Cracker Barrels are a pretty consistent restaurant chain. Some are better than others and this is one of the better ones. Service was quick and friendly and the food was out quickly and hot.

This Cracker Barrel is a routine stop as we pass through Harrisburg on the way to Central and Northwest PA. My wife had the Chicken and Dumplings with Green Beans and Fried Apples, she loved it. I had the Pork Chop Special with Cornbread Dressing and Fried Apples. The pork chops were very good but needed gravy to finish off... More

Another one of our favorites. They have a different special every night. Service is good but we often have to have the food heated because it comes out luke warm

We ate all three meals there over a couple of days, Sunday they had huge crowds but handled it well. Wait time was about 20 minutes.

Our Tuesday morning experience could have been much worse. I don't consider this a plus. My wife was wanting Cracker Barrel for sometime and that morning we were in the neighborhood. I'm thankful that this location staff was accommodating and very friendly. The food...... the eggs were lukewarm to borderline cold. Portions were HORRIBLE. They must be really low on... More

Stopped in for dinner after a snow storm as we were laying over for the evening. The daily special, Roast Turkey with Cornbread Stuffing my wife ordered was very good. MyChicken Fried Chicken was a excellent! The service was prompt and friendly. Worth stopping when traveling through Harrisburg or visiting.

We come here, when it is very cold out... sit by the fireplace! Very warming atmosphere! Food & service are always the greatest! WE, suppose, many customers come here off of I-81! But, we live within 7 miles, so, we come for the Comfort foods!

For us, Cracker Barrel has always been a dependable travel stop for a tasty, well-prepared country-cooked meal. At this location we were bitterly disappointed. One of our favorite dishes, the mustard greens, were very, very over-salted and almost dry. The service was extremely slow -- we sat unnoticed at our assigned table for almost 1/2 hour before a waitress, not... More
