Love Cracker Barrel breakfasts! We are not a huge fan of how noisy the restaurant is...but the great food keeps us coming back. Love the comfort food, too, always well prepared and yummy...ham and beans and cornbread, meatloaf, etc.

Although Cracker Barrel menus are pretty much the same at all locations, the Columbia MO location presents the food quickly and with a friendly wait staff.

Stopped for early breakfast, fire was going strong. Sweet tea and coffee great. Clean, well maintained. Bathrooms clean, but cold brr. We all had egg dishes with pancakes or French toast. Food was well cooked and served at right temperature.

Clean, family-friendly, the steaks were cooked to our request and weren't overloaded with pepper and other spices like some steakhouses. Couldn't fit in dessert. Anywhere.

To me, this and other Cracker Barrels have declined in the recent past. All of the food at every Cracker Barrel I have tasted within the last 18 months has tasted canned, frozen and/or mass produced. Has not tasted fresh and home made like it used to. I used to really like this place and don't understand what has happened... More

I always enjoy the comfort food at Cracker Barrel. I would ask, when did they start charging $2.50 for a simple cup of coffee? I guess that's how they keep the food prices lower. Convenient to hotel, clean, friendly, quick service.

I love Cracker Barrel. A good breakfast. Hreat family memories come from there though. Cracker Barrel is where my Grandfather liked to take me and my family. The staff is always friendly. Phenomenal.

We started our Christmas Eve shopping morning at 8 am here. We wanted a hot & hearty breakfast to get us through the day. We requested a table by the fireplace and it made the morning that much better. Christa got our coffee order out quickly. Our breakfast food order was out in about ten minutes and it was very...
