Stopped for breakfast, we were travelling. Restaurant looked uncrowded. Took 10 minutes to get our disabled uncle out of the car. Got inside, front room was empty, saw a large party in the back. Girl at register said there would be a long wait because of the large party. Didn't know how long. Got back in the car and went... More

My fiance and I enjoyed our evening here. Service was great and friendly. I ordered the Thursday special of Turkey and stuffing. Everything was so delicious and filling. Chicken and dumplings were awesome to my fiance. Our waitress had many tables, but was constantly checking on us. She was great. I love coming here because no matter the crowd, service... More

This is one of our favorite breakfast diners but got very disappointed this am. We waited 43 minutes and still no food insight although the waitress came 2x to explain they only have 2 cooks and a bus load of customers just left . However other tables were served before us. We left but the sad thing is when I... More

We were very disappointed with our dinner . The portions keep getting smaller and smaller. We originally ate at the Neshaminy, PA location and thought it was just that restaurant. However, on the way down to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, we tried another Cracker Barrel and had the same experience. We won't be eating there again. I always got the... More

Located off of I 95 this location is a little tricky to find. The sign is visible but the building is hidden. You can't see the building from the street. Typical Cracker Barrel with a line to get in but it moves fairly quickly. Good was average as was the service. Average, predictable but not disappoint ing.

We arrived at dinner time and the place was hopping! We had at least a 35 minute wait and because it was so busy, it was hard to move around in the store and keep two children occupied in our party of 6. It was very hot outside so going out to wait on a rocker wasn't an option. When... More

We always look for Cracker Barrel on our trips but this time we just drove a few miles from home to give it a try. Very dependable and delectable lunch special for the day was pork chops. The meat was very tender and the side dishes were complimentary.

As busy as they were, and as packed as it LOOKED, the staff ran this restaurant with precision and were beyond courteous. Jamie was our server and she was a rockstar.

We had large group. We didn't have to wait to long, even though it was vert busy. Food was how we expected, and waitress refilled our drinks several times without us having to request it or flag her down.

Thank RayClan
