A Typical Cracker Barrel Restaurant

This is a good place for a family meal. I personally think there are too many carbs and not enough greens/vegetables on the menu. My grandson loved it, and cleaned his plate, and was looking for seconcs.

Always look for a Cracker Barrel when we are on the road traveling. You can always expect a good selection and a good meal here. Food is always hot and seasoned just right and I also enjoy shopping for seasonal décor items at the front.

Was Lunch time but wanted Breakfast and this Marion, Illinois restaurant did not disappoint. Big fluffy biscuits really taste as if made from scratch with eggs cooked to order just as requested.

We were the only couple in the resteraunt, which was nice, but you would think our order would be right- 30.00 for breakfast only for parts of our order to be forgotten

Very busy on a Saturday night but nonetheless the service was prompt and friendly. I wonder if the serves are getting a tad smaller though. I've been to a few Cracker Barrels lately and there seems to be a slight difference.

You can't go wrong if you want a hearty meal, light meal or breakfast for dinner. The billboards help keep track of the mile posts to the nearest exit. There is always a decent hotel around too if one gets tired.

It is what it is. Good breakfast meal place. Service is ok. Real loud place. Better to go early, and stay away from Sunday until after the church crowds

All Cracker Barrels are not the same. This was a very good one. It was late night when we arrived but received attentive service and comforting food. Loved the egg sandwich and chili.
