About
The Florida Cracker Kitchen is Family owned resturant by 2 brothers that were born and raised in the business. The Kitchen is a laid back atmosphere with southern hospitality and real food like your mom used to make. We bake our own Bread and Biscuits daily and everything is made with heart and soul. As the name says the Florida Cracker Kitchen brings back the old florida and the tastes that accompany it. We take shrimp and grits to another level with our homemade Tomato Gravy and saute fresh shrimp in and pour it over grit cakes and it will make your tongue slap your brains out! Hopefully we will see you soon!

+The only reason i gave a 4 star is because it was a 45+ min wait. To be fair, it was busy as heck and so worth the wait! The staff was amazingly friendly and while you wait you can go get a drink at...More

Long wait and OK food. We were told 20-25 minute wait. We walked to the Kracker store to kill time and then grabbed a seat out front to wait. After about 5 minutes in the sun my wife and I were starting to sweat profusely....More

Hi Floridaweathersuck, We appreciate your feedback and are so sorry you didn't enjoy your experience. On the weekends our wait can reach an hour plus, so we apologize for the misquoted time; we will work with our hosts on that issue. Our biscuits and gravy...More

You have to be patient to eat here--they have chairs outside and a large store and a bar to wait in but it might take an hour to get a table. Four of us today and we had the buttermilk chicken strips, sweet potato chips,...More

Thanks for the rating and feedback Susan! Sorry for the long waits; the weekends are very busy for us. If you have a chance to get by on a weekday, it is a much shorter wait. Thanks again!

We have eaten here many times and the food and service have always been outstanding. Try the tomato gravy if you haven't already and the shrimp and grits are amazing.

Came here based on reviews friends. The breakfast food was fantastic! My omelet was huge and my husband had a burger that was great also. They do not take credit cards, so make sure you have cash or an ATM card. Prices were very reasonable.

The food is good and a little unique. I had shrimp and grits. It was good. My wife had the breakfast sandwich and it was excellent!! When you go prepare to wait. It was worth the 45 minute drive. It is not opened for dinner.

You must try this place. The comfort food is amazing. For the full experience go on a Sunday. The line is long and you will have a wait, but you can wait in the tap room. They have plenty of local drafts and the mimosas...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.
