good food , original dishes and the portions are big. Be prepared to wait on occasion especially week ends, but the wait is worth it. Much better than the chain restaurant's.

Authentic Cracker cooking with local menu items & breakfast all day, which is my selection. 3 eggs over, bacon & grits with 'home made' bread for toast. Coffee taste is just right. Priced right. Staff always prompt & friendly. Plan on a short wait time...More

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!
