Breakfast is fantastic! Bacon is thick slices, not like normal chain restaurants. Their orange juice is fresh squeezed. The service Is Great! Everything was do good we went back for dinner. Dinner was very hardy, filling and tasty. If you looking for good food and big quantity... Stop in here!

We had breakfast & supper there several times. It was always a good meal & we always left there full. The prices were reasonable. Can't ask for anything more.

Four of us went to breakfast. Very good, friendly service. Food was excellent and reasonably priced. I had the country and eggs, which did not disappoint. Another in our party had the Amish ham, which was excellent.

You have to stop here! The food is homemade and amazing, some of the best I have ever tasted. The service was also very good, the waitresses will do anything you ask them to do to make your experience better. I highly recommend anyone going by to stop in and eat.

TripAdvisor reviewers: Why do so many of you assign a 5-star rating to this place? Haven't you ever been to a nice restaurant? In my opinion, Crager's does not earn a 5-star rating in any category. My spouse and I ate a late dinner at Crager's on our first night in Sarasota-Bradenton because we wanted a quick meal within a... More

This restaurant was right next to the hotel we were staying in. We walked over one morning to try it out and were glad we did. The portions were large and were a good price. They also have fresh squeezed orange juice. If you like a good diner type of meal you should give it a try. Our service was... More

We've been to Crager's a couple times. I think the dinner was just okay (mashed potatoes suspect, green beans from a can) but the breakfasts are marvelous. They serve thick sliced bacon that is out of this world. On the weekends there might be a wait, but they have free coffee set up outside
