Good food

Convenient off of I95. The staff and food were good for a chain restaurant. The service was fast, makes for a quick stop and back on the road again without losing too much travel time.

We've patroned this Cracker Barrel three times in the last several years during our northward travels. Each time we've expected the best, but were delivered the worst, where food was concerned.

After staying away for months, we decided to try it again. It was disastrous! Food still horrible. If you like very little food on your plate and food that is very bad, then this is the place for you. In fact, the day we stopped in it was empty at lunch time. This place used to be busy all the...

I hate this place. The service is awful. The portions are insanely small,.so it's overpriced. The setting is okay, but not worth it

Food and service gets worse every time I go there. Slow service, cold food. Don't ever get fried chicken livers because they are so hard they can hardly be cut. About the only thing that is consistent are pancakes.

It's a Cracker Barrel . Good food. Good prices. Felt more rushed at this one than we usually feel. We try to stop at these because they are so consistent.

I had a business breakfast here. The wait staff were quick and very accommodating to our needs. I would return for any meal.
