It was the usual Cracker barrel. The service was good. The food came fast and it was good. The waitress was friendly and quick to correct a mistake they made on my food. I would go again cause it is Cracker Barrel.

The food at Cracker Barrel is always consistent. We only get there once a year. It is always worth the wait. Fried okra is something you can't get everywhere .

If you want to walk around the gift shop then this is your place. If you want good food or service go elsewhere. If you have to have Cracker Barrel there is another one 30 miles east. Service is slow. Food was horrible had chicken that was burnt but yet only warm, carrots that were cold and green beans that... More

The nice thing about chain restaurants is you know what to expect even when you're traveling far from home. This Cracker Barrel is exactly what you would expect of any Cracker Barrel. They have good food and good service at a great price. We got there late in the evening so we didn't have to wait. It's hard to find... More

My family ate breakfast and dinner here the same day. The food was great as always. We had a large party of 12 and they were able to sit us quickly even on a holiday weekend. The food was fresh and hot.

Ate here with family for breakfast and the service was crummy just as much as the over cooked good was. Not thrilled and the waitress we had, was not great at all. When we wanted to talk to a supervisor he or she was no where to be found. Never again!!

This was my husband and my first time here. This was a store/eatery combined, so after we ate, we walked in the store. The breakfast was delicious. We're from Jersey, so we're not used to grits and biscuits but it was good. Good service.

I've been to this Crackerbarrel in the past, and the staff and regular amenities were all as expected. However, as another reviewer noted, the portions are significantly smaller than I have recently experienced at Crackerbarrels in other locations. On top of that, we were there around 8 in the evening, and the food was pretty overcooked, as my traveling companion... More

We have visited several Cracker Barrel restaurants in the past, including this one in Harrisburg. I am disappointed to say that the portions have become progressively smaller. I was shocked that our last meal literally looked like a kids meal -- it was even served on a tiny plate that looked like a child's plate. When we returned home from... More

I have never been to a Cracker Barrel that I didn't like. The server we had was great she had 4 stars which is the most you can achieve. I had the haddock and my husband the roast beef, everything was hot and very good. One of the best parts of Cracker Barrel is shopping afterwards, they have good assortment... More
