This was my second time here in the past 6 or so years. Didn't like it the first time and I really didn't like it this second time. The wait was over an hour. No one at our table could talk to each other because it was so loud. Menu choices are weak and the food was not very tasty.... More

Love Cracker Barrel - nice home cooked style southern meals. I've had everything at this location and everything is generally very good. I like the fact you can replace turkey sausage for Pork and also like the baked chicken dish as well.

Have been to N.Y. Cracker Barrel Rest. many times over the years, however after getting on the net last night to see if there was a closer location, I began reading some of the reviews and became a little concerned of the negative comments. My father and I decided to make the almost hour long drive anyways and am Extremely... More

We often stop at a Cracker Barrel while traveling because it is consistent and convenient to the highway. This Cracker Barrel needs work. We ate lunch at about 2:30. The restaurant was very busy but the food was below the usual level when compared to the many we have gone to. Burger was cremated, chicken and noodles were served on... More

I love this restaurant. It is a family favorite. They have delicious southern cooking. I recommend the Country Fried Steak. This is if you don't want to think about calories.

Had a regular breakfast with homefries. I wonder why on earth one would add salt to homefries in the kitchen. The food was not impressive, country ham was extremely salty... Service on the other hand was great but it was too expensive for the food I got.

I am from the south and was very happy to find out there is a Cracker Barrel less that's a mile away from our hotel. Not what I expected in upstate New York. When traveling it is comforting to know you can find restaurants that you are familiar and know what to expect. Cracker Barrel has good food at a... More

I really enjoy Cracker Barrel. Nice service. Quick. Good options. Love their fresh made biscuits. Ordered the Campout mixed grill. It's beef, sausage, carrots, corn on the cob, onions and potatoes all cooked together and wrapped in foil. Great flavor. Dad age was really good. You could pick the beef apart with your fork. Worth coming back for

Thank jalva1012
