Friends and I go here often for a breakfast club and CB is always accommodating. The food is always quick, accurate and tasty. I love the atmosphere, even at it's most crowded it feels like a small town breakfast place. I can't say much for the dinners, I'm not a fan, but for brunch and breakfast everything is delicious. Coffee... More

I usually visit CB when on travel; good food and reasonably priced. The quality of the food at this location varies a lot. I had better service and quality of food along the busy I-95. Sometimes it is overcooked and often lukewarm. I come here for lunch and dinner. My favorite day is Friday with fried fish dinner. Apple dumplings... More

We've been to Cracker Barrels up and down the east coast. It's our families favorite place to eat when traveling. This may have been our best one yet. Our waitress (Tia) was very friendly and very efficient. She took our orders without writing anything down and got everything perfect. Followed up with refills without even being asked. Keep up the... More

Cracker Barrel serves the best breakfast. Their omelettes and pancakes are superb. The waitresses are really good and you see them around with some kind of stars on their aprons, must be for being so nice.

Come here from time to time when I crave comfort food. This is a chain restaurant so your experience will vary depending on server. I like their breakfast and service seems quick and friendly. I give it three stars because it is always so pact and noisy and food can be inconsistent at times. For instance, their grits and coffee... More

I took my daughter and her friend for my daughter's 18th birthday. First off, no chocolate chip pancakes for her - her favorite. I know they have had them before. Then the meal came out in piecemeal. My scrambled eggs but not bread. Pancakes but no syrup or butter. This was the 2nd chance I gave them. Last time was... More

If you're in Lexington Park and can't decide where to go for dinner, then just go to Cracker Barrel. There's plenty of choices on the menu. I had the Pecan Catfish while my wife had the veggie plate. The Pecan Cathfish was very tasty. Service was prompt and friendly.

I only come here for their special grill catfish lunch and dinner, which are good and great value. Love the sweet potatoes and okras. The rest of the food is just ok, about the same as IHOP.

Thank Melissa T
