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.

Cracker Barrel is known for home cooked comfort at a reasonable costs. This location was a bit short on their service and food. My visit was during the lunch time at 12:30 p.m. My turkey and Dressing was served promptly. However, this bread dressing was much too dry for my taste and more dry than bread dressing served at other... More

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.

Took my wife and sisters to dinner. Sister's eggs were a little under cooked. The other meals were spot on. The service was great. Very little wait. Shopped in the gift store a little bit. Always a good place for conversation and dinner.

They were busy but had no problem handling the volume. I didn't see anyone waiting for service and hot food came out pretty quickly. The featured Chicken dinner on Sunday was excellent. Way more than I could eat, didn't like leaving it, but when you are on the road, not much choice.

The food is great and the service is too. The seating is tight. Not much room between tables and is always crowded. The gift shop is nice inside too. On Wednesdays they have the best chicken pot pie at lunch that is great. Never a bad meal. Even when we travel we will look for a Cracker Barrel. The breakfast... More

We use to love coming here and eating. Not so much anymore. The portion sizes just keep getting smaller and smaller. A good waiter is hit or miss. Over all just not enough food for what you pay for. Others say this as well.

I love going to Cracker Barrel. It is a very family friendly place where everyone makes you feel welcome. The food is great. They have so many options is a good choice for everyone. The only negative I have is the acoustics. The place gets really loud and they don't have sound barriers to absorb it.
