my wife and I had to wait a good deal of time just to get the menus and then even longer to order - however, the food came out in a timely way - but we never saw our waitress again, even long after we were finished we had to sit there to wait for the bill - and to... More

We have never, ever had a bad experience at any Cracker Barrel we have visited. The staff are so friendly, suggesting menu items when we weren't sure what we wanted. We even went back for dessert and coffee in the evening. We had their new beef and sausage dinner that comes wrapped in tin foil with perfectly cooked veggies, potatoes... More

Good food and busy. May have a short wait but fast turnover. Biscuits and corn muffins were great and even took home leftovers.

We eat here every Sunday Morning when we are in the Omaha Area. The food is great, the service is even better and it is all fair priced. We shall return and keep on returning. You folks should give them a try.

I always enjoy breakfast at Cracker Barrel restaurants. The food is usually the same whatever location you visit. The only real drawback is that it can get very loud when they are busy.

I went to this Cracker Barrel, it was during the week. My order was so burnt that it was sicking. Pancakes burnt, bacon over burnt, eggs were so greasy. Yes, the Manager replaced order, only to have the pancakes laced in so much butter this times, it just dripped like an oil rag full of oil dripping all over. Can't... More

You just can't beat Cracker Barrel for their consistently high quality, delicious home-style cooking. The wait staff is always friendly and cheerful, and the food is top notch. Drive to this location from our home in Omaha a few times every month. Have visited other locations across the U.S. when we travel and have had the same great experience every... More

Always try and stop at Cracker Barrel's. This one was very nice, clean and people were friendly. Our waitress, April, made us feel like part of her family. She was caring, made sure we had everything we needed and came back often to be sure we were still doing ok. The food was wonderful and served hot. Love it! Our... More
