We were on a road trip and were hungry so we stopped at Cracker Barrel. I regret what we ate that day. We had pork chop that was dry and overcooked. It was old. I am sure that the green beans and mash potatoes that are from a can, and they were charged as if they were fresh from a... More

I was first introduced to Cracker Barrel in the early 1980's. The food and service was wonderful. As they have grown it has gone downhill. I have eaten here many times because we are here often for visits at Shands Hospital and I want something besides fast food.We stopped and had breakfast for our night time meal. Scrambled eggs were... More

We were on our way home from a trip to the coast when we were passing thru Gainesville. We decided to try Cracker Barrel because we wanted something besides fast food. We both had the chicken fried steak lunch. It was not the best nor the worst we have had. The salad was fresh. You have to ask for gravy... More

Stopped in as I was in town for my niece at UF . Had three different waitresses and hashbrowns were cold but I've been up since five so didn't care. Clean, nice store lots of parking ... kinda hidden from main road!

I will often go to a Cracker Barrel Restaurant when I am traveling, as they are almost always the same for quality food at a very reasonable price. They specialize in offering very wholesome "Down Home" cooking which is basically the same as what many of us became used to as home style cooking.

We went to Cracker Barrel at about 7:15 pm and were greeted with a smile and good service. Food was good, portion was reasonably sized and service was good. We had a meat loaf dinner and both the dinner and sides were good and served hot. For a few dollars more than the fast food hamburger restaurants you get a... More

Was going out to dinner with business group so just wanted a small, quick meal. Seated immediately, small sald was more than enough. Met all expectations.

Nothing special, stopped in for dinner on way to Tampa. Husband had his usual Country Fried steak along with mash potatoes, white gravy corn and green beans. I for one tried the Roast beef for a change. If you advertise that the roast beef is slow roasted for 14 hours I should have no problems cutting it with my fork,... More
