Had not visited one in years...forgot how friendly the waiters are. Breakfast menu has plenty to choose from even gluten free.

Felt like they were herding people through rather than making a homey family meal which you are accustomed to from Cracker Barrel . Biscuits didn't come until after salad was finished. Both dinner orders were mixed up. Had to wait 10 minutes for 1 side. Asked for extra napkins and never received them

Everything is pretty good. If you are traveling, & don't wish for fast food try CB. The specials are the go to's. We ordered 2 fish dinner specials that came with their famous corn bread & a good size vegetable sides to go. We took it back to our room where we could leisurely enjoy it while watching our TV...

The Cracker Barrel is our favourite American restaurant chain but we were very disappointed on this occasion. Initially, we had to wait longer than normal for our orders to be taken and then we had to forty minutes for our meal to be served! While, we waited we were not given any explanation for the delay and no apology when... More

What an amazing dining experience. Always great food and service. Lovely rustic decor and a wonderful shopping area with great snacks, clothing and nick nacks. Always a family favorite.

My family and I stopped in for breakfast at this Cracker Barrel location. There was a minimum wait, but not as bad as the normal "Cracker Barrel" wait time. We all ordered different breakfast items, which were all good. I had the french toast with blackberries which was a generous portion. My son had the country fried steak with eggs... More

Anytime we travel the Central Florida-Florida Panhandle corridor, we stop at this cracker barrel. They are always friendly here even during holiday rush and college football season. The food is standard yummy homecooked fare. I always like to shop in their store for unique gifts. Good stuff!

The grilled catfish with hash brown casserole and cheese eggs was delicious. My son enjoyed his waffle with blueberries and chocolate shavings. Of course I always find something in the country store. This location stays quite busy.
