As always good food, reasonably priced, good service you know what to expect. Not much to say, When out of New York City I cheat and have breakfast at one of these establishments.

Caters mostly to toursts and doesnt seem to care if you never come back. Hostesses seem put out for having to grt high chair and walk as if it is the heaviest thing they ever carried. They also dont know how to use the new computerized seating system. Managment stand around bsing and wait staff has no idea who ordered... More

We love Cracker Barrel. When we travel. The food quality is the same all across America. Same as the service. They are one class act that's hard to follow.

My wife and I go here about once a month, I love their meatloaf dinner. The food is awesome and the prices are reasonable, plus they have a cool little gift shop/candy store in the front.

We came in on a busy Sunday for breakfast. There was no person at the entrance checking people in as Cracker Barrels always does at busy times. We waited nearly 15 minutes to get checked in at the main station. It was painful and frustrating because there's no room for such a line there. Guests and employees alike had to... More

We visit Lancaster Pa multiple times each year. With all the choices available why Cracker Barrel? Because food quality is one of the best. Location and service are too. Amish restaurants are near by too, but not as convenient depending on time and goals for the day.

Even though a lot of people love Cracker Barrel I fail to see the "draw". The food is typical of chain restaurants, full of unwanted and unnecessary calories and not much to choose from if you want a lower-calorie meal. Those of us with IBS or other digestive disorders are out of luck with chains anyway. This would not have... More

We have eaten here several times and have never received bad service or food! The restaurant is clean and we love looking through the store if there is a wait. If there isn't a wait, we shop afterward. I highly recommend it.
