Flat drinks, out of eveything. Flat out sucked.

All the food was obviously frozen. The soft drinks were flat and the ran out of baked potatos at 630 pm. When i asked to substitute a salad in place of the potato they were out of they wanted to charge me two extra dollars. This place sucked. Please dont go there.

We went for the Friday prime rib special. Apparently the first Friday. Ate at the bar. The prime rib was great. My guess is a 10 to 12 oz cut . Baked potato but no salad for $15.95 . We still couldn't eat it all. I do wish they would upgrade their red wine. A great value. Yes the place... More

Had been to the Dunes Cracker House years before and was not impressed then and not impressed now. Yes the building is old and in need of maintenance but that can be part of the charm. Being local I would have loved to be able to say this was a diamond in the rough. As it stands I cannot say... More

My wife went into the bar during happy hour . The lounge was packed with retirees like us playing spin the wheel. We had fun and the drinks were reasonable. We decided to stay for dinner and sat at the bar. My wife had the seafood pasta which was very good and I had the fried oyster dinner. My oysters... More

We had a group of 9. 7 adults and 2 children. There was no one dining when we arrived at 4:30. There were several people at the bar. The issues started with the drink order. 3 of us asked for a glass of Pinot Grigio. The Waitress came back and told us the "bar" was out of Pinot and that... More

We last dined here almost three years ago. This visit ten of us were looking for food after a round of family mini-golf up the street. Our server was very friendly, but not very efficient. She didn't seem to know much about anything and kept running back and forth to the kitchen and the bar, after repeatedly giving us incorrect... More

No place was open today for food. Hotel that we were staying at said we had to go into historic St. Augustine to get food. 10 miles away. Driving down A1A not too far from the hotel we saw a sign said We're open. The place was called The Dunes Cracker House. So glad we saw that sign we both... More

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!
