Built more than a hundred years ago, the “cracker house” is named after the cowboys who stayed here after cracking their whips all day. The owner has retained the rustic & rough character of a hundred plus year old building yet serves excellent food at affordable prices. We found it because of the daily “two for one” offers, that also... More

We were staying in a hotel just down the road. Decided we would try this place as it looked nice from the outside. Only couple of people in bar area no one in the restaurant, we asked for a cocktail and the girl said she could only make a couple of different ones. When we received our food, some of... More

We enjoyed great seafood at reasonable prices...delightful old building with great ambiance and super friendly owners and staff. The fireside room was beautifully decorated for the thanksgiving season....loved that they'd hadn't jumped the gun and decked the halls already!

I saw some bad reviews on here but I must say the food was amazing. The chicken on the sandwich was hand breaded and cooked perfectly. Even the picky kids liked their food. The building is old but full of character. The building itself could probably use a little work but it isn't dirty and the food is great.

Wednesday nights order a drink, bartender flips a coin, if your correct, drinks free. That simple. Never had the food.

although its amazing history … i was very discouraged . Terrible Service . Our Steaks were burnt to the point where you couldn't eat them . Our drinks tasted funny … Restrooms very just nasty and completely unsanitary . I took me over 1 hour to even get my food and much less that it was not fully cooked .... More

This place is by far the worst place to dine in St. Augustine.... Not just the beach, the entire city of St. Augustine... Possibly in all of St. John's county. Not only is the food terrible but the decor is horrific and the building is poorly maintained . The bathrooms are possibly the worst I have ever experienced . Good... More

Don't pay attention to the bad reviews. Dunes is old, yes but has atmosphere. The drinks are super reasonably priced and a very good pour. Also, they have a new chef from Louisiana who is excellent. If you are looking for new building, then go to Salt Life up the street. You'll pay much more.

Walking by and saw the sign. Who can resist a place called Dune's Cracker House Bar and Grille. Mostly locals now that this is the off season. Older crowd early, might check it out later in the evening.
