Service is always good, prices are great. The cobb salad is really good and filling. The vegetable soup and grilled cheese is also really good. Though, the breakfast platters tend to be too greasy. Overall a great inexpensive place for a quick bite.

We have heard about this place for a while now, but have never made the stop. MISTAKE!!! The food was excellent and staff was incredibly friendly. The history of the old building is cool too.

The Vault located in Marion, Illinois town square is a must! I have ordered many items on the menu and have fallen into bliss with their Philly Cheese sandwich! In addition to the great food, the atmosphere and service are phenomenal! I would highly recommend a visit! It will be a must-go every time you visit Southern Illinois!

Great family owned restaurant perfect for sharing with family out of town, meetings, work lunch or after church. Wonderful atmosphere inside an old bank. The food fits about everyone's needs and the price is affordable.

You cannot go wrong stopping by The Vault for breakfast or lunch.....everything on their menu is fresh and home-cooked. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is comfortable and warm. Marion is lucky to have this wonderful restaurant in our little town.

Wonderful charming old local bank turned into a FABULOUS restaurant! The biggest and best omelettes in town! Amazing French toast too. Family and friends all love this mom and pop restaurant! Skip the chain restaurants and talk to the local owner Rob who enjoys talking to old friends and meeting new people daily. You will love it I promise!

The Vault is a wonderful addition to Southern Illinois. This restaurant was an old bank that was renovated and made into a restaurant. It is so unique and the vault is still in tact and you can eat in it. There is a party room for rental upstairs and the food is wonderful. The owners are great, Christian friends of... More

We've been to The Vault for breakfast a few times and have never been disappointed. I usually opt for bacon, eggs, and some sort of potatoes. My husband sometimes does the same and other times goes for the omelet with everything on it but the kitchen sink. We've always got seated right away but I have seen people come in... More

Absolutely great food. Best thing is just like IHOP and you can eat breakfast anytime. If you're passing through and don't want fast food, come in and enjoy any and all on the menu. At times for some reason the City shuts down the square and you can't get to the restaurants. You unfortunately have to park a good distance... More
