Honey baker's - drop by for lunch if you are in Marion

This is my second review of this restaurant. Went there a couple of years ago and found it even better this time. We had excellent service and the owner dropped by and chatted with our hosts. The food was very tasty: chef salad, chicken & dumplings, and sandwiches were all well-received. The... read more

I lived in southern Illinois for ten years, and ate at dozens of different restaurants. Honeybakers is easily in my top 5 places to eat in the 618. Their rolls are great. Their barbecue is awesome. The meatloaf minis wrapped in bacon are off the charts. And their wide array of desserts never disappoints. The prices are reasonable, the service... More

A little inconvenient not being open on Sunday or Monday but the homemade food is worth the wait. Rolls and honey butter are out of this world. Portions are great too

This was our first visit here. Service was below expectations. Food was nothing special at all. We went there for ribs. They only do ribs on certain nights. We should have left.

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
