The food was good. We did not have to wait long for our food to come out. Good size portions and food was served at the right temperature. Our server was okay. She could have check with us about beverage refills and if we wanted dessert. We will go there again and hope for a better server.

Good food and service which one would expect at Cracker Barrel. The Pintos were dynamite. Love the wood fireplace and atmosphere.

Typical Cracker Barrel with good food. Service was a little spotty. Went for dinner and breakfast, wait staff almost non existent the whole time on both occasions.

Good ole home cooking. Always great food at this chain. Fun store to shop on before you leave. Love the roast beef dinner and the cobbler.

The roast beef was mostly fat, cold potatoes and gravy, slow service,ordered a salad never got it, no drink refills. When we told the server that the roast beef was mostly fat she just looked at me. There are far to many good options in Traverse City, do not waste your time or money going to this restaurant.

I needed comfort food. I had stomach issues. Breakfast at dinner time was what I wanted. Finding this location was a challenge. It's on a hill behind a bank. The sign is hard to see, VERY unusual for a Cracker Barrel. Fortunately, the driveway from the Home Depot next door connects to the parking lot. I new exactly what I... More

Used to love eating here for a good brunch with friends. Unfortunately it seems the standards seem to have declined in the last few years. Used my be my husband's favorite place to eat breakfast. Not so much now.

I have eaten at Cracker Barrel all over this country and I think this one in Traverse City is the best. In fact, my group of retired Public Transportation Drivers frequent gather and meet here for breakfast We know what to expect and we get it.

So our waitress was really nice. However someone else delivered our food and forgot part of each of our meals. It felt like our server was the only one with 4 tables and one was a large table.

After coming to this Cracker Barrel a few times now, I can say that this branch does not rate well with the others we have eaten at from MI to FL. The service and food service is not up to par. One time we waited close to 30 min. To get our food. Another time they were out of a... More
