Typical Cracker Barrel, nothing out of the ordinary. The food is always good at most Cracker Barrels. However the service from our waiter was pretty bad. He came with the food and I asked him for a glass of water and a couple of extra napkins and they never came and he came with the check and never asked us... More

We were visiting Lancaster, PA and had recently done some shopping at the nearby Tanger and Rockvale Outlets and went to this Cracker Barrel for an early dinner. The restaurant is located in the same lot where part of the Rockvale Outlets can be found. It is also easy to get to this Cracker Barrel and is conveniently located off... More

Sunday morning breakfast, holiday weekend, Lancaster area... where ya gonna go? Crackerbarrel is (or should be) about consistency... we find very little variation between locations overall--if you review one CB, you've reviewed them all. Our biggest "complaint" with this location is the noise level. There is nothing in the large dining area to absorb sound. It was mobbed while we... More

It's hard to go wrong with Cracker Barrel. I particularly love the butter bisque taste but the burgers, sandwiches and soups are all good. I know, I finished my meal and most of my children's meals.

This was the first time my wife and I have eaten at the Lancaster Cracker Barrel but it won't be the last. My hamburger steak was very good and my wife enjoyed her vegetable plate. The service was good. I've eaten at many Crack Barrel restaurants and have been impressed with the consistent quality of food and service.

The food was very good, although the portion size has gotten smaller (a few bites of mashed potatoes and green beans and it was gone). The service was very good. Erin was very friendly and kept our drinks filled.
