Stopping while Traveling we were happy with our meal and while waiting able to browse the gift shop many options to pick from, clothes knick hacks and of course snacks. You also have many options from the menu, meals come very quickly and are delicious.

Most Cracker Barrel restaurants serve average food. This one was truly uninspired. The service was ok, but the food was bland. It is really hard to screw up a Ruben sandwich, but the cook at this CB did so. The flavor was lacking and it is even looked as though the sandwich was an afterthought on the cook's part.

As always, Cracker Barrel served delicious food. Our party enjoyed everything from cod fish to chicken and dumplings and much in between. Yes, Cracker Barrel tends to be a bit noisy, but I think that's largely because everyone is enjoying it so much and having a good time. If you go to this C.B., I hope Mikka is your server.... More

I go here at least once a month. The dinner food toward the end of the night has been a disappointment. Breakfast has been a safe choice,. At all times. Lunch has never dissatisfied.

Always enjoy Cracker Barrel and was pleased once again as we stayed next door at the Quality Inn and Suites in Marion, IL. Food was delicious and service was fast. No waiting.
