CB is a constant for me when I travel and this one was, as usual, excellent. I have a go to meal, the fresh start sampler. Delicious yogurt parfait with seasonal fruit, eggs, bacon and a muffin. Never have I ever been disappointed at a CB. Friendly staff, quick service and always excellent food. I'm looking forward to coming back... More

They came out with a new menu a couple days ago, and in addition to the staple items they have new additions. They no longer serve turkey bacon, but still serve turkey sausage, along with regular bacon and pork sausage. I had the mixed berry special with blueberry pancakes with fresh strawberries and raspberry sauce; 2 eggs, and turkey sausage.... More

I have been to a lot of Cracker Barrels in my life and they tend to be hit or miss. This one the food and service were both good (although some of the food was a tad bland) so we were happy with our decision to try this one out. It was packed even at 2pm on a Saturday so... More

We were seated right away when we got there. Service was good. Food was hot. Waitress was friendly. Checkout was a bit hectic & we had to wait a bit, but I think it was a new person on the register that night. They didn't know how to do the gift card.

This restaurant serves country cooking. The wait staff is friendly. The place is clean. The shopping is fun! It can get noisy and the chairs are close together but all in all, we usually enjoy it.

There usually is a wait but if you're looking for a consistent and hardy meal then this is a good option.

I eat at Cracker Barrel on Independence Blvd. in Matthews on a regular basis and the food and service have been consistently good, so I was surprised at the disappointing service I received today. I called in a takeout order for lunch and ordered a vegetable plate with an iced tea partly because I knew that would take less time... More

We were in the area ready for dinner stopped up at this Cracker Barrel. What are the international foods like chicken and dumplings.

I went to this Cracker Barrel with a friend yesterday on Saturday morning. They are very busy for a weekend morning, as we had to wait 15 minutes for a seat, which wasn't too bad considering how crowded they were. Once seated, we placed our beverage and meal order. It came fairly timely. My breakfast was correct. I ordered the... More
