Average Cracker Barrell

I eat at this chain a fair amount when traveling because I know I can get a good meal at a fair price. Nothing lacking here. a few bumps in one order, but resovled quickly.

It's a treat for us to get to Cracker Barrel, as the closest one to us is 500 miles away. We looked forward to this visit especially. As always, the staff was quite friendly, and quickly seated us. Drinks and food came out quickly. I had the Thursday night special, which was turkey with gravy. The turkey, gravy, and stuffing... More

Cracker Barrel always had a very wide selection of well prepared food. I try to always eat healthy and they have those options along with artery cloggers!

Good breakfast basics--eggs, bacon, biscuits, pancakes. 4 and 1.5 yr old granddaughters are treated very well.

Went to have a quick lunch as we were on a tight schedule, as usually service if fast. We arrived at 11:55 and ordered two lunch specials, and didn't get served until 12:25. Almost got up to leave as we really didn't have time to wait much longer. Food was adequate, but obviously had sat out, as fish and sides... More

We are off the low cal menu.Most items including side were around 580 calories. While this may not seem low, the portions where big. The trout was flavorful and the sides were good. Service, as always friendly.
