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

This CB is great. Food and service were top notch. Yes, I read the story regarding the gentleman who was fired for giving away a muffin but this doesn't change my opinion of the restaurant. Regardless of what restaurants do with their left over food at the end of the day it doesn't change the fact that what this man... More

The food and service at this restaurant were both excellent. The quality of the service was really nice. Also, the array of menu selections with some new additions and prices were great.

Your spin doctors did a fine job condemning your former employee and you must pay them well! What really counts is public opinion and right now your establishment sucks big time. Hopefully everyone will stop coming and the manager will be out of a job also. Karma it's a you know what!
