Never Sure

My husband loves breakfast for dinner at Cracker Barrel. Unfortunately, no one else orders breakfast and it is always a big unknown when you order there. Service varies from awful to good. Food quality the same. Sometimes you get biscuits that are hard, flat,and dark and sometimes they are ok... read more

I asked for well done scrambled eggs and they were uncooked inside. My pancakes were tough and chewy. My husband had oven baked chicken which was overcooked and terrible. He sent the chicken back and got another which was about the same.

I've always loved this place. No matter which one I go to. You also can't beat the prices. I would suggest to go early in the morning, it's always busy after 10 or so.

I love Cracker Barrel but truly it is hit or miss! The food is always pretty good with a few miss'es here and there when we go. This visit was good but my Red eye gravy didn't come out with rest of the meal, it came about the time I was almost done. my eggs were lukewarm not hot. I... More

Had a very nice experience at this Cracker Barrel location. Seater was pleasant and we got great seats. Service was very nice, friendly, and attentive. Our order was exactly correct, and the food quality was excellent. I look forward to stopping here again on our next trip to NYC!!!

While staying overnight at the La Quinta next door after driving all day, my wife called in a take out order to Cracker Barrel. The person answering was very polite and helpful and advised us that our order would be ready in 15 minutes. I walked over to the restaurant 10 minutes after calling in the order and I was... More

Entering a Cracker Barrel anywhere is quite the feat. There is so much stuff crammed into the store part that it is quite claustrophobic! But once you get through to the eating area you have more breathing room. I have always had good service. If they are very busy, it is sometimes harried, but always pleasant! Service is prompt and...

We can always depend on consistent, wholesome well prepared home style meals at Cracker Barrel. Little in the way of horns and whistles, just good food. One fly in the ointment...their carry out service is poor! Otherwise...spot on!

When you are on the road, and have been driving a while, this is a great place for a break. Typically cozy with a fireplace, the food is good and consistent. Try to go on off hours to avoid the large crowds.

Service is good, food is hot and well-prepared. Country shop is fun to look around. Convenient to exit off of I-95.
