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)

The family and I stopped here on a road trip. The staff was friendly and the food was good. The price was right for us as well! We all enjoyed our meal!

The food took forever to arrive and was cold. You are better off eating at a fast food restaurant or Millers.We won't return.

I have been to Cracker Barrell in Lancaster many times and have never been disappointed. The old fashioned decor is wonderful, so much to look at while you dine, especially the fireplace. It smells marvelous in the winter. The staff is efficient and friendly. The food is delicious, I have never ordered anything that wasn't great. I especially love the... More

We always visit Cracker Barrel and have ate at this one in the past. The food was fine (once we got it, only part of it), however the service here was not the greatest. We ordered fairly simple menu items, time goes by and about 25 minutes later our Waitress comes over and says that the kitchen just informed her... More

My husband and I love Cracker Barrel and its service. Unfortunately, during our 2 visits to Cracker Barrel we had poor service when we ordered desserts to go on two separate nights. The food was yummy as always. On both visits, they kept forgetting our order and we had to wait 20-30 minutes for our dessert. We will still come... More
