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

We tried the Campfire Chicken Dinner this evening. It was Chicken cooked in foil with corn and potatoes. It was a bit bland. As always, the staff was friendly.

We stopped by for dinner after checking into the hotel accross the street. The food is good and the prices are right. Chicken and dumplings for $7.99. Can't beat that a gift shop is attached. A lot of old fashined things from when we were kids. Candy etc, games and many other things. You have to go through the gift... More

Good food, service was excellent. The manager even came to check up on us. The store was fun to shop. For breakfast, this was a fair price, though not cheap.

We're we in town to visit, but came after the snowbirds usually go back north. We visit Cracked Barrels a lo, and stop at several on our drives from Virginia to Venice, FL. This store matches the corporative standards. Food and service was good. Even though it was the off season we showed up at 11:30 AM on a Sunday... More

Second time ever my visit to the Cracker Barrel as my previous visit was to the Daytona location during the 500, and I was impressed by their handling of the 500 crowd influx with their positive attitudes and enjoyed my meal and the people so much I had to write on their behalf. I didn't expect the same kind of... More
