“Okay for what it is”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

This is not authentic Southern food, folks. Anyone who thinks it is has never had real Southern food. THey do a decent job at consistency, but this is cookie cutter operation with a lot of frozen foods as re-heats.

“Love Cracker Barrel”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Very consistent with all other Cracker Barrels. The food was good and the store is always fun to shop. Sometimes you just need comfort food.

“Good food and service, and not much of a wait.”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

This is a very nice Cracker Barrel. We had not planned to eat there but we arrived in town about 8 PM Friday evening and headed for a Mexican place that was sort of out of the way, and found there was at least a 20 minute wait there. Then we went back down the strip to the Outback to find a 70 minute wait there. So then we went to the Cracker Barrel and found a 5 minute wait and it turned out to be a very good series of events as the food and service were excellent and it wasn't expensive and it was pretty quick.

“Excellent service & food”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

I don't think I've ever dined at a restaurant in Gainesville and not received excellent service and good food. This Cracker Barrel was close to our hotel and I-75 and excelled at both service and food quality.
