Comfort food

If you are not looking for anything overly fancy and just some comfort food this is a place to eat. We chose chicken & potato, and Ham & Vegetables. OK but would not be able to eat there every night. Great little gift store attached to the restaurant if you want to shop afterwards

We ate here on Thanksgiving and enjoyed a nice home-style meal. Our server was extremely friendly, as was the rest of the staff. This is our second year having our Thanksgiving meal here, and we were pleased, once again.

We eat here frequently. The restaurant is clean, the staff is friendly and attentive and the food is good plus it is reasonably priced. It tends to be busy especially at lunch so eating mid afternoon makes it a little easier. Located just off of I75 South.

My wife and I eat here quite a bit. They now have a new menu that is reduced in portion size which is great for folks in there sixties which includes us. Of course the price is reduced also. We love this new marketing plan and suspect it will do great things for this company to remain competitive in a... More

We visited Cracker Barrel for supper and had a delightful time. Our server Linda was very friendly and conversational. The food was tasty and what we ordered. There was no wait. We haven't been to this Cracker Barrel often, as there are so many restaurants in Venice, but we will definitely return.

Needs a General Manager who can run this establishment with integrity, Belittled employee in front of us. Will never return to this restaurant.

We visited this Cracker Barrel whilst we were staying at the Fairfield Inn and Suites in Venice in April 2014. We always love going for dinner at Cracker Barrel and this one didn't disappoint us at all. We were fortunate that it was so close to the hotel. When we arrived at the restaurant we were given a very warm... More

After a huge rain storm we had the good fortune to go to Cracker Barrel on Commercial Road up the street from Best Western. My wife had the BLT which she claims was one of the best she has ever had. I enjoyed the meatloaf with mashed and green beans that were delicious.

Get take out routinely...almost always something is missing or wrong..last time called ahead to order...was put on hold 3 times before they picked up and took our order..Definitely one of the worst managed Cracker Barrels in the system.

My wife, two grandsons, and I ate dinner at this establishment on Saturday night before their return to Chicago. We all chose their advertised special of $7.69 for dinner. The kids both had chicken and dumplings, 2 sides, biscuits and a drink. My wife hamburger steak and I had the catfish dinner. This deal is a smaller portion of a... More
