This restaurant is typical of all the Cracker Barrel restaurants. It has good food, generous portions and decent prices. It is also usually crowded so you might have to wait awhile before you are seated. But the food is delicious and worth the wait.

We hadn't been to Cracker Barrel in a while, and this was close to our hotel so we were eager to go there after a day of travel. The kids' menu items seemed pretty skimpy to us especially the grilled chicken. The grilled chicken on our salad was pretty skimpy as well. Our server was not friendly either.

We had the Haddock Fish dinner, really excellent. Even though the restaurant was very busy, we got great service and a superb fish dinner. We have spent more and gotten less, a real value. After driving 400 miles, and eating sandwiches to save time, it was a real treat to get such good service and excellent food. It was close... More

Cracker Barrel is one of my favorite restaurants. This one in Marion, IL did not disappoint. Despite arriving at 6pm on a busy Saturday night, we were seated right away. The waitress was friendly and prompt taking our order. The manager stopped by to chat, noticing we were from out of town and was friendly as well. Our food was... More

Your typical Cracker Barrel. But like most I have been to, very dependable for a home style cooked meal. Service was good and everyone was friendly. It was nice having it next to the best western I stayed at.

Your typical Cracker Barrel establishment. Fun to play games while waiting for your food. I always enjoying shopping afterwards in the gift shop. Had the Pork Chops with a Baked Potato and Garden Salad. Good dinner, good price. Wasn't super busy so food came out quickly.

The Marion Cracker Barrel is like most other Cracker Barrels. One can depend on finding the kind of food one is expecting. The food was good, the service good and the price was right.

My husband and I live in the area where this Cracker Barrel is located, so we have visited the restaurant quite often. It used to be a favorite place to eat, but the quality of service and food has declined to the point that I don't think we will eat there again. We arrived for dinner at 7:15 on July... More

We got enough food from our late afternoon meal to feed the two of us the next two nights in our motel. The special Thanksgiving meal was well-made and abundant. Staff was friendly. We did not have to wait for a table even on this busy holiday..
