“Great marinade, cheese fries, and ranch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2013

Cruiser's has always been a popular spot at the beach. It almost always has a crowd. Nothing special about it and that is what makes it work. I love the marinade the use on the chicken which is unique. The loaded cheese fries are a popular item and very good. Their homemade ranch dressing is great too. I've been to Cruiser's locations in PVB, San Jose, and Tinseltown (since closed) and none compare to the Jacksonville Beach location.

“Burgers and Fries”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2013

Forget 5 guys - this is the place for great cheeseburgers, cheesy fries, or quesadillas. A local hot spot - and consistently good. Besides when you're done they give you a Tootsie Pop, how can you go wrong with that?

“Fantastic burgers, cheese fries, and homemade ranch dressing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2013

Cruisers Grill is one of my favorite places in Jacksonville. Their burgers are fantastic, their cheese fries are delicious, and the marinated chicken chunks are really good too. But the star of the show is the homemade ranch dressing. When you go, make sure you ask for a side of it and put it on everything you get. I don't know what it is they do when they make it, but it's the best I've ever had.The service is good, the atmosphere is nothing special, but the food (and ranch dressing) is what keeps me coming back to Cruisers when I'm in town.

“Consistently good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2013

Yummy burgers. Great fries. I love their big salad. Good shakes. Don't expect atmosphere, but it's a good place to go in shorts for a burger.

“Would never return”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2013

Small menu of unhealthy fried foods, really, really low on the totem pole for ambiance (none). Server was nice but the food was greasy and gross, and even the Caesar salad (one of only two offered), was laden with dressing, and the marinated chicken chunks were dry and unpleasant, inedible (left without eating). It is cheap and you get even less than what you pay for. Wendy's is better. Ick, ick and ick.
