Food was good, waitstaff was good, prices are good. One of the very few places you can take 4 adults and 2 toddlers and not spend a fortune.

Are they good meal at Cracker Barrel. I usually get the yogurt with fruit and granola. Their coffee is always hot and fresh. The service is outstanding. My grandkids like bacon and eggs and they're very picky about their food and they love Cracker Barrel also

It is sad that in 2016, I am compelled to write this review. I went out to breakfast and arrived just after 8 am on a Saturday morning. My party and I were seated in the rear dining room where at the time was just one other party of about 6 men. No waitress ever appeared at our table--however several... More

Love this place. Consistently good comfort food. Waitress and staff have it together. Good hot and filling. Portions are good but prices are going up. Two breakfasts. 32- THE ATTACHED GIFTSHOP IS ACES. Always sa good selection at fair prices. I'll definitely go back. Wish there was one on Long Island.

I always get pancakes, crisp bacon and well done hash browns which are usually perfect, staff is friendly and service is usually prompt except for Sundays when it is full of church-goers. The only thing missing from the menu is creamed chipped beef which is my personal favorite but not at Cracker Barrel.

I love to eat at the Cracker Barrel in Downingtown when I am not to hungry. I love the rubben sandwich, it is my favorite. The staff is great and the manager goes out of his to see that you are satisfied. My fiance loves the meatloaf dinners. If you like good home like cooking it is the place to... More

I've seen some of the recent reviews of this restaurant. I'm surprised and not surprised. I live in this area and find that too many people are totally unreasonable in their demands. I never had a bad expeience here.
