We went to cracker Barrel on 7/10/14 and had no complaints! It was my first time eating at a Cracker Barrel and I have to say, I loved it! Down home southern type of food. I had the chicken and dumplings and my fiance had the sampler plate of meatloaf, country-style ham, and chicken and dumplings, we also had cornbread... More

The food is very much what I like-- down home, stick to your ribs country style. The atmosphere and the store are very "homey". I love to go there in cold weather when the big fireplace is blazin' and sit as close as I can if a table is available. Only problem is table is not available sometimes because apparently... More

Really like Cracker Barrel's food, and I love the coffee. It's nice that the stores are all very similar to give you that feeling of home when you're travelling. This one was no different with their friendly staff, clean store, and good food.

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.
