“Consistently Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

We went to the Cicero Cracker Barrel for lunch recently. We were glad to find that breakfast is served all day. The meals are served with buttermilk biscuits or corn muffins....a nice additional touch. I personally had the meatloaf dinner which was delicious. It was one thick slice seasoned with onions, peppers and topped with a tomato sauce. It came with a choice of 3 sides. It was a hearty meal and I will definitely be back to order it again. One in our party ordered pancakes and she said that they were light, fluffy and delicious. Service was very good and the restaurant manager visited tables to ensure that everything was acceptable and that diners were having a good experience.

“Good, old fashioned breakfast at today's prices.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

Cracker Barrels all serve a standard, excellent breakfast. Eggs are cooked as you wish, hash browned potatoes are very well done, and, most prices are at the upper end of reasonable. The quality justifies most prices except for the coffee. If you can't drink at least four cups you can't get your money's worth.
The decorations & atmosphere are great nostalgia. The fireplace is a bit of heaven on a cold morning.
Most Cracker Barrels allow overnight RV parking so I stop at them often. I think it fair to eat a meal there in gratitude so with that taken into consideration the tab was fair. But three bucks for coffee?
Wow!

“First and last visit”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

Not long to wait for table. Waitress (Jody H) without a smile or a hello rattled off the list of specials etc. as if the place was on fire. Then immediately said, " so what do you want" we asked if we could order drinks first which she did with some hesitance. We placed our food order which when arrived quite quickly was not overly appetising but filled a spot. A recent survey I read revealed that the worst state for unfriendly service was New York state. This experience in this Cracker Barrel certainly agree with that survey.

“Great Pancakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

I had not been in awhile and had never had breakfast. What a treat! A friend treated us and recommended the pancakes with blackberries. You will not be disappointed. I can't wait to go back. They also have a nice country store to shop in.

Food, Service, Price - you can't beat this place. We come every time we head to Syracuse and have never been disappointed. The staff goes above and beyond - the food is amazing.
