First stop on the road for a visit north, got the great breakfast we hoped for. Busy location, but no glitches. Found some good value items in gift shop.

We've dined at a dozen Cracker Barrel restaurants (at least) across the eastern US and have had a consistently good experience. We can always count on a good meal at Cracker Barrel when road tripping. The Gainesville restaurant was exceptional though. Our server was amazing.

Recently came to this wonderful establishment with my beautiful girlfriend and I was very impressed. ''Twas the typical Cracker Barrel experience however, this particular restaurant was missing one key thing: a dwarf. Some may be wondering why I say this. Our Cracker Barrel back home has a little dwarf woman running around and seeing her puts a smile on my... More

The food was good, and the service was excellent. Even though we got there right before close they still took great care of us and did not act put out for it.

Cracker Barrel is very consistently good. It's nothing fancy but it's comforting, homey food at a reasonable price. This one was no exception.

We spent the night at the Country Inn in Gainesville and Cracker Barrel is located right behind the hotel. Very easy to walk to. Nice you don't have to get back in the car! I had the clam chowder which was very tasty. The warm blackberry cobbler with ice cream is a just trying! Of course Cracker Barrel meals are... More

This Cracker Barrel is way to busy to give really good service. They do a good job with what they work with.

We were not thrilled with the free breakfast options at our hotel, so we went to Cracker Barrel. It was everything we expected, good food, good service, and quick turn-around.
