Breakfast with Family

Six of us had breakfast there this morning.. The food was not up to the standards we have come to expect from Cracker Barrel and the service was much slower than normal. My eggs over-medium came out with one over light and one well done. My granddaughter had to ask for water 3 times.

Getting a $10 meal is a rarity, so I am thankful. Our waitress was prompt, the dining area was clean. It's great to have veggies, like Momma did it. I'm not "big on" their throwing all of the food on the plate, with the meat & veggie grease, along with natural juices, all mixed together. I got a 2nd plate... More

A few years ago I quit eating at cracker barrels because of the price versus the amount of food but had started going back 2 or 3 years ago and things seemed better. A friend and I went for breakfast recently and while the food taste good the egg was small and the gravy was in a tiny bowl. I... More

This was a very busy restaurant and the tables were so close together that it was hard to be seated and the table behind us had their chairs up against ours. Not a good experience.

Hostess very cold and unwelcoming. Waiter disorganized--did not serve our meal (two other staff members served). Waiter was busy bussing other tables and did not check back for our needs. While bussing table next to us he dropped a soda bottle, which hit my leg before shattering at my feet. Our food was barely warm, fries not heated through. When... More

My husband and I were staying at a Hotel across the street and decided to order food to go after being on the road for 8 hours. I called the order in at 5:11pm and was told it would be ready in 10 to 15 minutes. I waited until 5:25pm and went there to pick up our order. The gift... More

So thankful for a quick meal, adjacent to our hotel, no surprises and a decent meal no matter where we go. We really appreciate the quality control Cracker Barrel offers.

We were seated among several small tables where the people were not yet served. Not a good sign. Granny & PaPa walked out dragging a little boy & saying 'C'mon, lets go.' Another bad sign. Elder server brings a tray of food to the empty table. More bad sign. We've not been approached to order beverage, a couple is seated... More
