A Good and Filling Meal

The service is very good and the meal is filling and satisfying. The food is always good and is priced fairly. We were there for dinner, but past experience has shown us that any meal at Cracker Barrel will be equally good.

My husband and I ate here during a recent trip to Lancaster. It was his first time there. I have gone to Cracker Barrel many times before. The food was wonderful, the service was fast and the place was very clean. I would definitely recommend eating there.

Cracker Barrel is a fun place. You will have fun looking at the handmade clothing and the old fashion candy. It brings you back to your childhood. The food is good and the staff very friendly. They have wonderful breakfast and lunch. I myself just love their meatloaf. Always comes out hot and fresh. Never dried out. The sides are... More

My family was on vacation and we decided to have dinner at Cracker Barrel. We do not have one of these restaurants near us, so we rarely go there. We wanted to stop at an Amish dinner restaurant, however I am gluten free and my son was hesitant, so we went to Cracker Barrel. The waitress was great at handling... More
