I really like the Chicken fried steak breakfast, I usually get two meals out of it. Plus it's one of the few places in Springfield that still makes homemade gravy, I love it!

My coffee was cold. Took 10 minutes to get hot coffee. We ordered pinto beans for hubby and vegetable soup for me. Took almost 30 minutes to receive our food. Both were lukewarm. The soup tasted watered down and pretty tasteless. Waited 10 more minutes...for waiter to return. What a disappointment! So sad!More

We liked our lunch here. Great fries and grilled chicken salads. We were a group of six people. Service was good. They were short on some foods: halibut, French dressing, and other items.

Definitely a place to eat if you can’t decide what kind of food you want. There are many varieties of food to choose from. You might not believe this — every dish was delicious. We bought a lot of different entrees, there was so much...to eat we saved some for the next day. Reheated was just as fresh tasting. If you want home cooked meals while on a trip this is the place to eat. Stop by here and have the chicken & dumplings or Mac & Cheese, maybe the special of the day. Or you might just try the sampler. Wherever you decide to eat, I highly recommend you give this place a try. Whoops——Food looked so good, started eating, then I remembered to take pictures. YUMMY!! Our family shared entrees.More

Always a favorite when traveling. Why? Easy parking for my RV. Consistent food. Fun shopping for the kids. Clean bathrooms. Quick service. And rocking chairs outside. Love it.

We arrived in town and were pretty excited that Cracker Barrel was just across from our hotel. This place does not disappoint. We ordered to-go and our order was quick, accurate and oh so delicious. The staff was friendly and professional and extremely competent. This...will be our go-to place whenever we are in the beautiful town of Springfield, MO.More

We came here and got takeout. I ordered their Friday fish fry special because everyone's been recommending it. I had the cod and it was so good! Their fried apples are also very good!

Probably one of the best Cracker Barrel’s I have been to. They were swamped at 730 on a Thursday evening and we waited 20 minutes or so to be seated. Had one of the best waitresses ever, she was excellent. Our party of three had...the chicken pot pie and two of us decided on the turkey dinner. they were out of the turkey and dressing, and the waitress suggested the fried turkey with gravy and sides. She was spot on it was very good! Good dinner and excellent service!More

We have eaten here many times and have always enjoyed our meal and experience. Unfortunately, that was not our experience today. We were seated quickly even though we had six in our party and they were busy. The waitress was nice but she was having...an off day. She brought my mother the wrong drink (diet Coke instead of regular) - not that big of deal. However, when she was taking the wrong soda from the table she dumped it down my mother's back and got her coat and her side wet. She apologized and helped clean my mother up. We gave her our order and when she brought the food out she had written down the wrong item for my parents and had to have the kitchen make it again. Fortunately, it didn't take that long. However, when my daughter was eating her chicken fried chicken, she found a piece of saran wrap between the chicken and the breading! When we told the waitress, she immediately took it to her manager who was standing by the fire. We expected him to come over and talk to us about it but he didn't. The waitress later came by and asked if he had come over and, when we told her no, she was obviously upset. I almost made it to the cash register before she came and said she was going to take the dish off our bill - the manager never talked to us or even seemed to care (my guess is that she took it off the bill herself without his approval). All he said to her was that the saran wrap must have come from the mashed potatoes! Anyway, in my mother's words, the meal was a disaster and one we would rather not repeat anytime soon.More

Nothing in my memory particularly stands out, good or bad, about this one. I do know that,although it was mid October, they already had a lot of Christmas items out, but for all I know, Cracker Barrel does that year round.

This is your normal Cracker Barrel. With breakfast served all day, makes a GREAT lunch. All came out as ordered, eggs done right. Got to have the baked apples, best desert that you get as a side. Service was good as expected. Again, no suprises...can be a good thing.More
