Predictably Good

Do we really need a review of the Cracker Barrel? It's great. It is clean and offers an extensive menu. The tables are too small for all the food they bring to you. The gift shop is always current. If they served liquor, they'd be perfect.

The meal was just OK at this location for this particular meal. As we were traveling through, and it did fill up with probably mostly locals, the so so meal may have been a quirk. The service was good.

I love Cracker Barrel and whether we're at home or traveling go there quite often. Unfortunately this Cracker Barrel location didn't live up to most of our other Cracker Barrel experiences. The positives: food was good quality, restaurant & bathrooms were clean, shopping area had lots of fun and unique things out for Easter. The main negative was the service,... More

Seven of us meet at the Springfield, IL Cracker Barrel the day after Christmas at around 8 a.m. It took 5 minutes to get seated, another 5 for drink orders and then 15 more minutes and a request just to get our orders taken. Everyone ordered items on the menu with no substitutions. It took 20 minutes more to get... More

This is a nice Cracker Barrel, with great wait staff. Food is always "down home" here. They were in need of a latch on the ladies room handicapped stall, though!!

Who doesn't like Cracker Barrel. Food is always hot and tasty and the gift shop always makes my wife happy. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner...you can't go wrong.

Our visit on a Saturday evening was very handy to the Baymont Inn in the same parking lot, but it was not a great meal. The chicken and dumplings were barely edible as was my meat loaf. The pinto beans were excellent as were the cornbread but little else was up to their usual standards. They were incredibly busy and... More

Ended up stopping here unexpectedly due to a storm northeast of here with our 3 kids 12, 4 and 1. The waitress cheered our kids up by adding chocolate chips and chocolate sauce to our daughters pancakes, and brought out a small bowl of chocolate chips before the meal. In the store, they helped us find toys that would keep... More

The Cracker Barrel is right across the street from our hotel, the Baymont Inn and Suites, which made it perfect. We ate there 2 nights and the first night was very busy but we were taken care of very well by our waitress Classity. Our second night was as good. It was slower but Classity still took good care of... More
