Good comfort food

We frequent Cracker Barrel when we're in the area, and they never disappoint. It's basic diner-type food with a southern lean, and especially good breakfasts. Overall, you can't go wrong with anything you order here. My only gripe is that you have to wait in line to pay, which is annoying when you... read more

The wait time is lengthy depending on the time and day of the week but it is worth it. Staff is friendly and can make recommendations if you are unsure of the food choices. The staff makes you feel at home and are always carrying a smile on their face.

Everybody raved about Cracker Barrels however it was not my type of menu. It was nice and different but the menu was not to my liking. It wasn't bad just not my taste.

I did take out as was in the hotel next door and by myself. I have never eaten at a Cracker Barrel and was overwhelmed at the choice of entrees. After 5 minutes I put my order in "to go" and as busy as the restaurant was I was pleasantly surprised, it took only about 15 minutes. I would say... More

The appeal of Cracker Barrel is that we dont have any in NY! Its always a homey atmosphere with normal, simple but good food. We get snacks for the car here, and after eating a meal, continue on our merry way. You can always count on Cracker Barrel for basic home-cooked meals and cleanliness. Nothing gourmet, but good breakfasts, salads... More

it was a great place to go when you don't want to spend a lot and have children with you. The food was just okay, but for the price and with kids it was fine.

Great food, but have stopped going because every time we are there, it seems like a lifetime. Servers do not visit your table often/quickly, and it takes forever for the food to come out.

I've eaten at a Cracker Barrel two or three times over the past several years. The food is unhealthy and doesn't taste that good. I never understand why people rave about it. However, I will say that the staff was very accommodating to our large party of ~30, worked hard to get us seated close together, and assigned 3 different... More
