We had just finished our tour of Niagra and stopped at the Cracker Barrel for lunch. The restaurant was jam packed but their system of seating people was very efficient. Our waitress was knew the menu and very courteous. I had the chicken noodle soup, grilled trout with brown rice pilaf, mac & cheese and cole slaw. I topped it... More

Don't know what is/has happened with Cracker Barrel, but it just isn't the same. Smaller portions and mediocre service. Food was barely warm. My friend and I were served one biscuit and one corn muffin ... not 2 of each since there was 2 of us. When we requested more, our server did accommodate us.

I love Cracker Barrel. My children think that a trip to the US is not complete without a visit to this restaurant. The food is always delicious, the service is always quick and friendly. However this time I was very disappointed to discover the bathroom that was dirty and smelly. If they clean up, the restaurant will be perfect. There... More

We stopped by the restaurant for breakfast and I ordered the Apple Streusel French toast. It was delicious. I also love the Old Timers Breakfast which includes the hash brown casserole. My friend had the pecan pancakes and they were excellent. I go there a few times a year and I recommend it. I wish the coffee was better but... More

We had a late lunch at the Cracker Barrel and had a positive experience. Our server, Kristen was very good. We had the beef noodle soup, bacon cheeseburger, and the barbeque chicken. Both of us were very pleased with our meals. We will return when we are in the area.

We ate at the Cracker for 2 nights in a row and enjoyed the menu immensely, they offered great tasting food, and reasonable prices, and delivered our order quickly. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable, and offered suggestions, and even allowed us to substitute things on the menu to make our meals even better. Not sure what others are... More

My family and i have never had bad service or food. It's good ole homecooking comfort food, the atmosphere is very homey and the store, i could always find something extra to buy there. We reintroduced my in laws to it and they probably go more often than us now!

Before I became a Chef and I was driving to Florida, I would stop at Cracker Barrel as it was convenient and my friends liked it. Well the food was horrible, poor at best. Tasteless, mushy, overcooked gruel. Please save yourself some money and eat at anyone of the fast food restaurants nearby as they are better and cheaper. Chef... More

Great breakfast. Probably the best sausage gravy and biscuits in the Buffalo area. This is a chain restaurant with a good sized gift shop. They do an excellent job with the nostalgic decor. Breakfast was fabulous. Everything cooked perfectly. We had 5 people in our group. We were able to be seated rather quickly. I am not a coffee drinker... More

You can see the familiar, mile high sign from the thruway. It's just off and on the same street as many restaurants/hotels/shopping centers. I LOVE Cracker Barrel: they always deliver in every respect! Great location, very accommodating (we asked for a window table and they quickly cleared one off), waitresses and hostess are always nice and helpful. Refills on coffee.... More
