Cracker Barrel is always a good choice for a family breakfast outing. Their menu choices are great and the service is friendly and fast. You can never go wrong with a side dish of hash brown casserole!

This place is always busy but fast. Excellent service and good food. We visit every month or so for breakfast for dinner.

Who doesn't know about Cracker Barrel! The food is really good with ample portions. The wait staff is always pleasant. Love the Stewart's root beer, served in an ice-cold mug. I have been in many of these restaurants in many states. They are always good when you are on the road.

My husband and I have dined here a few times this week. Both dinners were great. Warm and delicious comfort food is the best way to describe the offerings (the biscuits are amazing); and the servers are friendly and very accommodating. We will definitely return!

Sadly I don't recall our waiters name but he was quite memorable as was his service. He was friendly, one of those people that have never met a stranger. So helpful & generous. Food, well you can't go wrong with Cracker Barrel. I had their special Pot Roast with mushroom gravy, yum. Mashed potatoes and mixed veggies prepared the way... More

In kind of early and it took a little longer to get seated just because the staff was on the smallish size. Order taken quickly and delivered to the table quickly. The eggs were just a tad overcooked for medium poached but All the food was very tasty. Paying took a little longer as well not because of crowds but... More

We always know that we can get good food at Cracker Barrel. We love breakfast the most. Because the hotel we stayed at let their employees eat the breakfast they had out for guests we were unable to eat there so we came to Cracker Barrel. Good was great, service was ok and price is always good.

Kids are out and about, and wife and I didn't want to cook. Gave this place a chance, very glad we did. Immediate seating, and great waitstaff. I had the open face roast beef sandwich, the wife had chicken livers. Both meals were like good home cooking. Thought my mother was in the back preparing our meal. Darn glad we... More

Service here can be slow but is usually friendly. The food is consistently good. They seriously need to dust the things hanging on the walls next to the tables. The dust bunnies are taking over.

Love that you can get breakfast no matter what time of day. Fun to browse the store if you have to wait for a table. Note, they do not serve alcohol if you are there for dinner.
