I generally like Cracker Barrel. I love their breakfasts. The pancakes are fantastic. But this particular Cracker Barrel was like a salt mine. My wife and I ordered the Sunday Chicken Dinner. Boneless chicken dipped in batter. The chicken was extremely salty. We also ordered...More

Having enjoyed many Cracker Barrel restaurants in many states, I was surprised and disappointed by the old, dry disappointed entrees and breads. Even the pancakes were dry and tasteless. The staff, however, was great. This location needs better results from the kitchen.

My family has visited the Cracker Barrel numerous times during our frequent stops in State college. The food is always good and very reasonably priced. Great value.

My wife loved her fish and three sides. I thought my Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad was good, but wondered about the portion. While I had no complaints and I have to say better than average, they have room for improvement.
