“One of the BEST Cracker Barrel Restaurant's we've eaten in”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

This is within walking distance of LaQuinta Inns and Suites in Clive, Iowa (Des Moines, Iowa) and we ate breakfast here at 2 p.m. and needed no supper later that night. The food was even better than usual for this restaurant chain. Did you know that the bread is 'unlimited'? My husband loves their biscuits! I can recommend the hashbrown casserole and fried apples as a sure fire hit too!

“Noisy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

I guess we have never been to a Cracker Barrel for dinner (around 7pm), but it was sooooo noisy! Everything else was fine and I realize they can't control the noise...but from now on I will request a table as far away from familes with young children.

“Love their breakfast”

Have been going there for years. Meals are consistent and service is good. Good place for families to share a meal together.

“Like most Cracker Barrels - Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

We stopped in to dine at this Cracker barrel because we feel we can always depend on good food at a Cracker Barrel. This helt true in this one and we enjoyed a very tasty meal. Two of us ordered the homestyle chicken for our lunch and it was delicious. Service was good and this mad everything very enjoyable

“Lots of menu choices”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

I ordered the vegetable beef soup and it was terrible. I would not recommend this. Others in party seemed to enjoy their food and it was cooked correctly.
