just what you'd expect, and that's a good thing

Just down the road from our motel (the best western plus ambassador). We went about 7:30 pm on mother's day night. No crowds, sufficient staff so we could be attended to appropriately, and the service, food, and atmosphere were at the usual level of good that a Cracker Barrel promises and provides.

Extremely efficient staff and well cooked food. Very handy for I 75 ( the Jacaranda exit I believe), and for the Holiday Inn Express, the staff were charming, polite and helpful.

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

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. The friendly staff and management explained that because it was the night before Easter, they were exceptionally busy and that it would take a few minutes... More

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!
