There is just something about Cracker Barrel that keeps us coming back for more. This time we dined at a Cracker Barrel that was just a few hundred yards from our hotel in Ocala.

As usual the Cracker Barrel delivers good quality and quantity food at this location. My only comment would be the chicken and dumplings meal was served on a small plate and somewhat spilling over the plate......get a larger plate! And these dumplings just aren't what you'd expect.....just flat pieces of dough. But the flavor keeps me coming back. Service was... More

Very organized and easy to get great meal and take it home for the whole family. My parents were elderly and not able to cook for the whole family any more, but this gave them a chance to have the family together, have a great meal and enjoy the day. We will definately use Cracker Barrel next year. It was... More

We've eaten there a lot over the years. Great service and alway handles the crowd well. Love at atmosphere. My recent visit they had a roaring fireplace going - it felt to nice and smelled so homey. Any food that is not up to par, gets taken back and replaced - never had an issue. Highly recommended no matter which... More

After a long drive, this was the first place we ate on our vacation stay in the area. I had the apple dumpling... Very good! Can't go wrong with any CB!

Never a big Cracker Barrel fan but kids like it. Went here for dinner and the service was horrible. Took forever to gr drunks then king time to come back and take our order. They weren't even that busy. Our food must have been shipped in because it took so long and then some of it was cold. Overall bad... More

Recently have the opportunity to eat dinner at this Cracker Barrel location. No doubt it's stood out as being one of the best I have ever eaten at within the entire chain. The service was simply marvelous and the food was cooked to order. I would highly recommend visiting this location.

Stopped for breakfast on our way to Ohio. Waited forever to even be acknowledged. Coffee was not brought or offered until we ordered it. Then had to wait longer. Amy N was our server and she was less than friendly. She never smiled. Food is average. Love the gift shop. Hostess was very sweet.
