Why do they put everybody's biscuits in the middle of the table!! Everybody that didn't order biscuits and gravy grab them out of the middle of the table!! Three people out of nine ordered biscuits , I didn't want to say hey those are mine, ordered hash brown casserole, must've been running low that day, maybe a good tablespoonful. After... More

We were totally blown away by the service and friendly waitress and staff from the time we walked in until we checked out We really felt they appreciated our business and we loved the food. One of best breakfasts we ever have had and great selection and coffe was awesome.

I was visiting Topeka for a fair in town and our hotel was surrounded by fast food restaurants. We chose Cracker Barrel because the reviews weren't that bad. I had french toast, bacon and eggs, and a side order of grits. The bacon was so brittle, it was almost inedible. It was obviously precooked. French toast had some undercooked portions... More

I have been into virtually hundreds of Crackel Barrels in the entire country. This one has the smallest portions and the food is not even hot. They seem also to have issues with cleanliness. The service used to be bad but it has been improving. Portion sizes are the biggest issue.

On the road. We miss Cracker Barrel in our area of Twin Cities, MN. The only one in our area we know of now is in Lakeville which is too far for frequent dining so it's a "treat" for us when we go to Topeka. We've eating at this one several times. This last time we had new server, Drew,... More

We were in town for business. Went here to eat because it is right next door. We like Cracker Barrel anyway. This one has the best server ever. She was soft spoken and polite. Just right for the morning. I was so glad that the hashbrown casserole was good here. It tasted like it used to. Anymore all the Cracker... More

I love the atmosphere! All the antiques on the wall helps pass the time as meals are prepared. I had the chicken and dumplings which were fantastic! Sides were fired okra and cucumber, onion, tomato salad. Our waitress was very attentive. Would definitely go again.

Always love the food. It is my favorite place in the winter time especially after a long day in the cold. I like the table by the huge fireplace. The wait staff has always been super friendly and personable here. It's always clean and fast service.

Thank deb s
