Passing through Marion we decided to get a "home cooked meal" and this was not. Arby's would have been better. The food was bland and pricey. The salad dressing tasted sour and the lemon pie had more of a custard texture to it. An open faced rosary beef sandwich is 10.99, I think that's a bit much. About the only... More

The food was very good. We had the pork nachos, the meatloaf minis, and the country meal w/ham. The portions were huge. As others have said, the rolls were some of the best you'll find anywhere. My entree came with a side salad which had nice greens (no iceberg lettuce), tomato, cheese, cucumber and croutons. The poppy seed dressing was... More

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
