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.

This restaurant suffered from a number of mixed reviews over the years but from our recent experience the new chef has transformed the experience. The ambiance continues to be rustic but now the food is excellent. This is the sort of chef who doesn't mind changing the menu if he finds something special in the market when he buys his... More

My wife and I are always looking for good places locally (Palm Coast/Daytona Beach/St. Augustine FL.) to go out on our weekly date night and we stumbled upon the Dunes Cracker House in St. Augustine Beach. As other reviewers have said its a rustic older restaurant. There is a lounge area where it was packed with patrons listening to nightly... More

Sorry again, for a local place; but this place is amazing stays open even when no one is ever there. Food is "tourist" fried whatever. DIRTY.

My husband and I love coming here when we want a delicious burger. We have not tried anything else on the menu, although it looks like there could be many excellent choices. The atmosphere is very rustic, which may be offputting for some, but on our first visit, once we settled in and interacted with the friendly and efficient waitstaff... More
