My boyfriend and I ate here while on our weekend getaway. My boyfriend loves Cracker Barrel and I had never ate at one before so I figured I would try it. I absolutely love this place now. The waitress was quiet at first but opened up after awhile. The food came out fast and was nice and hot. The gift... More

Cracker Barrel in Plainfield will be part of the memory of when my wife met my parents, and it will be a good part. The service was professional and helpful"finding a menu in Spanish" and the food did not disappoint. The price was covered by parents so judging from other times visiting a medium range place with meals starting under... More

Seating was quick and the was the only thing that was quick. We noticed that the parking lot was not full by any means as it usually is at 5:45 pm. Once we were seated & had ordered the food took an awfully long time to arrive. Hash browns ordered with meal came after 20 minutes and having asked the... More

It was very busy, so we waited a bit before being seated. Our waiter was great but possibly new. At least 10 items or more were left off our orders (party of 5) but the waiter kept going back to the kitchen to bring the missing food. He was really great about refilling drinks too. Even though we had some... More

We figured we would check the Cracker Barrel out tonight. The service was super good. The food was great too. I wish we had this restaurant in Western Washington.

Arrived at 5:30 on a Thursday evening, no waiting for a table. Friendly server, quick service and dumplings were "yummy" as usual. Veggie soup was excellent.

Cracker Barrel can usually be counted on for very ordinary but passable food. When you choose to eat lunch or dinner here, you can expect to get some reheated, leftover food. But some of the dishes on our late afternoon lunch were way past acceptable; i.e., green beans with a tinny, almost spoiled flavor and cold, lumpy, gray mashed potatoes... More
