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

Great for a good meal and a break from driving. Welcoming staff and food at reasonable prices. Some nice items in the store section of the building.

we have been here before and it was great. the last two times we were here it was terrible. the service was not very good and the food was over cooked and dried out. we came at 6 pm and maybe that made a difference, I am not sure

This was my first time ever visiting a Cracker Barrel. At first I thought that we were at the wrong place when I saw that it was a store and had rocking chairs for sale!! We ate breakfast here and it was one of the best I have ever had. I wish I had thought to take pictures!! My fiance... More

I like Cracker Barrel because you can eat relatively healthy if you choose. Although they do have lots of "comfort food" as well. You can enjoy a game of checkers while sitting in a rocking chair before or after your meal. lots of old relics to look at also while sitting at your table.You can expect a wait time if... More

Cracker barrel is our favourite for breakfast. This one is a little difficult to find as the resident association made them remove the sign. Our GPS found it without problem and it was well wort the visit. Friendly staff and great food at bargain prices - what more could you ask.

We love it here for breakfast. The pancakes are delicious, as are the omelets. Coffee is great, with endless refills. Gift shop keeps the kids busy of your waiting for a table.

I will admit that having grown up in the South, I am biased towards Cracker Barrel. What's not to like, country fried steak, mashed potatoes, turnip greens, pinto beans, chicken and dumplings, I could go on and on. Oh, and the sweet tea is delicious! The service is efficient and friendly, the portions hearty, and the price very reasonable. My... More

We have eaten here on several occasions, and the food is always good; similar to home cooking. The portions are pretty decent for the price. This visit the food took longer than usual and the service was on the slow side, however, so we deducted a star.
