We've eaten at Cracker Barrels up and down the east coast. This one can't get it right Last visit, service was very slow and the sugar ham was a piece of unchewable leather. They did refund the meal price and made good. Corn bread made it to us by dessert This visit, main courses were good, however portion control was... More

Years ago Cracker Barrel was pretty good. The food is average at best. I went for breakfast with my family, and figured they couldn't mess up breakfast. I was wrong. I ordered 2 eggs with sausage patties and fried apples. The eggs were small and the 2 sausage patties were a bit bigger then silver dollars. The fried apple was... More

Great food, great serve, fast and a lot for the money. Also had a shop to pick up stuff or just look around. Planning to come again.

Yep! Right there at exit 30! Fine atmosphere. Plenty of parking. Great service by a professional staff. Food is just right for this type of establishment. Will return often.

My wife and I ate lunch here as we were staying at the hotel next to this restaurant. Staff was friendly and the food was good. No complaints. The rooms were very noisy but that goes with the time of day and holiday weekend No problems

Hubby and I went for breakfast expecting a decent meal based on our previous dining experiences. I had French toast which was so hard it was hard to eat it and he got an omelette t that one of my children could have cooked since it was truly awful. I did complain and was given a gift card but not... More

Once again my brother was visiting from California and we chose The Cracker Barrel to have brunch. There was no place to park! My brother had secured a reservation and we were seated within 10 minutes but the place was crazy busy. Our server brought coffee immediately, took our orders and was back with our meal in 10 minutes. I... More

It is made in foil which has Leg Quarter Chicken Carrots , Corn on the Carb, small potatoes in a steam mix. Good portion & tastes... More

As with other CrackerBarrels, this one off Rte80 is easy to get to; close to the Courtyard, is a bonus. Safety is important to me and I allllllways feel safe in the CrackerBarrel parking lots, but this one more so with all the bright lights in the parking lot. Lots of gift ideas, too, so perfect place to pick up... More
