For us, Cracker Barrel has always been a dependable travel stop for a tasty, well-prepared country-cooked meal. At this location we were bitterly disappointed. One of our favorite dishes, the mustard greens, were very, very over-salted and almost dry. The service was extremely slow -- we sat unnoticed at our assigned table for almost 1/2 hour before a waitress, not... More

It's a good thing our motel in Harrisburg didn't offer free breakfast, otherwise we wouldn't have stopped here!! We always like to stop at a Cr. Barrel, or two, when on holidays. When we arrived around 8am, it was quiet, but then more people came in, so it became busy later. As usual, fast, efficient, friendly service....we never have a... More

The chicken fried steak and gravy were very good, and the turnip greens and tomato/cucumber/onion salad were excellent. The fried okra was pretty good but could have been crispier. Service was good.
