Driving to Minneapolis I was quick to turn into the Cracker barrel. The line was long and would have to wait. Living out of town I needed access to WIFI to use my computer while I ate. The hostess said they do not have any. And I wanted their Rueben sandwich. Nope, I went back down the road to the... More

The Twin Cities used to have a number of Cracker Barrels but the Lakeville one is the last remaining. Breakfast here with my 12 year old reminds me why it has faded. Food was ok - will give a shout out to the bacon...biscuits were decent but the sawmill gravy was obviously made with sawdust. UGH - not a fan.... More

We went to Cracker Barrel twice while in Minneapolis, and it was good both times. I love the huge selection- it makes it easy for everyone to find something they like. The attached store is also a great way to keep busy while waiting for a table. The second time we were there, it took quite a bit longer to... More

We stop at this Cracker Barrel every year on our way to vacation and the way home. Excellent service! This year we did four meals to go. The meals were accurate and tasty!!

Cracker Barrel has always been one of my favorite restaurants since I was a kid. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. The staff were very kind and efficient, and the gift shop is always a plus! If in the area I'd come back again.

I liked so much that I went twice in a weekend of furniture searching. This is like a 5 star Perkins. (Which is down the block)Perfect for families. It's next to an Americinn, like 25 minutes from the mall of America.The food tastes homemade, it will fill you up and the price is totally right. They have little peg board... More

After having been a loyal customer for decades, it will be a while before my wife and I go back if ever. I usually get the Uncle Herschel's breakfast containing grilled catfish. This time the catfish came deep fried. I complained and received grilled catfish as ordered. I didn't receive tarter sauce this time though. I asked the server, Kathy... More

They sat us at a table with 2 other people. OK, there was a few inches between the tables, but I felt like they would become part of our conversation if I said anything, so we ate as quickly as we could and got out of there. The food was fine and the service was fast.

Food and customer service has slipped badly. The food was cold and not what we asked. Waitress was rude and impatient. The manager did nothing to resolve the situation. We will not be going back, to a family favorite that we have been going to for years.

We have family living in southern MN and northern of Minneapolis so it is about over an hour drive to meet in the middle. Cracker Barrel is the stop will always make. Good food that you can count on. The kids like eating there also. We all like looking at the store to see what they have. It is a... More
