We had a large family gathering for breakfast. The restaurant was very busy but our service was still outstanding. The food was delicious as always. My sister with special needs got sick during our meal and the kindness and attentiveness the staff showed us was heartwarming and we have so much gratitude to them. Even with the circumstances, they made... More

If you are hungry when you are near Kankakee, IL, consider this Cracker Barrel. It is slightly north of Kankakee, approximately 6 miles. I have been to several Cracker Barrels and this one is near the top of the list. Staff were inviting and accommodating. Food was prepared well and the place appeared neat and clean, even the bathroom. This... More

Most of the time the food is good. I really enjoy their grilled steak, baked potato, and salad. My husband LOVED the campfire grill dishes. They are seasonal, yet if they had them year round, we probably would eat here more. Their breakfast is so, so. Their biscuits and gravy is bland, the rest just mediocre. Their burgers are tasty...

We had a terrible experience. The server paid attention to only one table -clearly her family or friends. It took forever, the food was wrong, and we certainly didn't have time to wait again. If took us nearly two hours to get out of there. The server apologized but only after we made it clear we were unhappy.

A good example of what the cracker barbell brand wants to be. Even though it was shortlisted we did not feel rushed. Food same as always, branded restaurant like McDonald's they do not vary. This is one of their good ones. Cute store up front while you wait.

I had a pretty typical visit to Cracker Barrel... Pretty good food and lots of it. The waitress could have been better, especially since it wasn't busy, but otherwise it was like any other Cracker Barrel location.
