Ordered takeout tonight. When I arrived to pick up the bag was waiting on a table but had to wait a few minutes for wait person to finish on patio. When he came in (not wearing a mask) he said that was my order on...the table. I ordered a taco platter (comes with french fries and pasta salad) with 2 grilled shrimp tacos and 2 blackened shrimp tacos (not the platter). I gave him cash + 20% tip and left with my bag. Before I drove away I checked the order. The container contained 3 tacos (1 taco short) and no fries or pasta salad. I went back in and wait staff (still no mask) told me he would correct it. Waited outside for 5 minutes when he returned (still no mask) with what was supposed to be my order. Still incorrect so he took it back. I waited more than 5 minutes before he came back out (still no mask) and finally gave me correct order. Of course when I got home it was all cold. Unlikely to order or frequent this establishment again. Used to be very good.More

I wish I could actually give a review on food. We didn’t get to have a meal because we were refused service due to my husband having his service dog. They offered outdoor seating but it was super hot and rainy. Someone needs to look...into the laws on the ADA.More

Patty provided excellent service!!! The food was outstanding! Fresh cut shoestring fries, coconut shrimp(out of this world) and hand cut and breaded chicken tenders. Excellent patio for social distancing and pup friendly ❤️

By chance we were in the area and decided to give Crackers a try. If you are into upscale atmosphere, not the place for you. The server explained tacos are their best seller so wife had the blackened shrimp tacos. They were ok but too...much sauce for our tastes and no guacamole included. Not bad but not outstanding. I had the coconut fried shrimp and was rewarded the delicately breaded, expertly fried shrimp. Service was good as are the prices. I will be back to try more of their menu and shrimp.More

First visit we picked up a slice of Pina Colada Cheesecake to take home and boy was it good. Second visit we ate in and had an Aruba Fish sandwich (piece of fish was huge) and a Mahi Reuben Sandwich (not as weird as it...sounds). Nothing fancy, but the food was good and it's worth consideration.More

All I can say is, Outstanding, This place is one of the best in the area. While vacationing in the area for a few years now. I do not know how many times I have driven past Crackers time and time again and never paid...much attention to it. You have to look good because it is in a small strip shop area. While searching on TA, I read some of the reviews and decided to give it a try. The reviews were spot on, this place is terrific. I got hooked on the Bohemian chowder. We went back a couple more times during our stay. We had the shrimp and fish tacos, burgers, and fried fish, (did I mention the Bohemian Chowder) It was all great. I know this might sound crazy considering all the food we had, but our group of four was fascinated by the french fries.....man they are outstanding, I can not explain why but they are. The restaurant is small and quaint with great décor. They also have a little roofed area for outside dining. The service is also top notch and very fair pricing. The whole reason I first went there was to try the pina colada cheesecake. Both it and the key lime mango cheesecake is the best I've had. It is a definite go to spot!!More

After reading the excellent reviews, we ventured out to find the gem but were surprised it's located in the corner of a small strip mall. We almost did not stop as no there were no other customers in the very small parking lot, but decided...to try it based on the reviews. WOW! The food is amazing and served by friendly staff. My only minor comment is because of the small size, it's hard to practice social distancing--so if you fit into one of the high risk categories for COVID-19, you might need to order carry out and wait until there's a vaccine to eat inside.More

The coconut shrimp and island burger were great! But most importantly... the pina colada cheesecake was INCREDIBLE. Amazing recommendation from our server! Great little place, great food, great vibe.

Stop in here for tacos and waited close to one hour for them to arrive. Didn't seem to be a lot of customers, so I couldn't see why there was such a delay. Bar tender/waitress was not very attentive. Tacos were good but not worth...the wait.More
