Just wanted to let everyone know about the Monday Chicken dinner at this restaurant. For $5.99 you can't beat getting the comfort food that is just like mom used to make.

We went to the Cracker Barrel for breakfast with a group. They have lots of choices - but almost all include grits & gravy. The restaurant offers good food & friendly service. The atmosphere/decor is "Cracker Barrel Americana".

This location is very friendly and the food is delicious. It has a very home-like feel. Everyone is always so nice and helpful. There hasn't been something on the menu I haven't liked. The gift shop is fantastic, with lots to choose from. If your in town, you should definitely stop by.

This is a very nice place to eat when in Altoona. The food is always good no matter which CB you visit. Love the baby Lima beans.

Pancakes were delicious! Staff was very friendly, we bought lots of Penn State gear that was much more expensive at other places.

Not sure how or why but almost every Cracker Barrel seems to be hidden behind another business. But they always have People waiting.

This Cracker Barrel is pretty much like all the others. You can count on the consistency of the food at any of their locations.
