Food was simple, took a while to get it. Overall tasty but smaller portions than I gotten used to when we ate it in Florida! It was very busy at the time of patronage as it was veterans day and the store and restaurant were overflowing. We went for lunch & had lunch. Good stop if your traversing NJ as... More

We used to enjoy going out for breakfast to this Cracker Barrel location. Today, our experience was definitely poor in comparison to other visits. The restaurant was not crowded at all, I've had better food when there are busloads arriving. We were there for breakfast and the coffee was not good, the pancakes were rubber and burnt on the edges,... More

Very popular restaurant with the kind of food and service you don't mind queuing up for. You will need a wheel barrow to get you out of there if you're not disciplined.

We went there driving up to our rental house on the lake and had breakfast. I had Grandpa’s Country Fried Breakfast with Sawmill Gravy, eggs and hashbrown casserole. No sooner did I eat, I had to go to the bathroom and I had stomach problems for a few days after that.

The last few visits to this location have not been as pleasurable as in the past. I go to Cracker Barrel enough to know that things are different. Several of our food items had to be sent back for either being over or under cooked. Additionally we witnessed other patrons send food back to the kitchen, one even three times.... More

I had breakfast here for the first time and it was great. Old fashioned waffles, pancakes, and other choices. Usually I come for dinner and get the Cajun catfish which is also really good. The store is fun to shop in as well.

Was my first time visiting Cracker Barrel. We came from Land of Make Believe. Was excited because everyone always talks about it. The place was so cute and loved the gift shop. The only thing was it took so long to sit when the place was half empty. Our server was good, but very slow. She handed the bill to... More

We visited Crackle Barrel after our son's wedding with a large group. The food and service were very good. I would recommend this restaurant when you wish for more than fast food.

Thank glenmeny
