We travel quite a bit and I love eating at Cracker Barrel when the restaurant isn't packed. We stopped for lunch at about 4pm on Monday and were seated in a room by ourselves~all the other tables were empty. We all (three of us) ordered the lemonade that was advertised near the hostess station. It was very good, but apparently one refill is all that was allowed...the waitress didn't offer to refill the glasses again.
I ordered the Country fried steak and it was so well done that I could barely eat it. We hadn't eaten all day so I didn't really have a choice. The hash brown casserole that I usually love was also hard and crispy. My sister ordered the Baked Chicken Breast lunch special and it had 3 small bones in it. She also ordered hashbrown instead of stuffing, but received stuffing. She reminded the waitress and the hashbrown casserole was brought and hers was very hard as well.
We ordered an apple dumpling with ice cream and it was very good. But we waited 15 minutes for a small box to put the rest of the large dumpling in to take home. By the time we finally left, our waitress had many other tables and we were left with no drinks waiting for our bill.
I'm used to good service and food at Cracker Barrel so this meal was a disappointment. Next time we are in northern Ohio, we'll stop at Der Dutchman instead.
