My wife and I and another couple stopped here on our way home from a business trip in New Hampshire. I've heard mixed reviews from friends and family about Cracker Barrel but had never stopped myself, until now. We all had a great meal that was reasonably priced. The place was booming but only had to wait 5 minutes for... More

Ate at the Cracker Barrel several times during our coastal visit to Maine. As always the food and service was excellent. The store is also entertaining to look through.

We were lucky to have a Cracker Barrel in South Portland! We came here for dinner and had the Sunday night chicken specials. They were reasonably priced and very good. You also get like 3 sides with your meal. And the service was very good. We will eat here again.

One Cracker Barrel is just about equal to any other, but this is Maine's only one! The food is predictable and plentiful. Lots of options for any meal, but breakfast all day is a winner for me. Their pancakes are delicious.

We love stopping here for a family meal on our road trips. The food is fantastic and well priced, and the service is always great. We order, and then go look around the cute general store. We've been here many times, and it's always an enjoyable experience!

The menu is huge had to come... More

After trying several places to have a Sunday morning breakfast and being told the wait would be long, we looked at Cracker Barrel. A 10 minute wait, they took our name and called us within 10 minutes. Service was prompt, food hot and well prepared.

Cracker Barrel serves breakfast all day! that totally hit the spot for me! I had hashbrown casserole and sausage. very tasty and inexpensive! The place is also... More
