“Great for after the beach or fishing and Boat-Friendly!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012

This little restaurant has improved a lot since my visit last year. Located over the water on the Indian River Lagoon on the east side of Titusville, under the bridge on the north side. We had a large party but were served quickly. Most of us had seafood. Prices were very reasonable for the portions and quality. I had the swordfish and it was the best I've ever tasted. Others had fish tacos, the grilled platters (scallops were a little small but were tender) and shrimp dishes. There's a little tiki bar outside too. We watched dolphins and manatees. Some boaters pulled up to the dock and came in. After dinner we all walked the adjoining pier and talked to the folks fishing, watched a beautiful sunset and stayed until after the pier lights came on watching the locals catching shrimp. Good food, good service, great view, and very relaxing!

“Great view, just really bad food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

The view is fantastic. The tiki bar is a fun place for some live music, which is rare in Titusville, and cold beer. I go back every once in a while, thinking the food will get better and it just doesn't. It was good when they first opened and has gone downhill from there.
They employ really young people who I just don't believe really care about service.

“Great Food, 3 Way Views of the Indian River Lagoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

My mom and I dined at Crackerjacks tonight. It was so lovely looking out on the water. The server was great, though the food was a little slow in coming. But they were quite busy. I asked if I could have the seared Tuna on the Island Mango Salad instead of on the Asian Salad. Blackened mahi normally comes with the island salad. Although the blackened Mahi is good, I wanted the tuna this time. The salad was fabulous with tons of seared tuna. it was perfection, just seared a tad around the edges. The mango dressing is great. My mom had the meat loaf. I am not a meat loaf fan, but she said it was very tasty. I tasted her accompanying veggies. They were done to perfection, and she had good portions of everything. The restaurant was a bit noisy, but it was busy, but not overcrowded. The food was a very good value.

“Great view and Service, bland food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

We were terribly disappointed with the food here. Salt seems to be an unknown seasoning and things that should have extra herb/spices like Mango Vinaigrette have none. I was expecting this to be tangy, flavorful and fruity but it was mostly just bland. Could barely taste any vinegar.

The Seafood Pot Pie which reads on the menu like a delightful Newburg style pot pie turns out to be mashed up fish with a small amount of scallops and shrimp scattered throughout then topped with pastry dough. No cheese sauce, no vegetables, no seasonings - horrible other than the fact that the seafood was fresh.

The meatloaf wasn't much better - served with dry mashed potatoes and only a tiny bit of gravy which had been served underneath the meatloaf.

The food was served ultra hot which was a plus but didn't save it from having little flavor. Don't know if we'll visit again when I go out to eat, I want better food than this.

“Nice view. Terrible food, service and prices.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012 via mobile

View is nice but the food was horrible, as was service and for what we got it was over priced. Fish was horrible. Tasted over fishy. Your better at any other restaurant.
