The food was excellent. Chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and green beans. The desert was homemade (on the premises) butter pecan ice cream and peach praline pie. It was peach season, and apparently there is a big crop here, which leads me to the store next door. You must go in there and see!! If you are a foodie,... More

IT is a big restaurant and the service friendly. Had the all you can eat chicken, it was good as well as the sides. There is a big market there where you can get all kinds of things. There was a jazz band playing outside and many people were there in there lawnchairs. You could also order food outside or... More

We went to Eckerts with some friends who live in the area, and found a really nice country restaurant. They food was really good, and the menu was extensive, with a wide selection of home style country cooking. The servers were very friendly and offered their recommendations and suggestions. If you're interested in good old home cooking, I'd highly recommend... More

We certainly had a large party, but we were literally the only people there, minus one couple. Even so, it took over 90 minutes from seating to paying the bill. Our waitress had to return and ask everyone what they ordered to create the bills, we were constantly out of items, and everything was slow. I would understand if the... More

We drove through the highway construction, through East St. Louis, and through the countryside to Belleville, Il. to visit Eckert's. Our search was for peaches - the winter of 13/14 had put them in short supply. Our first stop was the restaurant. The menu looked good and the service was fast and friendly. But...my wife doesn't react well to MSG.... More

Folks have been telling us to come since we moved here from Norther Virginia. We arrived for a lunch meal on a Saturday. The place is clean but just a very basic seating and ambience. We ordered to fried chicken which comes with corn, green beans and mashed potatoes. The chicken was very good. The sides are very plain and... More

The new, enormous country store is pretty cool! Look for everything from an impressive wine selection, to cheeses imported from around the world, to local products and produce. This is not a bargain place, but would be hard pressed to find many of their offerings at any other store in the region. Tip: don't miss the frozen custard stand! Big... More

We went with three generations of family so my one and a half year old daughter could join the easter egg hunt. My daughter had a great time -- before the hunt, she got to pet baby ducks, chicks and rabbits, and afterward, she got her face painted. The food was a good dose of American home cooking. I highly...
