My sister and I have just moved to the area and decided this lil rustic charm building needed our patronage. I called The Dunes this evening and the female on phone was un-descriptive and simply told me it was "happy hour". I asked about a hamburger special posted outside....again limited... read more

I've had the pleasure of going to Dune's Cracker House on a few occasions. They play games on certain days during the week during happy hour. I played Bingo with a packed house of retirees. The crowd was friendly and in great spirits. If you win, you can pick a prize. Along with the great prices on drinks, it is... More

This is a place that seems like it was probably the place to be 15 years ago. Our first hint should have been that it was virtually empty on a Friday night. We ate here for dinner, and it was just one disappointment after another. The menu is fairly limited and difficult to read. The drinks were all flat and... More

We had the Friday night prime rib again. Excellent ,perfect medium rare. I couldn't eat it all. Most everyone ordered the prime rib except one person. He ordered the fired scrimp which surprised me as almost every restaurant has fried scrimp. The scrimp had the lightest batter. I sampled a few and they were wonderful. Scrimp next time although the... More

We had a nice experience last year here for St Patty's so tried again in 2015. Bad choice. First, for some reason, certain eateries have no clue how to cut brisket/corned beef properly and this is one of them. They think the stringy long grain (lazy way) is the way to serve. You get a tough and barely chewable meal.... More

Our first day arriving at St Augustine Beach, we attempted two "trendy" restaurants to be told it was a 45+ minute wait. No thank you!! We drove down the road and stumbled upon this quaint place. It certainly had character. We were looking for a QUIET place to enjoy some dinner without waiting. We got exactly that. We sat out... More

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
