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!

“Amazing Service and Excellent Food!”
Reviewed August 30, 2014

We visit Florida Cracker Kitchen religiously every weekend. Even though I'm a creature of habit and usually order the same thing at restaurants time and time again, everything on their menu is so enticing I usually have a hard time picking out what to order. Their corned beef hash is to die for, their omelettes are healthy, their breads are made from scratch. They offer local honey and feature produce sourced locally. The service is great at this family run restaurant and I recommend it to friends and visitors all the time! Can't wait for them to open for dinner in the fall.

“Very Disappointed!”
Reviewed August 22, 2014

My husband and I went through Brooksville 3-4 weeks ago and stopped at a hotdog stand right down the street from this restaurant...there was also an antique shop and the owner told us her grandson used to own the hotdog stand, but had sold it and put in the Florida Cracker Kitchen...we loved the hotdog stand, so we were sure to love the new place...NOT! First of all we were seated and not given a menu...the owner noticed and brought us one. He was very friendly, but not so with the rest of the staff...whoever seated us was supposed to wait on us, but that did not happen and we kind of got picked up by another server...seemed like no one wanted us or they were not sure who was supposed to have us, so we got terrible service. The food was just ok, nothing to write home about...and they only take cash for payment...sorry folks, need to get with the real world! Debit and credit cards are most people cash these days! You are losing customers...not worth the little fees you have to pay to process the cards!

“Nice little hideaway!”
Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

Just driving by & had to stop. Breakfast all day which we love. Tiny seating & full parking lot. Hubby got a custom made omelet, huge. Nice meal & tasted good & oh came incredibly fast. Reasonable prices. Closed Mondays & closes at 2:30 PM. Cash only.

“I'm only sorry that I waited so long to try it!”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

My wife and I rried this place for breakfast for the first time last unday. Wow what a pleasant surprise. I had the Country Fried Steak and eggs witha colosal bisquit. Wow was it awesome. My wife had the Shrimp and grits. Again wow, wow, wow! We both tied each others and decided to split both breakfasts. We also took home a couple of their Cinnamin Rolls, what a treat. Wait Staff was awesome. The owner came over to meet us and was really and sincerely cordial. Highly recommend this place. We will go back often.

“"Well Worth The Drive"”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

We were regulars at the old “Farmer John’s” for breakfast and would quite often take a leisurely drive down RT. 41 to Brooksville from Inverness. We were a bit apprehensive when it changed ownership and became the “Florida Cracker Kitchen.” All our worries were for not, as the new owner has proven he can still serve a quality, above average breakfast, day in and day out for the Brooksville area.

We still miss the baked German Apple Pancake though, but understand the amount of time that it took for the preparation etc. was a problem.

I especially like the Crepes for breakfast and would highly recommend. The homemade Hash on any breakfast dish, is a nice touch and above the norm.

The restaurant can be very busy at times, but fortunately, the tables turn over rapidly, even in season. The staff is top notch and works together like a well-oiled machine. The “Florida Cracker Kitchen” is well worth the drive, not matter where you are coming from……..
