The service (even the initial mandatory cup of morning coffee) was slow arriving and inattentive. On top of that the food, once it arrived, was barely warm.

I honestly am not a fan of any cracker barrels. I have been to this cracker barrel one time and food service and even the soda was gross to me. In my opinion you just have to be a fan of cracker barrel

The Cracker Barrel is a great place to go for some good home style cooking. We love the resturant. It's a good place to relax and enjoy a good meal, breakfast, lunch or dinner!

Stopped at Cracker Barrel early on a Saturday in June on my way to Alabama. Had a good breakfast (passed on the grits). Very good service. Love to browse all the gifts and clothing while I'm there.

Foods changed. There's been something wrong with our order the last two times there. They don't even have pickles for burgers now haha. Only go there when I have to. Plenty of other choices in Mattoon.

Had not been to a Cracker Barrel in years and wasn't sure what to expect. Food was very good, service was excellent, we had no wait, prices were average. Great location off the highway for travelers. All we kept seeing was fast food restaurants. Happy...More
