“Wanted it to be better!”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Sorry but our meal wasn't great. My silverware was dirty; they forgot the sauerkraut on my Ruben sandwich and the kids didn't even like their mac and cheese, (which is basically unheard of in our family). We had to request a booster seat 3 times before it came and it wasn't even crowded at all. My husband thought his sandwich was just mediocre. It was maybe just an off day for them? I dunno but the place seemed kind of ready for an overhaul in the kitchen.

“Country cookin done right”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Terrific upbeat service from our waitress. Took time to explain dishes we were interested in. I loved the cornbread muffins that came out hot with plenty of butter to spread on them as we briefly waited for our meals. Nostalgic home cooking with some updated more healthy choices on the menu.

“Above and beyond”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Having breakfast at Cracker Barrel was the highlight of our April 2012 stay in Columbia. We came four mornings in a row and were never disappointed. The food is always good, hot, and quickly served. One morning the weather was colder than usual, and there was a fire burning in the fireplace - what a treat. Cannot say enough about this place, we will be sure to stop here every time we're in Columbia.

“Great Breakfast”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Our group ate breakfast at the Cracker Barrel , we all had different item's to eat but everyone said, their food was very good. They were busy but our service was great. The waitress we had kept checking on us to make sure we had everything we needed. So the service was good as well as the food. We will go back the next time we visit Columbia.
