In all fairness, I must state that I have vast knowledge of Cracker Barrel operations. With that said, our recent visit to this store was poor. The server was new - "A Rising Star" or trainee in lay terms. She was nice enough but just not a good server. She was slow to provide refills if she remembered at all,... More

Great place to stop for a meal when traveling thru southern Illinois on I-57. Great service on a crowded Saturday at lunch time. Fried chicken salad was fresh as was the roasted turkey sandwich. Our server was very friendly and so were the other employees we interacted with. Plenty of parking and right off the highway.

I really enjoy Cracker Barrel's breakfast as it tends to have a home made feel to it. This restaurant in particular was very good, the service was friendly, and the food was brought out quickly.

You can always depend on great food and service at Cracker Barrel. This one in Marion did not disappoint. We ate here both nights we were in Marion.

Cracker Barrels are dependable. No matter which one you visit, you can expect the same experience. I love to get the veggie plates. Good food!

We stopped here to have a quick dinner and ordered our usual 4-veggie plate. The food was served quickly, was plenty enough for us to split, tasted good, and cost very little. With water to drink (and take our pills), the total came to $10.45 with tip. Hard to beat.

Cracker Barrel has the best Chicken Fried Chicken, Fried Eggs over Medium, and Crispy Hashbrowns (just ask for them)- Yes you can order them if you are not ready for the Cracker Barrel Hashbrown Casserole that early in the day. Favorite restaurant when traveling. Unfortunately,... More
