I have to be honest here, when Cracker Barrel is good its good, and when its bad its very bad. We have two near us, and this one seems to be more consistent than the one ( 484 by 75) I have given up on. ( undercooked fish, wrong food, cold food...) This one seems to be at least better... More

Very friendly staff. For a great breakfast or a warm tasty dinner, Cracker Barrel is a place for both. Love the unique gift store also. Family friendly.

I eat at these as often as I can. Comfort food at its finest. Breakfast is a feast with as many choices as possible.

Stopped in late on a Friday after traveling and sightseeing all day. Place was still packed at 8:30 but service was pretty quick and Brittany was very pleasant and efficient. Standard Cracker Barrel food, consistent and generous. It was a lot to eat late but made it easy to sleep on a full tummy!

Wife and I had dinner here one evening on our overnight stop in Ocala. The restaurant is within walking distance of a number of hotels in the area. We try to eat dinner at Cracker Barrel when we travel, because we know that we can expect a wholesome, quality product at a reasonable price. We were not disappointed at this... More

Very typical Cracker Barrel but service for us was a bit slow. My menu did not have a breakfast sheet which I prefer at lunch time rather than a full dinner meal. A couple seated after us got their meals before us and I noticed they both had a stack of pancakes.

As I was staying next door at one of the motels, this was an obvious choice for a meal. I could walk to the restaurant and not have to worry about the traffic. Seating was quick, and I was offered my choice of the breakfast or dinner menu. I opted for breakfast, and the eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy and... More

This is an excellent family establishment to stop and eat. The food is excellent and they also serve breakfast items all day long. The sausage gravy and biscuits are the best!

You stop here because you expect consistent food & service across the entire Cracker Barrel chain regardless of what Interstate stop you exit and this one is no different. It looks like any other Cracker Barrel outside & inside which I suppose is comforting to their loyal clientele but it is getting kind of stale. Their food is consistently generic... More

We stopped at this particular CB while traveling last week and while it was easily accessible off I-75, the service was erratic at best and the food was disappointing. My meatloaf was burned, they were out of some items, & the side salad I ordered was brought out w/the entire meal. Normally CB is consistently fast and good; on this... More
