I visit every couple weeks. Everyone I take here loves the place. The Cracker Omelette is just the thing if you are hungry. Its huge, delicious and served with a pile of potatoes and a huge flakey biscuit. I often get the pancake of the...month which is always delicious. Two of their pancakes makes a great breakfast. Incredible staff take great care of you. Yes, its cash only. Always, always a great breakfast!More

The restaurant has a rustic old time atmosphere with a southern flare. The food is southern style home cooking. My wife ordered the scrambled eggs and coconut waffels which she loved the waffels but the eggs were greasy and rubbery. I ordered the chciken and...waffels, the waffel was good but the chicken was slightly uncooked. This restaurant is now also cash only!!!! But they have a ATM on site. I feel it's a scam. Only take cash and force people to use the ATM. Hummm.....More

My friend recently moved to Florida and I came to visit her. She spoke highly of this place, but the name was a bit much for me when she first was telling me about it. However, the food was absolutely delicious! Service was great! We...did have to wait, so we went to the store next door to see some of the things they had. I would definitely come back here with her when I visit again. Parking is tight.More

We have been living in Hudson for 5 years. I always wanted to come here for breakfast, but never did. At last we decide to drive the 35 minutes, 21 miles to do it. We will go back most times that we go out to...breakfast in the future. We tried the Sponge Diver omelette and the Popeye omelette. I had grits and a biscuit and my honey had potatoes and raisin toast. Both ample servings and good. Grits had some body to them! Three types of hot sauce and Heinz ketchup. Its the first time for me in about 7 years that I didn't feel a need for ketchup. Lots of choices. Did I mention that we will go back? Service was prompt and friendly. Ca$h only.More

We went on here on a weather perfect Sunday for lunch. Ended up with about an hour wait. There is a bar next door and a gift shop for browsing both operated by the restaurant, and they help to fill time as you wait. (We...sat on the deck by the bar and enjoyed a blood orange/tequila concoction that was very good.) If you enjoy Southern home cooking, you'll be glad you waited in line. We began with a cinnamon roll. It is gigantic and easily shared. It is more in the family of a biscut dough than some cinnamon rolls might be, but it shouldn't be missed. My wife had the shrimp and grits. The grits come in two deep fried triangles, and they pair perfectly with the shrimp and tomato gravy. I had the crab cakes, and they were full of blue crab with just enough breading to hold them together. The remoulade sauce elevated the flavor even more. I had house made sweet potato chips and collards for my sides. The collards were outstanding! They were seasoned to perfection with bacon and potato. I honestly don't think I have ever put better tasting collards in my mouth, and I have eaten them often at Southern style restaurants. Florida Cracker Kitchen is one of those rare local gems that delivers on the hype. It is only open for breakfast and lunch. If you find yourself anywhere near Brooksville, you owe it to yourself to check it out for yourself.More

Great food, worth the wait. We have driven by many times but did not stop due to the many people waiting outside. I am glad we stopped on a laid back Sunday. Waited for over an hour, which we spent checking the stores nearby. Food...was great, nice music, great environment. We tried a cinnamon roll (HUGE), Waffles with fried chicken and Cheddar Burger with Mimosas. Everything was delicious!!More

You can’t go wrong bringing friends here for the first time. We walked around, did some shopping, stopped at the tap bar for one of those wonderful breakfast mimosas, and enjoyed a delicious breakfast. The food was served quickly and tasted delicious. Great atmosphere, super...kind people.More

Waited out front, just two of us. After the third couple that we watched put their name in after us had been seated and waiting about 25 minutes, was told it would be another 15-20 minutes. One of the couple even acknowledged we were sitting...out front before them. Have been going there for years but don’t plan on going back to be skipped over.More

Wife and I were out for a motorcycle ride and went to Florida Cracker Kitchen for breakfast. This was a return visit for me, but first experience for my wife! This visit was 10 times better than the first and that one was great! Immediate...seating for us, service was spot on, spectacular and food was delivered hot and very fast! Let's talk about the food shall we? OMG it was beyond INCREDIBLE and DELICIOUS! Food portions were huge and if you waddle away still hungry, that's your fault!! We will most definitely be back!!More

Based on the reviews we read, we went to the Florida Cracker Kitchen. A great breakfast that is well made with quality ingredients. Partner said the corned beef hash was as advertised, stating it was the best she has ever had - and she is...a trained professional chef. Service was very good. Only downside, they don't take credit cards and we barely had enough cash. If there was signage to this it is not well displayed and we did not see it. It should be better displayed. Highly recommend.More

The food was delicious! I had the brisket sandwich. I was expecting BBQ but it was more like a Philly steak with carmelized onions and au jus. So good!

Excellent food staff friendly and knows menu. Busy on weekends so be prepared to have a mimosa next door. Relaxed casual and outside dining. Cash only with reasonable prices. Fast service with food cooked to perfection. Will be back to this spot of heaven.

Hard to say. I've always gone between 9 & 10 am on the weekend. At 9 it was easy to get seated while by 10 we had about a 10-15 minute wait for a table for 2. Best to call them for advice.
