Just ate at Cracker Barrel last week for breakfast. Food was very good and fresh. I enjoyed delicious blueberry pancakes and my husband enjoyed a large breakfast. Service was average but still a nice start to the morning.

We usually pick Cracker Barrel when traveling since the price are good as well as the food and service. We also like to look around the store. We expected this visit to be similar. It was anything but. The food was good as usual but by the time my husband got his A1sauce it was cold. There was a huge... More

Food was good. Service was average. The menu offers a large selection to choose from. There are several selections on the children's menu too. The waitress was very accommodating for our toddler.

It took about five smiling interactions from me before the waitress started to warm up a bit. Food was good as always though.

We ate here the day we arrived in Lancaster since the local restaurants were closed and the food was not up to our standards. The shrimp I had was over cooked and the batter tasted greasy, the hash brown casserole was crusty and dried out. My husband had roast beef and it had a lot of fat in it. The... More

My friend and I stopped at Cracker Barrel for lunch. Thought we wanted beef stew which they did not have on the menu but the waitress suggested beef vegetable soup. Then we thought that we would like chicken pie but that was only served on Thursdays. Then the waitress pointed out on the menu something we would have missed----a sampler.---meat... More

I've been to many Cracker Barrel Restaurants and have NEVER experienced such bad service. A 45 minute wait on a Friday night is not unheard of but when there are open tables and servers standing around it is totally unacceptable! The manager sat us and brought our food, but no one returned to check on us. The food was cold.... More

My family usually loves Cracker Barrel. This was a disappointment. We waited 45 minutes after placing our order for breakfast. Nothing complicated, place wasn't slammed... The waitress came by 10 minutes after we were done to bring a refill. My scrambled eggs with cheese was a thin layer of eggs with a square piece of cheese on top. Food was... More

I loved it! BUT be warned :-) the food is very American. Lot's of wonderful, delicious complex carbohydrates. Good prices, Polite staff (As a New Yorker it seems everybody is polite in Lancaster)
