“Worked well with kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

My wife and I treated our niece and her 3 young kids, while we were on a road trip (5/20/14). This is a casual, chain restaurant and "general" store. The parking is right at the shop. We only had to wait a couple of minutes to be seated, which is good because the kids wanted to buy everything in the store. Service was prompt. The server was very good with the kids, and she was helpful and friendly without being obnoxious. The menu is broad, including the kids' menu choices, and the food was good. The server came by often, which was especially good as the kids appreciated her help. The place was quieter than I expected, especially with the number of other families with children. We would eat there again.

“The Travelers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

The service and food was great: as always.
I just wish they would serve half portions. It is hard to take leftovers while traveling all day and they usually serve very large portions.

“Big mistake to go here”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014 via mobile

We choose to meet family at Cracker Barrel based on a standard of service and quality of food you expect from any Cracker Barrel. Both parties drove over an hour to meet. When we arrived, the store was packed so we were surprisedthat they quoted us only 20 minutes. We asked if that really was accurate which they confirmed and said definitely no longer than 25. 45 minutes and two screaming kids later we asked wait time, which we were told we would be seated in about 5 minutes. My husband left and bought McDonald's for our starving daughter. Finally over an hour later we were sat. Wish it would have gotten better. But we waited another 45minutes four cold eggs, ham, and pancakes. Waitress never returned to ask us how are food was. We had drinks that needed to be refilled. Finally our check was delivered. We entered at 11:40am and left at 2pm. Ridiculous! Service was aweful. Wait time was terrible. And food was near not edible. Save yourself time and money. Go somewhere else in Springfield. Eat at Cracker Barrel in a different town.
