The service was relatively fast, once we got seated; the Thanksgiving meal special was simply delicious and included both the drink and dessert for a very reasonable price. We ate at two... More

This Cracker Barrel, like all of the others in the huge chain of restaurants, was warm and inviting and filled with a million and one items to look at (and buy) while waiting to be called to be seated for your meal. Like all the others too, the staff are very cheery and chatty. The menu is huge and you... More

On vacation in the Venice area, Cracker Barrel is always a consistently good place for family style meals. Service at this location was excellent, food was as good as we have become used to.

We have driven by these businesses and always thought they are furniture stores or similar. Know we know they are family restaurant offering American style food and no alcoholic drinks. This one served tasty dishes at a very reasonable price.

We have been to many Cracker Barrels. Parking in the back for RVers is nice, very nice. Food was great; prices were great. Server missed her mark in many ways. Lunch vs. dinner serving size, dip for my chicken, more coffee. However, this will not prevent us from visiting this spot in the future.
