While staying in Manasota Key Florida we were looking for a place to eat and my kids wanted to try the local Cracker Barrell. It had a very eclectic decor with the walls lined with all kind of antiques and old fashioned things. The server was really friendly and so were the locals we talked to. The menu itself had tons to choose from including breakfast (even though we were there at lunch). The portions were huge and the price was reasonable too. Everyone seemed happy with their food and it the entire area we saw in Venice was very nice too.
