A little off...

Cracker Barrel is our "go to" restaurant on Sunday night, partly because there aren't too many options in the area! Something was "off" this night... there seemed to be a management issue that was causing slow and somewhat inattentive service--not horrible, but not up to the usual Cracker Barrell... read more

We frequent Cracker Barrel on road trips and we stop in Lancaster on business trips. Our visit yesterday was what we expected: Good Food, Good Service, Clean Rest rooms, and a Good Value. We have had disappointments over the years at other CB locations (Two at a particular CB along I-10 in Louisiana) but CB apologizes and corrects those problems... More

We eat at Cracker Barrel every time we visit Lancaster. The food is fabulous and the prices are "family friendly."

Super slow today. Took 10 minutes to see a waitress and then we ordered. That was over 30 minutes ago. Not sure how long it takes to scramble eggs but this is crazy!

The waitress was awesome and the food "chicken and dumplings" are the best you will find. Delicious and wonderful.

If you're looking for some good down home stick to your ribs meals then Cracker Barrel is the place to go for breakfast, lunch or dinner, I'm especially fond of their breakfast selections, country fried steak and fried apples. Good food and friendly staff.

I know this sometimes gives you the feeling of a food factory, but you get good food for an affordable price in any Cracker Barrel. Service was very good, the food is good and you get plenty of it. Always worth a stop during a road trip.
