“Out of Daily Special again”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

Went to lunch on Tuesday for the daily special (Chicken/Dressing). I was informed they might be out, in which they were. The time was almost 1pm. This happens too often, manager needs to get it together. They some training.

“Cracker Barrel, not what we are used to seeing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

We visit CB usually once or twice a month, either in Sanford or Daytona. We decided to stop in Saturday evening for dinner. The hostess was great and had our coffees brought out right away. One waitress asked if we needed more time, and we asked for a few more minutes, but we waited quite a while for her to come back. Finally she returned and my wife ordered a Rueben on Sourdough bread and I opted for the chicken and rice. When they brought out the Rueben, it was on rye with a side of sourdough bread? I was surprised the waitress didn't catch the mistake. She took it back and then returned with the meat on the sourdough and only one half slice of COLD cheese on it. The sandwich was cold but my wife was afraid to send it back and ate half anyway. Having been in food service, I was shocked they had not simply made a new sandwich instead of serving us the less than pleasing food.

I had not had haddock since I left upstate NY. It was cooked to perfection. Thanks for offering this food item.

“standard Cracker Barrel food but nice place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2012

Have been here 3-4x when visiting relatives in the area. service was very good. lots of good comfort food, Southern style. the gift store part is really cheesy, as in all CB's, but a good way to kill time if you are on your way out and waiting for your people to finish and be ready to leave

“A great CB, convenient to the airport...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012

We stayed one night in a nearby (right next door) hotel, the night before a flight out of Sanford. CB was adjacent. We enjoy most CB's, and this one proved to be wonderful. The staff was more than helpful and friendly. The manager came by 2 or 3 times to chat and make suggestions. We chose to have breakfast, and had selections we had never tried before, thanks to his recommendations. Everyone was just so darn friendly. The gift shop was well stocked, the bathrooms clean, and as always, the price is right. Highly recommend. Right off of I-4. Large parking lot, as always.
