Stopped to have dinner and was extremely happy. Went for dinner, but ended up eating off the breakfast menu instead. My husband had the Old Timer breakfast and there was enough there for both of us. I had the blueberry pancakes and they were a little chewy. Our server was very pleasant and cheerful. Very attentive to our needs too.... More

This past year for Thanksgiving, we decided to visit our son in Milwaukee, only to find out he had to work Thanksgiving Day, so we decided to celebrate Thanksgiving on Sunday, when he was off. So, we went looking Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, for palace to eat. Everyone was closed except, Cracker Barrel! We were pleasantly surprised as well as ready... More

So glad I found a Cracker Barrel because when I first saw it, I started craving. Well long story short, I went for breakfast and it lived up to all I wanted which was crispy bacon, bacon, bacon !!!! Adona C.

We hadn't been here in quite awhile but went for breakfast Sunday morning, busy as usual with a wait for table, our server seemed very rushed. Noticed that the portions have gotten smaller, especially the grits. I like to go here for the grits as there are very few places in Midwest where you can get it. Used to get... More

Of all the Cracker Barrels we have visited in our life, this has got to be one of the worst I have been in. Good hostess but no waitress for quite a while. The hostess saw us and asked if we had seen a waitress and that she would go get one. Finally one came. We placed our order. One... More

Cracker Barrel is one of our GoTo Restaurants. This is a dependable chain, with generally tasty prompt food. This visit, we were on the road, with miles to go, when we stopped for dinner. We ordered, and the entrees were late coming out. The table next to us had many requests, that was a factor. When the food finally came,... More

Not knowing the area Cracker Barrel is easy a great meeting place with friends. It is easy on and off the freeway. The breakfast we ordered was very good and the eggs cooked just right and the fruit is fresh. We had a nice visit with our friends and the coffee cup never went empty. Very good servers. Shopping has... More

What more can you say about Cracker Barrel. Every location is good. When you walk inside the smell is amazing. The variety of candies from the past is amazing. Lots of things to see and browse. Excellent food in a comfortable atmosphere. This is always a great choice.

I ate here twice in July, 2016. The service was extremely slow. On one of the occasions we asked for help after waiting at the table for 10 minutes and no help. Finally someone came by and asked if the other waitress had helped us yet. When we said no, he shook his head and agreed to help. The food... More
