Don't complain about poor service or COLD FOOD because the manager will just announce to the whole restaurant you're unhappy and embarrass you because he and his staff can't function on a slow day.... Second time driving over 30 mins because of all the great...More

We stopped by on a Friday afternoon around 1:30. There was a wait but not so bad and nothing we did not expect. Next time we will wait for an outside table or booth. We sat at a 2 seat table inside and I think...More

Overall, breakfast was good. Friendly staff. Potatoes and toast were over cooked. And after having owned a bed and breakfast, the end slice of a loaf of bread should never be served to a guest.

Hard to say. I've always gone between 9 & 10 am on the weekend. At 9 it was easy to get seated while by 10 we had about a 10-15 minute wait for a table for 2. Best to call them for advice.

The Florida Cracker Kitchen is Family owned resturant by 2 brothers that were born and raised in the business. The Kitchen is a laid back atmosphere with southern hospitality and real food like your mom used to make. We bake our own Bread and Biscuits daily and everything is made with heart and soul. As the name says the Florida Cracker Kitchen brings back the old florida and the tastes that accompany it. We take shrimp and grits to another level with our homemade Tomato Gravy and saute fresh shrimp in and pour it over grit cakes and it will make your tongue slap your brains out! Hopefully we will see you soon!
