Description: 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!

“Great food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

The FCK is a great place to eat when in Brooksville! The former Farmer John's Key West Cafe is going strong, with a varied menu and some specials. The Shrimp and Grits is a different presentation, but is very good!! Great food and excellent service!!

Some friends of ours went to this place after visiting the same farm we did a day before. We decided to follow their lead and we are glad we did. My boyfriend had the gator po' boy and he is a po' boy fanatic. He was not at all disappointed and really loved it! We shared a bowl of the gumbo and the okra with the grit cake on top really added to the great flavor. I had the panko crusted chicken strips and they were so crunch and not at all greasy. We live in St.Pete with a lot of wonderful restaurants but I can say that this was a delicious experience we would definitely have again!

“Excellent fried catfish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014 via mobile

I stopped by the kitchen to try the catfish special. The fish was excellent, three large fillets fried perfectly with a traditional corn meal breading. French fries were hot and crispy, just the way I like them. The cole slaw was good, but a little wilted. The restaurant is clean and the service very good. It is located a little off the beaten path but it is worth searching out.

“Very fresh, very tasty”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2014 via mobile

If not for TA, I wouldn't have SEEN Florida Cracker Kitchen, much less stopped. Tiny and unassuming from the outside, the food is way better than you'd expect. As mentioned by another reviewer, they certainly could smile more, but that wouldn't make the food any better. A Friday lunch was not terribly busy so service was pretty quick; burger was done right and salad was crispy fresh with warm shrimp. Yum!
