We usually drive over to Sanford on the weekend to eat breakfast here. They have a good variety of food and its always good.
You definitely what to get here early as it gets crowded really fast around brunch time.

Visited this location on Saturday, Nov 3rd for a friends birthday. There were 10 people in our group. The restaurant was only 1/4 full.

Informed the hostess of the size of our party and it took them 30 minutes to put 3 tables together. Finally seated, we ordered. There were two waitress attending our table. One half of the guests were served within about 20 minutes. Another guest was served about 10 minutes later, then two more guests in another 15-20 minutes. By this time the first guests had completed their meals and we still had two others (who only ordered salads), who had not been served. The issue was repeatedly brought to the attention of the waitresses and finally the hostess, then the manager. Finally the salads were delivered. I guess they had to grow the lettuce.

Hot meals which were ordered were not hot. Gravy which was on some of the meals was cold and like glue. I have never been to a Cracker Barrel with this experience. Will not return.

Cracker Barrels from here to Billings, MT, to Janesville, WI, and many places in between have been a joy over the years. Not so much any more. A recent visit for lunch found an uncrowded dining room at the height of lunch, so-so staff and bland food, undersized portions (compared to the past) and a general letdown all around. One highlight was asking twice for a takeout box and having to go to the kitchen to get one myself.

We have been eating here on and off since 2006 when we first took the auto train(to Disney)We now use the train 2 times a year, to get my son to college in Aug, and to bring him back home in May. This was the first Cracker Barrel we ever ate at in 2006, because we used to live in Pa and there were none of these in our area. The food was fresh, hot, delicious and made from scratch. Since eating at this location we are now hooked on Cracker Barrel’s. Service today was outstanding. See you in May

my husband and I had lunch today when my husband chocked on a large stem in the green beans, our waiter was no help and went to get a manager who came over and said “huh, that’s weird “ and walked away saying “let me know if you need anything else, we were a little disappointed with the lack of concern at all.. while paying the cashier said “ well at least you didn’t die” wow
