We have visited many Cracker Barrel locations throughout the country but this was our first visit to this location. We enjoyed our dinner very much. I had pot roast, DH had the turkey dinner special and our son had a burger. Service was excellent and attentive and the food was tasty and large portions. A great store for the chain

So many menu items to choose from, it was hard to decide. Two of us got salads, which were feeling and lots of ingredients. Special orders were not a problem. I, myself, got the grilled rainbow trout! It was prepared perfectly and the seasoning was exceptional. Too much food to eat! Very comfortable and accommodating for our party, with my... More

We stopped in after the German Shepherd Dog show at Dakota County Fairgrounds and even though they were busy we were seated and served quickly. Tried one traditional meal and one healthy option. Did a take out meal for my husband and he liked his too. I like the gift shop and the country feel and the service is always... More

I have read some of the other reviews of Cracker Barrel, some good and some bad. Let me give you a southerners perspective! We had been on a road trip for 9 days in the northern states, when we saw the Cracker Barrel sign. We were so excited!!! Finally a place that served the elixir of the south.....SWEET TEA! Our...

Great food,excellent service. Like all the trinkets they have. The only negative it is very noisy inside. If you are hard of hearing you will not be able to have a conversation.

This place is a national chain which is definitely not worth the stop. Surprisingly, it's busy all the the time for some unknown reason. It has a cute gift shop but aren't you going to eat? It's called the local fat farm as everything is high cal. Continue down the highway and stop at Harry's at the Hwy 70 exit.... More

Cracker Barrel in Lakeville, MN (Southern fringe of the Minneapolis - St. Paul Metro on I-35) is one of those "theme" restaurants that seem just a bit out of place in the Land of Ole and Lena. The Cracker Barrel chain itself is of Southern origin, and the decor and ambiance tries to reflect that, though they now have well... More

My wife and I visited on a busy Saturday night but were able to get a table right away. Even though they were busy, our service was prompt and friendly. I ordered the meatloaf which I have ordered before and it was its usual great tasting. I ordered sides of corn, green beans and mashed potatoes with gravy which were... More
