Good food, but skip the rolls/cornbread

Our family had an after-Christmas get together here and the food was just great. I would advise skipping the rolls and cornbread, as they are both very dry and not good at all, even with butter and honey. The service was excellent. Two waitresses divided and conquered the eight of us and the... read more

I love Cracker barrel, but this one experience was not good. my food was cold, took way longer than they said. Did not include all my condiments I asked for, but they assured me it would so I did not check the bag.

We have avoided eating here because the service in the kitchen is too slow. They have a large turnover of servers. The food isn't the best in town. We enjoy the prices of the Kids for all ages menu when we visit there.

My retirement group meets here every month for breakfast! We love the servers...really the whole staff is so welcoming and friendly. The food is served quickly and we love that there are substitutions made, especially for myself, a gluten-free person. We always have to browse the gift shop area on our way in and out of the restaurant, too!

This was our first experience with Cracker Barrel, and we are surprised with Kathy M's comments, as they do not reflect our experience in any way as far as the service and quality of food was concerned. I had the mashed potatoes and gravy, as it is one of my favorites, and it was as good as any I have... More

The restaurant has a great selection. The food was hot and delicious. The store was beautiful but the aisles are always too small to walk through. My husband is in a wheelchair which is very difficult to go through aisles, especially when there were breakables at a low level.....just waiting to get knocked down.

We had been on the road awhile and were hungry so we stopped in. I hadn't been to a Cracker Barrel in years but my memories were positive. Both of us had meals that struggled for mediocrity, at best. I had chicken strips, grilled. They were very poor quality, with a high percentage of added water. The mashed potatoes were... More

Cracker Barrel has always been a good experience for us as we don't have these restaurants where we live. The restaurant in Lansing had very good food and service and we enjoyed browsing in the shop. This is a reliable restaurant with great prices.

We visit Cracker Barrel for breakfast often. Lots of inexpensive options that are good and filling. We decided to try it out for dinner for the first time. You can get a down home country style dinner for less than $10. Lots of options. One recommendation - if you order chicken and dumplings be sure to tell them you want... More
