prices are fair and the service is good. Fun atmosphere, but very busy on the weekends!
