“Not what I expected”
Reviewed July 12, 2012 via mobile

I had seen signs for Cracker Barrel all down the interstates and had assumed the they were just another homogenised fast food chain. Well, tried this one in Destin as we were looking for something quick and it was quite decent. The beef stew had meat and veg and flavour even if the gravy was a little bit gloopy. The blt was fine and the fries were hand cut. The house salad was pretty good. Service was attentive and the manager came round all the tables to make sure everything was ok. Would eat in this chain again.

“Late Breakfast, Perfect Brunch”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

When pancakes served tasted rubbery, heavy, luke-warm, and uncharacteristic of a Cracker Barrel Pancake, the manager was summoned to investigate. He, personally, removed our food, made fresh pancake batter, and grilled fresh pancakes for us. The fresh batch he personally brought to us was the "bomb", delectable, light, and delicious.

“More than we thought we would get!”
Reviewed May 14, 2012

We ate at the local Cracker Barrel in Destin Florida for breakfast and got a lot more than we bargained for!

The food was delivered quickly and arrived cooked to order and hot.

We ended up taking more than half of our portion back to the motel for breakfast the next day. I don't know if Cracker Barrell commonly makes pancakes so large, but I couldn't eat more than one.

The waitress gave us everything that we asked for and we were extremely pleased with our dining experience.
We will definitely return.
