Cracker Barrel Does Not Disappoint

Wow, I had a hard time reading some of the reviews of my fellow culinary "experts". Upon our visit to this Cracker Barrel, we found the food to be great (two turkey lunch specials) for a mere $5.99. What a deal!! The service provided by Linda K. was also quite efficient. Before my wife could... read more

My boyfriend had the cracker barrel sampler and it was gross. The meatloaf was gross and dry, the mac n cheese was so rubbery, the mashed potatoes were so box made and bland. He said the best things were the country ham and the spoonful of chicken dumplings. I ordered chicken and dumplings, they were good but the mashed potatoes... More

I have avoided this chain for a couple years because it seemed that their eggs were always undercooked and other issues. We decided to give them another try this Fathers Day and should not have. Every item that we ordered for breakfast was cold. They were not that busy and we will not return.

The service was slow and the coffee cold. The food wasn't very flavorful. It was next door to our hotel however.

We went to the Cracker Barrel in Harrisburg, the first night we were there for the CHAP conference. We had a party of thirteen, and the manager was very accommodating. Our waitresses were very attentive, the food was delicious, and we all left feeling full and satisfied. Well done Cracker Barrel!

I can't review the food because we never were given a chance to order anything. Yes, that's right. My son and I were seated but that's it. We sat and waited. I made eye contact with everyone but no one came over so we left. So sad! This is not what Cracker Barrel is known for. We felt like we... More

Went in for a very late lunch. Service was very good and very friendly. The Mac'n Cheese has some small black pieces of something that make it not that appealing and my child said they were a bit crunchy. We tried taking as many out as possible but it's impossible to get them all out. My order came with grits... More

We're never disappointed when we stop at any Cracker Barrel. The service and the food at the Harrisburg love location were excellent as usual. The waitress when out if her way especially when we told her that our son had celiac disease ... Must stop here on our way to Hershey!!!
