I love Cracker Barrell Gift Shops. Food was just average. Staff in restaurant seemed overwhelmed. Restaurant was clean and wait staff was very friendly

We love Cracker Barrel but yesterday it was dreadful. They don't have enough kitchen staff. We ordered 2 soups to start. The main course came. We asked where the soup was and she fetched one which was cold. My sons main course was missing a side. My husbands was also missing a side. My side never came and the server... More

We had breakfast on a Saturday in August and was happy to find that at 8:30 the place was not yet packed out. I had French toast with bacon. Everything was done to perfection. Crispy bacon and all. We always hit up a cracker barrel or two when we travel. I always know I will have a terrific meal

The food is so delicious at Cracker Barrel. We had breakfast and boy, did we get tons of food! You could eat breakfast here and be well satisfied until dinner time. The way they serve the food is special too, just as if you were at a bed and breakfast!

We had an excellent server. Food was great. We were a large party of 11. So there was some extra work. Server was more than happy to get anything extra we needed.

Sadly our last meal, but what a meal to go out on. Was actually Brunch time, but all decided on the fabulous breakfasts that Cracker Barrel are famous for. I tried so hard to stay with the healthy option but just had to have the pancakes with blueberries. Four of us all had different and all thoroughly enjoyed our meals.... More

The entire family loves the food. The food is delicious, and the menu has more than enough choices and options. There are usually small board games at each table to kill some time while waiting for the food to arrive - though the food is always ready very quickly.

Service was terrible at first. Like so many other places...sooo understaffed for a Saturday noon! Mike apologized profusely and turned a frustrating meal into a great ending. Thank you Mike!

I have been to dozens of different Cracker Barrels around the country and this one was just not as good as my usual experience. The staff and everything was good and no complaints about anything except the food was just mediocre. Usually we love the Cheesy hash but they were pretty weak and not up to expected Cracker Barrel standards.... More

My husband, our oldest granddaughter, and I each had a different meal. All of us were very pleased with our meal. The waitress was cordial and came around often to see if we needed anything. One time she came to tell us that she had given the wrong ticket and said she was sorry for the error. Our bill was... More
