We normally stop here 3 or 4 times a summer when traveling from the Poconos to the NY Meto area. for breakfast and have never been disappointed. We have found the chain to be consistently good. We normally get a breakfast combo consisting of eggs and pancakes or french toast and there is always more than we can finish. The... More

Got right in,no waiting. But then the wait at the table began. When we finally put our order in it took 35 min to get the food. We then had to wait for the ketchup, white gravy, biscuits, and refills!!! Uughhh A lot of waiting. The foods taste where fresh and good as expected. Just having to wait so long... More

I meet with a group of guys about once a month for breakfast and conversation about events. This place is a favorite of theirs...not me. It's been a while since my last comment about this place. The menu is large, especially for breakfast. You can get more choices than at "Alice's Restaurant". It appears that the pancake/waffle dishes are tasty... More

The wait wasnt too long which I was happy about. I ordered an egg dish for breakfast. It came with biscuits that were suppose to come with butter and jelly according to the menu which of course didnt come out with my food. I had to ask 3 people for butter. In the middle of eating our waitress dropped off... More

I think that all Cracker Barrel restaurants have essentially the same menu selections. While the cuisine is hardly gourmet, I don't think that it's meant to be! There's a good variety from which to choose (there are almost 2 dozen "vegetables and sides") and breakfast can be ordered at any time. On our last visit, my husband had a turkey... More

Down home cooking at an unbelievable value. A must when your in town. Meatloaf was amazing with turnip greens and cornbread. Throw in a cucumber, onion and tomato salad and I was living large.

I've been here before and it was much better on previous visits. We sat there for almost a half hour before anyone came to the table, the place wasn't packed so I don't know what the problem was. The waitress never brought us biscuits so we had to ask for them, not a major thing, but, it gets worse. I... More

There is no place in this country I will go without identifying this restaurant and stopping for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It simply has everything - fresh, tasteful, intelligently sized portions, great and friendly service, an attached store that you will definitely find something that you won't resist purchasing...my trips are not really trips without a stop there!
