“Fun place with fun food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

Yet another example of a restaurant that strives, and largely succeeds, in providing creditable down-home Southern cooking but spoils it slightly by an effort to add the je-ne-sais-quoi from the french/americain nouvelle moment -- ie add cilantro to stuff, fry the bread pudding (this was very good but gilding the lily). Anyway i'm carping -- it's a real fun place -- lively on a Sat night (staff somewhat overwhelmed) and fun food.

“A turn of fortune”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

While driving around looking for something to eat on our way to the Miami Airport we had the incredible luck to happen upon Crackers. We went in not knowing what to expect. It turned out to be a fabulous and very affordable breakfast. I had the special which was shrimp Benedict. Egg on a base made of grits with a shrimp topping and semi spicy sauce. That and the outstanding Bloody Mary set my long day of travel off on the right foot. If you are in Miami and around the airport, and if you can find it this is definitely the packer to eat. The staff was very friendly and attentive and paid attention to everything we might need.

This is now on my list for Miami again and again and again. Try to make it here, you will not be disappointed.

“Yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

We sat outside and the atmosphere was great. Very relaxed and fun. We all ordered something different and all good- the shrimp po boy looked the best of the three. The friend bread pudding dessert was super good and smelled like heaven.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

Our party of 13 was immediately seated at a series of long tables on the patio. The menu was a few pages long but not overwhelming and the specials seemed carefully thought out. Every once in a while it seemed as though our server was struggling with our party size but all-in-all our experience was wonderful.

“Shrimp and grits!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

The best little unknown out of the way place you can ever get a bite in! The owners are very friendly. Their menu is delightful and they always have specials of the day. Rustic, inside and outdoor seating. The drinks are fairly priced too. Love it, have been here several times. Will recommend it completely without reservations.
