Great good & fast service! Chicken & dumplings and hash brown casserole are the best!! The place is very clean. I love the shop too! It is a very family friendly down home country restaurant.

Stopped a cracker barrel after shopping. Enjoyed the biscuits, although wish we got them before the meal arrived and the meal was great as well, had more than enough to eat. Will go again!

Stopped for a quick breakfast. Ordered the breakfast sandwich with hash brown casserole and the fresh start sampler. Mayo usually comes on the sandwich, might of had a half teaspoon. The casserole was on the dry side, biscuits were hard and the blueberry muffin was dry. Felt the items were old and yesterday's goods. Not the Cracker Barrel Standard. The... More

A nice place with a gift shop that it was not easy to walk out of without buying something (I had to though...) - the food was tasty and the waiter helpful

After spending the day at Maine Medical Center when my mom had surgery, I had a delicious breakfast meal that evening before staying at the Doubletree Hilton Hotel in South Portland. The service was friendly, fast, and hit the spot after a somewhat stressful day.

Cracker Barrel is my go-to restaurant in South Portland, ME. I like breakfast any time of day. Cracker Barrel serves breakfast all day. The wait staff is courteous and pleasant. I love Cracker Barrel's cornbread and biscuits. The menu has good variety. Drinks have bottomless refills. I like browsing their unique gift shop where they sell old-fashioned candy. Even when...

Our last visit to this restaurant was disappointing but we decided to give it another try ... mostly because of the merchandise at their General Store :). We were pleasantly surprised by the excellent service and the tasty meal we received today. The portions were huge, and the food very flavourful. Our wait time was minimal and we were in... More

Our favorite breakfast place in South Portland. Love the consistency. The great selection in the store is worth the time to stop and look. Was very disappointed to see that the maple syrup is now 55% maple syrup and 45% cane syrup.

Whenever making a trip to the Portland area, we love stopping here. Such a great country, homey atmosphere, and the food is as good as a meal in an old fashioned farmhouse. The food is always cooked to perfection, wholesome, and I love the variety of things one can get here that is not available at many other restaurants, such... More

The food is just average typical franchise food. The country store part is amazing. I love their gifts and have bought many there!! I would recommend it for a breakfast and shopping trip!
