Quick dinner

Stopped for a quick late dinner. They were out of several items on the menu but it was also late in the evening. The meals came out quick and were hot. Portions were not huge but the price was also no high so overall it was worth what we paid. The only issue was the waitress was not very... read more

I hadn't visited Cracker Barrel in many years due to the distance from my house. My mother and I were very pleased with the food, service and prices. I had the rib eye, cooked just the way I like it, mashed pot., salad and apples for $15.99. Mom had the luncheon special of roasted chicken with stuffing and sweet pot.... More

Stopped at Cracker Barrels before, including this one, and have never been as disappointed as we were last night. We were on our way home from NYC and we stopped here for a quick dinner. Well it was not quick. Though seated right away we waited at least 5 minutes before any one to our table. Then you would have... More

My wife and I ate breakfast here because our hotel was on the same property and they were open. It was New Years day so many other restaurants were closed. Everything was just average or adequate - wait time, price, food, etc. I wouldn't eat here again.

Haven't been to Cracker Barrel in quite a few years, but last time I went, there were certain things they did well - one of which was their buttermilk style biscuits. Not anymore - they were dry and tasteless, as were the corn muffins, which were also quite grainy. The chicken pot pie was average at best - tasty filling,... More

This is a must stop as there are none of these in Canada. We always make it a point to stop, and it gets better each time. You always know what you are getting and the quality is always top notch.

Got off the highway for a quick bite. Friendly staff , good food but no alcohol. Ok I get it. It's a family friendly place. For a hungry family it is an inexpensive place for a quick meal.
