There was a restaurant in front of the Comfort Suites hotel that we stayed in so we walked over to it. We did not see a name for the place but there were people standing outside. When we went in and saw what we saw and smelled what we smelled we walked out.
We walked back to the hotel got into the car and drove to the Cracked Barrel Restaurant at exit 350 off of I-75. Had a nice meal, in pleasant surroundings although it was very noisy in the restaurant. But they were very crowded.

Met friends here for breakfast and everyone wanted something different. Fortunately, the menu had enough choices that everyone enjoyed their meal. Service was personable and attentive. Although they were busy, did not feel rushed at all.

The biscuits were overdone and the service was slow, but it was probably because they had too many customers for the size of the place.

My husband and I stopped here for supper. He ordered a salad with his meal. The fat free italian dressing (Marzetti brand) was served in a plastic packet. He couldn't open it, nor could I . Finally he got it open and it splattered all over his shirt and jacket. Our waitress checked by and he told her he wanted the manager to know what happened. She returned shortly and said the manager just LAUGHTED!!!! We will never be visiting this Cracker Barrel again . We didn't find any humor in this. Keep driving if this is how they treat customers!

Traveling back from the AKC-Eukanuba National Championship dog show and decided that Ocala would be a good first stop instead of paying high prices to eat in Orlando. As a bonus, Cracker Barrel always has easy parking and places to walk the dogs.

This chain is pretty consistent no matter where we have stopped over the years. Good breakfast and if you are a grit eater, those are good too. Got some great information about the local area and did some gift/souvenir shopping too.

As a head's up, if you are not from the south, remember there are snakes in Florida and some of them are poisonous. When we walked the dogs, I saw one live snake and one dead one in the parking lot. There were no issues with either for the dogs, but it is important to be aware of.

Met some wonderful folks going on a bus tour that shared their stories with us -- I love those encounters!

Would stop at this location again.
