Standard Cracker barrel. Food was good, service was good (although he was a very strange character) good value. You know what you're going to get going to CB.

It's the usual Cracker Barrel fare...nothing really exciting but you won't get a bad meal. Portions are a bit on the small side from what I remember from the past. Service is good, but seating during peak times can mean waiting 30 mns or more.

My boyfriend and I grab breakfast here whenever we are on this side of town! Everyone is super friendly and the breakfasts are generous in portion size for the price! I also love shopping in the store- we always find something we need!

I am a big fan of Cracker Barrel. I went during the week while on business so it was not as busy and crowded as the one I usually frequent back home. The staff was engaging, friendly and efficient as always.

We enjoyed a very good breakfast recently at the Cracker Barrel in Chester. The country ham was excellent as was the "sawmill" gravy. The portions are very generous. The service was acceptable but could be improved. The apple butter, which is served on request is also very good.

Late lunch, group of 13 - told there would be a 20-minute wait. Two hours later, we were seated. Food was good, service was great. The wait was ridiculous. I spoke with a guest that was leaving while waiting in line to pay for a gift. They were there for a business meeting. Had finished up and just stayed and... More

Love their casual atmosphere even if it's sometimes noisey. The comfort-food menu is just what you're looking for every now and then. Their shoppe always offers something it's hard to resist.

My wife and I met her friend and her husband at the Cracker Barrel for dinner. It was nothing special just a night out. A Cracker Barrel employee greeted us very warmly when we entered the store. There were not a lot of patrons in the restaurant but we had to wait several minutes before the host appeared and showed... More

We were in and out in just about one hour. The plate special of the day was explained to us while we experienced a momentary delay in seating. The assigned server was courteous, polite, friendly without being overly familiar and established and maintained good eye with both of us throughout dining. The dining experience at this restaurant is far superior... More

I love the gift shop... Did some Christmas shopping while waiting to be seated. The meal was nice. Home cooking experience. I was barely able to take the last few bites.
