Stopped for breakfast with a group of 10. Everyone liked their meals, no complaints. Our server was prompt and efficient.

I love good southern home-cooking so have been a great fan of any Cracker Barrel since the chain began! Can remember using the Cracker Barrel locations map to chart our road trips from Hilton Head to Dallas...to eat plus keep those audio books playing in the car to pass the time. Now, we frequent the Barrels in Oldsmar and Lakeland often....always pleased! On Memorial Day, the Lakeland Barrel was slammed but we were seated quickly to our delight. Our server was very gracious, organized and skilled. But the arrival of our entrees was as slow as molasses. Guests around us were getting their food and finishing...but our table was bare. Even the manager stopped by to reassure us that the meal was coming but after 35+ minutes (and a zillion tee peg games) we had almost given up. Finally, lunch was served. The reason I mention this experience is that there was obviously something going wrong thus we should have at least received our "biscuits and cornbread" in advance during this unusually slow delivery time. Offer some quick house salads...something instead of "sorry" if the kitchen can't expedite a family's order on time. As mentioned, everyone around us was eating and leaving before we saw a morsel. But we still love you Cracker Barrel and if you added black-eyed peas to your men..we would love you even more!

We thought we were meeting two relatives for lunch...but they said there would be 11 more...when I told the hostess, she didn't blink an eye when I said 9 more were coming... they set up a corner table in the back ...our waited Eric seated everyone (high chairs when needed) and served the meal perfectly...he paid close attention to refills and all got perfect service...he asked if anyone wanted ice cream to go with the cake they brought...got dessert plates for all...brought a knife to cut the cake ...we took pictures outside of babies never seen before...yep...this is indeed a special Cracker Barrel

Stopped here for lunch coming from Ormond Beach back to Tampa and we each enjoyed our choices-shrimp, haddock, ham and a burger. We have never been disappointed with the quality control whether in Lakeland Florida or Bay City Michigan. We always enjoy the corn, apples, cole slaw, carrots, corn bread and okra. Our server was very kind with several requests from the four of us for to go cups, extra napkins, and a box for the corn bread muffins.

Usual cracker barrel ambience , down home feeling. Good food at a reasonable price with the staff making the difference between stores. In this case staff very helpful and pleasant.
