We enjoyed a hearty brunch. Some of us ordered pancakes and eggs. Others ordered steak tips and biscuits. Our food was tasty and our waitress, Mona, was terrific.

Never had a bad meal at a Cracker Barrel, and this location didn't disappoint. Our server was very friendly and funny. He caught on to our love of humor immediately and laughed along with us. Good portions; good prices.

We went here for breakfast and dinner with two different groups. Breakfast was good and the service was good with two waiters since we had a large group. Standard fare plus corn muffins. Dinner was different as they were out of three different entrees and a dessert and we were early so we were disappointed. Service again was good with... More

I've never had a bad experience at any Cracker Barrel, Madison's restaurant is just fine and is everything we've come to expect. I've eaten here dozens of times over the years, as it is a safe stop for lunch while traveling to see family. I've also bought several birthday, Easter and Christmas presents in the store. Adequate parking and tons... More

Food has always been consistent and good! The store has some cool "old time" things to look at. Brings back good memories of family vacations.

I ordered an omlette... it was perhaps one of the worst I have had on the road. The toast was tasteless white bread. I would not go back except for the kiddies--and they loved the place. Service was good.

Traveling on Thanksgiving Day, we arrived later than expected in Madison and were afraid we wouldn't be able to find anything to eat. Thank heavens for Cracker Barrel - not only were they open & serving until 10:00 p.m., they had a special Thanksgiving Dinner! We each got one to go and took it back to our hotel to enjoy... More
