Variety of tapas. Great bartender. Mixed crowd. Lots of fun! Specials and menu items unusual but always good.

Went there with my wife expecting a classy meal in a martini bar setting. The atmosphere was not as nice as expected. It seemed to be mostly a college aged crowd, most of which were having conversations at the volume level of a club. The music was clearly someone's ipod as they skipped from ring of fire, to third eye... More

Fondue of the day! This is a staple for us...there are always daily specials. We have yet to really find a dish that we have not liked. You can also make your dish an entree vs tapas but we love the variety so we always go for various dishes. The dishes can add up though, but I have to say... More

My wife and I went to Crackers for her birthday dinner. The atmosphere lacks class, it's more of an open room with hastily placed tables. No intimacy whatsoever. Mondays they offer half off wine bottle purchases, we opted for that and also ordered just about every tapa from thier menu including the swordfish special. The swordfish was delicious, the falafel... More

I've had good meals and unusual combinations that were tasty. There are lots if regulars and it's always a fun place. It has no one dish or consistent bargain that would cause me to go back routinely. Many others have found it addicting. Try for yourself

We went to dinner last week in Norfolk, Va. We went to a tapas place call "Crackers." We greatly enjoyed the food which was wonderfully unique and our server, Caleb, was absolutely, charming and attentative. Great experience!! We found it through restaurant.com. We came from Philadelphia and just printed a coupon. It was a great find. Just the right amount... More

Crackers offers tapas-style dining in and a trendy atmosphere. The food is really tasty, and it's a fun place to share a bunch of small plates. The flavors that the chef combines are inventive and well-paired. They have a good drink menu, too.

I usually find this place to be a winner, the only times we have had a bad experience was related to the other people in there being loud obnoxious women who suffered from voice immodulation. However, the Tapas are top notch and every meal here should be finished with the smores... they are awesome. They make awesome drinks as well,... More
