We have eaten at several crackers barrels. Several states. We always find the place neat clean and people very pleasant. Food is home style. Love the decorations . Home stead. Huge fire places. The shops are great. Good sales too. Food is good . Enough for left overs. Deserts are great. Lots of baked goods.

Had lunch with an old friend here where comfort food reigns.One of my favorite places to go for breakfast anytime they are open. He had the Caesar Salad with Blackened Chicken and I had my favorite --the Beans and Greens and Cornbread Combo. Neither entree disappointed. Attentive Service and a warm homey atmosphere. .

This location is tucked away but almost within walking distance of our hotel. Everything you'd expect from a Cracker Barrel. Great tasting home style food and antiquated decor. The service was a little off tonight but would not let this deter us from returning.

We met friends at this location while visiting the area. The service was very friendly and attentive, the food is what you expect from Cracker Barrel, good at a decent price. The only complaint I have is that when asked the server told me the item I ordered did not have black pepper in it but when it arrived the... More

Always enjoy having breakfast, lunch or dinner. Love their country atmosphere, their hot dishes and their prices. Highly recommended.

We arrived and were seated - I went to sit down, my husband stopped me just in time - the chair was wet, not a little, a lot of water on the seat. Then we sat and we waited, we waited some more, then a little longer....we watched a waitress help a table that seated after us....and there was another... More

We all know Cracker Barrel is a quality place to eat. Especially if you want country comfort food. The Venice location was an average CB experience. ..and that is good to very good. The food was good and plentiful. The was staff were pleasant. I would go again.

Have been here a couple of times and never disappointed! My all time favorite southern comfort restaurant since their food is beyond words and they have a nice gift shop with an assortment of items for just about anyone! The food tastes just like mama used to make and the staff is always friendly and helpful!

I was on my way from Tampa to the Everglades and stopped here for dinner. Great food and great service. It was a typical cracker barrel. Great eats and a nice little store.

We went to Cracker Barrel around 11am on a Saturday. I ordered lunch, the rest of the family ordered breakfast. This was the second time we have eaten at a Cracker Barrel in a week. The service was slow, and the food was average. I ordered chicken and dumplings. They came on a small plate. Strangely there was more chicken... More
