Cracker Barrel Comfort Food

Comfort food in a country atmosphere. The price is right, the food is good, and the gift shop is fun to browse in or buy from. I love the chicken and dumplings, and the pancake breakfast with cherries on top.

You cant beat a cracker barrel for breakfast, which I get even at dinner time. I've had a few of the dinners and I'm always satisfied. It isn't quite home cooking, but for being out on the road it it's pretty good.

Ordered meatloaf, creamed potatoes and steamed broccoli with cornbread. I'll have to admit the meatloaf was some of the best I've ever eaten. Service was excellent. Would not recommend chicken livers as my spouse found them too dry and fried a little too long. Otherwise excellent overall!

The service is very good, as are the menu items, and they have an elderly little 97 year old hostess named Rita that is still working and going strong... Very amacable., polite and good natured.. She is a bit of a legend.with all the locals. The restraunt is clean, well maintained and the food is good.

From the congenial greeter at the front door, the amazing 97-year-old seater, the friendly and efficient server, to the busy and supportive dining room manager, Brian/Bryan, this Valentine experience was exceptionally positive!

Cracker Barrel used to be one of our favorite family restaurants, but after today's visit, it will be a while before we go back again. I was really looking forward to some French Toast w/ maple syrup. Well, I found out that they NO LONGER CARRY MAPLE SYRUP?!? It's now called 100% Natural Syrup, whatever that is.

After a long day of travel, we headed to this restaurant for a quick meal. Waitress was extremely attentive although not overly friendly - refilling water without being asked and finally smiling after we complimented her on her attentiveness. I was glad to see healthy choices offered with calorie content - although my oven fried chicken was a bit dry... More

Sadly, we mainly eat at other cracker Barrels when we travel so do not eat in our home town a lot. I get reminded how nice the Ocala, highway 200 Cracker Barrel is each time we dine. Great long term wait staff.

While in the Ocala area my husband and I visited Cracker Barrel on a couple of occasions. We have never been disappointed from a small meal to a very hearty one. Server was very pleasant and helpful. Varied menu always has something to take care of your hunger pains. When in doubt, Cracker Barrrel.

I love this chain of Qracker Barrel restaurants mainly because one is never disappointed in the quality of the food and warm friendly service and the shopping ain't bad either! Breakfast, lunch or dinner are always good and they have a full varied menu which should please just about anyone. How can you not recommend this restaurant.
