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.

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.
