Worst Breakfast Ever

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... read 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

I ordered chicken and dumplings and my husband chicken fried steak and we waited while 2 tables that came after us were served first. My husband asked the server what was taking so long and her reply was that they ran out of dumplings and had to make more. She never once asked me if I would like to order... More

Passing through Springfield on a recent Saturday, we stopped at this CB for lunch. We've been here several times over the years, and the food has always been good. My wife had the chef salad, a reliable standby we've both had a number of times. She asked for two different dressings, no problem. And she ate all but a few... More

I ordered an egg sandwich with eggs over easy, (expecting fully cooked whites and runny yellows). I should have expected something when the waitress asked if I was sure and then rolled her eyes and walked away. 30 minutes later when the food got there (mind you waitress never refilled our drinks in the mean time) the whites of the...
