Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had a great experience here, staff were very friendly and accommodating - they were happy to let us stay well beyond our booked time as they didn't need to turn our table. Food was excellent and the view is spectacular and sits along with the...small handful of true Bayside restaurants. We visited on a 34 degree evening and the table inside was reasonable despite the blazing sun! Overall a great experience and would happily dine again.More

Have been to this restaurant on a few occasions, but after this morning I think we will try other restaurants. It will always have nice views but that’s where it finishes both ordered the hash brown stack and they were not cooked well at all...and the food was cold and took forever to come out. Don’t mind paying more during the current climate bust seriously how hard is it to fry a generic hash brown from the freezer and also not even a teaspoon of relish 😡 Asked by the girl at the register how was your meal ? And I replied not that great with have a nice day, no sorry or what went wrong today. Never againMore

Haven't been to Crackerjack for a number of years but decided to give it a try for lunch on our 40th wedding anniversary. We were not disappointed. Menu is varied without being too complicated and definitely not overpriced. The kitchen did a great job to...accommodate my wife's allergies and she raved about the seafood risotto that they conjured for her particular needs. My Thai Beef Salad was very good but perhaps a small critism is that the salad component could have been a bit crisper and perhaps some more zest or zing, maybe some chilli sauce, but I'm not a chef! Service was excellent, staff we not only helpful and attentive to our needs but even more importantly seemed to be enjoying their job, a real positive from my view. Hansell, the manager and all the staff should be congratulated.More

Being in Seaford my wife and I decided to look for a local place to enjoy a nice dinner together. The Crackerjack Beachfront restaurant did not disappoint. The restaurant looks like a down=to-earth restaurant and offers great food and a formidable view onto the sea....We enjoyed the seafood platter (and added some vegetables to it.) The platter was rich with a variety of seafood. About half of the seafood was fried while the other have was steamed or grilled. The platter was accompanied by a salad and a few slices of smoked salmon. As we ate we observed some other meals being brought out. Each one seemed to be uniquely and nicely presented. Definitely a place to go back to in the future again!More

Celebrated my 50th here and it was incredible! Lilian and Hansel and their crew were absolutely wonderful in every way. They bent over backwards to accomodate my 58 odd guests. The food was delicious and ample in quantity, the service amazing and the venue gorgeous....Do not hesitate to book your special occasions here. You will not be disappointed.More

Impromptu lunch to check out venue for future visit with friends. Excellent, friendly and prompt service. I had calamari and my husband had the Thai beef salad...both meals were delicious and value for money. We will be back!

Visited Crackerjack Beachfront for the first time based on a friend's recommendation, and all I can say is WOW!!!! Beautiful scenic views, very friendly staff and amazing food. The manager pre-positioned us that there would be a bit of a delay in service due to...staff shortages and all staff made it a point to keep checking on everyone to ensure our needs were met. When the food arrived, what can I say, it was worth the wait!!! We ordered the Entree Specials ie the scallops and Oysters which were the bomb! Followed by the Malibu Prawns and the Chilli Prawn linguini which was simply fingerlicking delicious!! Didn't have place for dessert, so will definitely be visiting again!!!!More

The restaurant has a good vibe with amazing sea view. The food you couldn't fault, absolutely delicious. For starters we ordered Golden Fried Prawns and Honey Chipotle Sticky Wings, the prawns were cooked to perfection, with a nice refreshing noodle salad and the blue cheese...sauce for the Chicken wings was too good! Mains, Seafood Paella and Marinara, medley of seafood was absolutely divine with generous portions too! Dessert we had Orange Blossom Creme Brulee and Mango with White Chocolate Cheesecake, both were heavenly and perfect to finish our meal. Highly recommend this place, the new management has really showcased a good celebration of food and ambience!More

Sometimes you've just gotta say WTF.....Wow, That's Fantastic!! Crackerjack's, where the food does the talking. Crackerjack's Seafood Platter is a marriage of seafood delicacies and flavours cooked to perfection, crunchy, moist, succulent, a hint of chilli but most of all, fantasticilious.
