We have ate here several times and the food is great. Great fried chicken and a good selection of other favorites. The homemade deserts are worth the trip..

This restaurant has the feel of a less corporate cracker barrel. Portions are good and service is good and food is good. This place reminds you of "home cooking". It used to be surrounded by a farm but now development has developed around it.

Great place to enjoy country food in a family friendly environment. The food was great and it didn't break the bank. Very popular so make reservations. We went on a Monday Night and they were crowed. The country store had a huge selection of homemade goods. Stopped at the custard shop for desert. Excellent all the way around.

Was with 9 others for an afternoon weekday lunch. Was seated quickly and orders taken shortly after. My meatloaf was good, sides okay. Everyone who ordered salad enjoyed it. Price under $15. Polite & quick service. Place was clean.

Took a nice ride over to Eckert's one Friday afternoon. Walked through the country store and had dinner at the restaurant. The store had a good selection of fresh fruit and veggies. We were going to try to 'pick our own' but it was just too hot! Peach season starts July 1! Food at restaurant was good. All you can... More

Eckert's is a very nice place with plenty of seating room. They have a great menu with fair prices. However the food is barely average. We had the signature chicken dinner and the cod fish plate. The chicken was just average and the cod fish had absolutely no flavor. Very disappointed.

Both Eckert's restaurant and country store are great. The fried chicken is wonderful and they make the best peach pie I have ever eaten! The store has just about everything in it.

Ate here while vacationing in St Louis. Immediately seated. Fast and friendly service. All you can eat fried chicken and sides $10.99. Dinners served in a black skillet. Chicken was crispy and moist. Dipping sauces for onion petals was great. 3 different kinds. We didn't have any dessert. Would eat here again. Highly recommend
