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

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

The food is good. Food at any Cracker Barrel is good. You get what you expect from this wonderful franchise. Great Breakfast, many sites to visit countrywide - they even offer a free map to make sure you can find them along your travels.

This was part of a family outing. Lunch was delicious, the waitress was excellent, & the environment was warm! Browsing the gift shop, with post holiday sales, was also fun! Would definitely recommend taking the time to come over from the mall for a meal, if you are in Gurnee to shop.

Wished they would have cleaned up especially under and around our table before seating us at it. I wonder how often the little peg games are cleaned? Ours had food all encrusted in it. With the dirty floors and such -gave me a ish vibe for the the whole meal. Which our meal was so so. My husband was disappointed... More

We went there for a late lunch. The hostess was so friendly. The waitress was pleasant and gave us good service. The food was very good. The portions were good. Sometimes when we eat at Cracker Barrel restaurants we do not get much food. The portions are very skimpy. We leave the restaurant still hungry. Don't get me wrong I... More
