We always make sure to come here for brunch when we're holidaying in Florida. On our most recent visit we were sat next to a charming, young, bearded gentleman (wearing a pink Noe's Lawn Services tshirt). He recommended the fish reuben's sandwich. The salmon was...More

Great breakfast and lunch served in a friendly way to make you feel at home. Sometimes there are a lot of folks waiting for a seat but the wait is usually fairly quick.

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.

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!
