We stopped by mid-afternoon, and it was the first time I have ever been in a Cracker Barrel that was not completely full. We enjoyed attentive service, good healthy yet tasty meals for the kids (huge variety of options for sides with the kids meals, which made it hard for them to choose!). The adults had more hearty food and... More

We ate at this restaurant on Sunday Morning Apri 2, 2017 Service was very good. Food was very good, as with my experiecne of most Cracker Barrels. As always almost too much to eat. Would not hesitate eating there again.

The staff were very nice at this Cracker Barrel. Our one disappointment was it did take a long time to get our food. It was just "average" busy, not swamped. The people next to us were locals and said the last time they visited it took a long time to get their food also. They had some children they were... More

The pork chop was very nice for the price, which was reasonable. their onion, tomato, cucumber salad was good and... More

We love their breakfast entrees. Bacon, pancakes and eggs are cooked perfectly. Service is quick and friendly. Dinner entrees are average. We were disappointed with the chicken and dumplings because the dumplings were undercooked and mushy. It is conveniently located right off I94.

This is an inexpensive place to eat. Even tho it was crowded we didnt feel neglected.The pork chop was big for $7.95, the corn muffins were utterly inspiring, and they have more veg choices than anybody I know. Amusing antique decor & fireplace too. Good service. Very busy and pretty noisy.

On a Sunday, girl friend and I wanted a decent breakfast. Services was poor given that some of the staff didn't show up. (You have to admire American workers). Our waitress left our food under a heat lamp for at least 25 minutes before she had the time to serve us. Had to fetch my own coffee and quite honestly... More

Consistently good food & great prices at Cracker Barrel no matter where you travel in the U.S. Even though there may be waiting lines on weekends, it's always fun to pass the time by shopping in the store, especially with the old time soda & candies.
