We had a large Party of 9 people and the service was slow. Could be a smaller staff for a Monday Morning I don't know...but it was notably slower than a normal Cracker Barrel. Food was still awesome and the Coffee was hot!

Stopped here for breakfast on the way home from kalahari. After a 30 minute wait for the table, waited 50 more for the food. The explanation, they were busy due to the weather causing the would be Cedar Pointer goers to stop in! It was a Sunday so it seems a bigger crowd should be expected and the kitchen ready... More

We normally have nothing but good reviews for the food and service at all locations. Unfortunately, over the past several months our local one (Sandusky) has been very disappointing. We have stopped dining at this location as much because of repeated slow (and I mean really slow) service, mediocre food, and inability to produce correct orders. On Monday, July 25,... More

Basic food you would find at cracker barrel. Grits were runny. Server didn't check on us very often. Nomadicfamilyadventures

We're Canadians and have never been to a Cracker Barrel before, but we were staying in the area and decided to give it a try. My husband and I decided to give the Campfire meals a try but the waitress said they were all out. Disappointed she said "let me go double check". She came right back and said 3... More

We traveled to Sandusky to go to Cedar Point but stopped at the Cracker Barrel beforehand for breakfast. It was by far the worst service we had ever experienced. Our server was absent for most of our visit and unpleasent when she was talking to us. The place was mostly empty and we still waited over 20 minutes for drinks... More

I have been to many Cracker Barrel's across this country. The one in Sandusky has the worst service, by far, of any CB I've visited. This visit was on a Tuesday morning. Less than a quarter of the tables were occupied, yet it took more than an hour to get our food. When it did arrive, some the eggs were... More

Too hot to cook.... So we headed to Cracker Barrel where there are plenty of choices. I had a refreshing grilled chicken salad. My husband had breakfast. We finished with dessert. It was a nice change of pace in a world of fast food.

Typical Cracker Barrel chain but this is a clean location! I always find something good to eat while getting Dad out for a little bit. This location is just down the road from the Ohio Veteran's Home, so you may see a few of the vets while you dine.

Cracker Barrel is like going home: maybe not real exciting but you know what to expect and you always feel good about going there. When all else fails, this is where my wife and I end up. The food is good and plentiful; the service is above average, the atmosphere is warm and inviting and the prices are reasonable. What... More
