Had the grilled cheese with a side of coleslaw. American and mozzarella cheese on Texas toast. Left stuffed and satisfied. We took pie back for later, coconut cream with 3 inch meringue. Very good. The food was a little long to arrive, but you can enjoy the rolls and honey butter while you wait.

This place is awful! Terrible service! Food tasted like it came out of a can! Can't believe it is rated in the top 10 restaurants in Marion. There are plenty of good to great restaurants besides this place. They should stick to pies and bread. That was the only thing edible. Add the poor service, and this place is a... More

If you like comfort food, you have to eat at Honeybakers. If I hadn't read other Trip Advisor reviews I most likely would never have had supper in this quirky restaurant. I had the meat loaf hot plate with mashed potatoes, green beans and a salad and it was as good or better than mom's. The warm dinner rolls are... More

Have eaten here several times and have always had a good meal. Fresh baked bread and pies. Unusual items on the menu. You won't be disappointed.

Chose this place for lunch based on previous reviews. Delicious yeast rolls with honey butter, various sandwich & southern comfort food options. My daughter had BBQ nachos, & I had a grilled cheese on grilled home baked bread with bacon & tomato. Fabulous, and way more than I could eat. Will definitely visit again!

I have been to Honeybakers several times. Each time the staff was friendly, food warm and tasty and the check was never as big as the servings. The food is only part of it. The rolls with honey butter are great. I have heard some people complain but we love them. The deserts are also AMAZING! They are works of... More

I had lunch with a friend here today and it was excellent! The restaurant itself is kind of hard to find as it is at the end of a strip mall off of the highway. It is a quaint little diner that serves good home cooked meals daily. You'll get started with homemade rolls and butter. I had the country... More

Just had a great lunch. Waitress, Teresa recommended the Cajun Turkey sandwich. It was huge (could only eat half) and was a little on the spicy side but not overdone. I always get one of their salads, which are always good, and way too much for one meal, but decided to try something else and was not disappointed. Hubby had... More

I had eaten here once before and they have good country style home good, similar to what you might find at a cracker barrel or a Bob Evans. Their pies are amazing with ingredients flown in from other countries. They honestly might be the best pies you'll ever taste. So why the low rating? Well the second time I went... More
