We chose Florida Cracker Cafe for lunch on our recent trip to St. Augustine. I know it has been around a long time, though I'd never been there. The seating was cramped for our party of 6 as we were seated in a heavy traffic area next to the bar. Seats were bumped frequently. Our waitress was not all that knowledgeable and only partially friendly. The restaurant was only slightly busy and our food seemed to take a while. I had coconut shrimp that really had little flavor and they were small. As another reviewer said they were OK but really couldn't taste the coconut. None of us thought our meal was anything to rave about. The slaw was also flavorless. We had to wait what seemed like an eternity for our waitress to refill our drinks, and she was not busy.
Since we were a family traveling with friends we asked for separate checks. No where on the menu did we see that gratuity was included, even for a party of 6, although technically, we were a party of 2 and 4. Well, thankfully, I keep receipts and as my husband handed cash to the waitress, that included a tip, I noticed that 18% was added to the bill. She would have gotten quite a tip for lousy service. We asked for the bill/ money back and took out the additional tip. Since I don't know if it's automatically added - my advice is check your bill carefully.
They are in the heart of the St. George Street historic district but I'm sure there are better restaurants. There is nothing special here.
