Best corned beef ever. Order the cowboy breakfast. The wait on a Saturday is a little long so plan on that and they only take cash. While you are waiting they do have other attractions and shopping on site.

Outstanding food. Its unrivaled. They close at 2pm and only take cash. This is a must do food stop. Get the baked apples on your pancakes, delicious! The corned beef hash is the real deal and dont get me started about the cinnamon rolls beyond...the beyond!More

This business does not require masks to be worn by staff or patrons. Although I have been diligent about protecting myself from exposure to COVID, I let my guard down by eating at this restaurant. 4 days later I experienced flu like symptoms and tested...positive.for the virus. My health has been permanently damaged and 2 other family members have become ill. One of them was just taken off life support. I wish that I never went inside this restaurant.More

Stopped here at lunch time but several breakfast items sounded really good. Everyone was very satisfied with their food. Highlights we sampled we're the chicken and waffles, chicken strips and cinnamon pancakes. Delicious! Note that they are cash only, which could prevent us from stopping...there if we don't have cash on hand. I want to go back and try the homemade cinnamon roll and some other specialty pancakes! If you eat here, wrap it up with a stop into the Florida Cracker store 2 doors down. We did and bought this great fire ring.More

Very good service. Great prices. Eggs were not cooked as ordered and had no seasoning. The sausage gravy had to much pepper and was un-etable. She did not offer to get more.

Drove 40 miles just to have lunch. It was ok, not worth the drive. Cash only! Ate outside, were swarmed by love bugs, patio could have been screened in.

Very sorry you experience wasn't more enjoyable. Unfortunately we are still held at only 50% capacity inside, so we must utilize our outdoor seating. We will look into what we can do involving the love bugs. Hoping the food and service were up to par.

Excellent service, good food, dumpy atmosphere, ridiculously long wait to be seated. The staff was great. The owner was obnoxious! Restaurant was dumpy and dirty inside and out. No one should wait that long to be seated for bacon and eggs.More

Hello, very sorry you didn't enjoy your visit. We do pride ourselves in keeping our restaurant clean and sanitary. We do apologize for the wait, we are currently under a 50% capacity due to state sanctions, so this does limit us on seating. We do...More

First time visit. Décor and clean this place has. Ordered coffee in to-go cup with waitress acknowledgement. Brings coffee in mug with lipstick on it - ok really no biggie, still got a cup of joe to go. Ordered bacon, eggs, taters, and toast. Food...quantity and price comparable. Staff friendly but the food was not "fresh & hot." I suspect my plate was sitting under a warmer. The food just seemed "old." The grilled hash browns & bacon especially I suspect were warmed up in a microwave......bottom line, give it one more visit then decide to become a regular.More

Call ahead for Drive Through was so simple, I got my order right away. The girls were waiting at the drive through, went in and picked up my order, I got it and had an awesome breakfast. Delicious Catfish, eggs and biscuit with gravy. So...happy to hear Phase 1 seating is in effect. Will visit soon.More

I was driving through Brooksville and saw a sign for Florida Cracker Trading Company. I followed the sign and pulled in. The decor is interesting and fun to look at. The food was fantastic. I tried the Gumbo because you can’t pass up on Gumbo....This Gumbo was excellent with two pieces of fresh shrimp on top. I also took advantage of the special of the day: Pressed Cuban I was eating the Gumbo when I complimented to the waitress that the Gumbo was excellent. She said wait until you try the Pressed Cuban. She was right on...pulled pork, ham, Swiss cheese, pickled on Cuban bread was out of this world. People can joke about a Florida Cracker all they want but I’ll argue with anyone if they say anything about the food at Florida Cracker Trading Company. NOTE: they take cash only but their is an atm Machine there and they only charge a $2.00 transaction fee.More

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.
