good pancakes

Came here for breakfast on the way to Chicago. I had the blueberry pancakes and pork sausage. One thing I like about this place is they give you real maple syrup and also a bottle of blueberry syrup. Everything was great and service was the best

The service was very slow. Orders in our party were incorrect. The hickory-smoked country ham I had was the worst I've ever had, overcooked, dried out and so salty as to be nearly inedible. Others in our group said that their roast beef dishes tasted "off". We finally got bread at the END of the meal. Really awful and I... More

Cracker barrel is one of my family's favorite chain breakfast options. The decor is relaxing, the servers are great (most of the time) and as soon as drinks are ordered, a plate of biscuits can be brought out if requested. Mama's pancake or french toast breakfasts are excellent and my father raves about the chicken fried steak. The old-fashioned store... More

We went for breakfast this morning and disappointment set in. We have always enjoyed whatever we have had to eat there. The service, the decor, all great. But this morning, I think the cook was sleeping. I ordered a fruit side. For $2.69 I got 2 pieces of pineapple - bitesized, 6 blueberries, and two pieces of strawberries. What a... More

As you entered the store, it was filled with things to purchase. We were greeted by friendly staff. We did not have to wait a long time for seating. The bathroom was dirty. The food was good and dining area was clean. The waitress was rude.

An all American restaurant., went there for dinner. Ordered the Cracker Barrel sampler, meatloaf, ham, chicken and dumplings. Portions are decent size, a slice of meatloaf, a slice of ham, one piece of chicken and a few pieces of dumplings. The dumplings were a little doughy. Otherwise the rest were ok. It came with 3 sides and corn muffin. In... More
