The menu is well-known to our family since we live very close to the Lakeville store. Breakfast is always good and a reasonable value. Many of the servers have been there from the beginning and are friendly, outgoing and experienced. Look, if you want a five-star breakfast experience, a place like the Original Pancake House in Edina (owned by the... More

Was there for breakfast and ordered their Sunrise Platter. Most items were good except the Sawmill Gravy. I am somewhat of an expert on gravy, and the Sawmill Gravy is at the bottom of my list. No pepper flavor, no sausage bits or even sausage flavor. It was kinda congealed to start with and got worse as it cooled. If... More

I'm from California and am used to great food and spectacular restaurants. Cracker Barrel does not provide either, HOWEVER I really like Cracker Barrel because they provide good comfort food at great prices. We don't have Cracker Barrel in California so I make a special effort to eat at one whenever I am in Texas or Minnesota visiting family. Sort... More

We stop at Cracker Barrels whenever we travel south from Minnesota. I have to say the Lakeville one is one of the best ones. The food has that south Midwest flavor...and yes calories, that you learn to cherish if you ever lived down south. Nice selection, descent prices, great ambience (love the wood burning large fireplace and gift shop), and... More

This place is so slow that when I got my food part of it was good and part of it was bad but did not want to send it back because I thought it would be breakfast time before I got my food back. The waitress was pleasant I hope she does not have to share her tips with the... More

It amazes me how busy this place is. The food is mediocre at best. Most everything is high fat high calorie. Service is good. Plenty of other choices available in the area.

Having first been introduced to Cracker Barrel when I lived in Florida, I recognized the shape of this building when it was first being built. We have been customers here since their opening. At one time there were three Cracker Barrels around the metro area of Minneapolis/St. Paul, and sadly this is the lone survivor. If corporate ever closes this... More

We have utilized the services of the Cracker Barrel just off of I35 W south in the area of Lakeville, Mn. for over 20 years. The food, service and quality have been excellent. The gift area could be a little larger, but it accommodates the waiting customers and completed customers very well. We look forward to our visits and have... More
