Dined with 2 others. I ordered that Grandpa's breakfast which comes with 2 pancakes. I took the pancakes home only to discover the next day that the one on the bottom was burnt on one side and burnt side was faced to the bottom to deliberately conceal. If the burnt part wasn't concealed I would have had it replaced before leaving the restaurant. Not edible. So disappointed. I always liked the pancakes there. Not anymore. But it's terrible service for a cook to know they prepared the meal poorly and to still send into be served.

What on EARTH was that Thanksgiving dinner?!?!?! Literally canned green beans, stuffing was MUSH, how is it hard to make stuffing??? Mashed sweet potatoes were more like a soup!!! And the turkey?? The turkey was the lowest quality of meat I’ve had in a restaurant ever. I can’t believe they were feeding people this, this is the kind of food they would serve in prison. The only good food was the buttermilk biscuits! Such a rip off. I am shocked there aren’t more bad reviews about the food, it blows my mind. I’ll never go here again and I’m making sure to tell everyone I know how disgusting that Thanksgiving dinner was!

My wife and I are regular patrons of Cracker Barrel. One of our favorite places to each breakfast at. But today my brothers and I went in for dinner. We ordered chicken and dumplings. Not sure what the dumplings were because they were flat pieces of tasteless mush. Absolutely the worst! Somebody at Cracker Barrel has to be aware that dumping should be breaded inside when cooked correctly. I don’t believe the dumplings we were served were cooked incorrectly by the cooks but were cooked as they intended them to be. I hope someone would revisit the process for how Cracker Barrel is cooking their dumplings and find an acceptable edible recipe to replace what they are currently doing.

We are regular diners at the Cracker Barrel in California, MD and since we didn’t have our kids or grandkids this Thanksgiving, I thought I would treat my wife to what we thought would be a GREAT Thanksgiving dinner! We went to dinner at around 3pm and were seated almost immediately! We had a wonderful waitress who took great care of us and my wife ordered the turkey dinner but was extremely disappointed ? the worse meal that we have experienced at Cracker Barrel. One slice of turkey and gravy and no substitutions for the other sides were allowed. The sweet potato pie was mushy at best, the corn bread stuffing was covered with gravy with onions. Her meal was a great disappointment ?

Went in to place a to go order 11/6. Waited to place my order. They were out of hash brown casserole. Which was a bummer. I ordered 2 ham biscuit and chicken fried chicken. When I got my order i had a box with two slices of ham rolling around and Chicken with no gravy. I waited ten minutes for them to bring out the biscuits. The gentleman standing next to me waited 30 minutes for his order to be corrected when he got there at 5:30 to pick up his order. The manager brought out the biscuits and apologized for the delay they had staffing issues. Staffing issues do not equate to the orders being messed up. I would recommend placing taking take out orders with them.

Our new waiter was fantastic but I wasn't able to catch his name. Hash brown casserole had way to much pepper in it but he was right on top of everything. He worked the round table were we sat at about 5 pm tonight so you know he he wasFood: 4/5

If no stars were an option that would be my rating. Service was absolutely horrible. I didn't get extra gravy for the dry mashed potatoes ?. Why do I need to explain why I needed 2 to go boxes. Won't be coming back

The food was good and the service was excellent. However, the unkempt condition of the restaurant detracted from an otherwise good dining experience. I was surprised at the numerous items of trash (napkins, straw wrappers, etc.) lying on the dining room floor. A table behind us went uncleared after the diners departed for our entire 35 minute visit. Lastly, the paper towel dispenser in the Men's Room was empty.

The food was ok but the service was fabulous. The young man (Tyler) who waited our table was very accommodating and extremely polite. The restaurant was very clean.

I arrived with 6 coworkers for breakfast around 0730 on Tuesday. We were sat promptly at a large round table. The waitress was efficient and took care of us in a timely manner. All of the drinks and food came out accurately. We all got separate checks which didn't seem to cause an issue. Some of the breakfast meat was rather dry in my "Grandma's breakfast platter". Other than that it was good. I ordered a togo meal for my husband who was stuck teleworking back at the hotel. The order was packaged properly and accurate. You can't beat the prices. The store was clean and well stocked.

The worst! Always pleasant people, but this location's food and service was truly one of the worst dining experiences of my life. Order completely wrong, even though it was verified, food cold in center or completely overdone (twice reheat), and waiter didn't know the menu (brought out appetizer on lunch plate). I struggled to pay, knowing it was a complete waste of money.
