Serves breakfast & lunch, but time your arrival, especially on weekends. Popular with locals and tourists alike, it's a great place to eat. This trip I had a bowl of gumbo, and a side of collard greens.... Yummy. Friends ate the Shepard's Pie special .....More

Just a great county restaurant that serves great food. The owner is always on site with a smile. The only bad part is it’s cash only.

Very small & long wait. We were told 30 minutes, it was 90minutes. Food was delicious though especially the shrimp & grits and gumbo. Staff friendly & efficient so other than the long would recommend.

First of all, bring cash as they don’t take credit cards. I had shrimp and grits and hubby had French toast and sausage. The grits are served as kind of a tri tator, which is different than any I’ve ever had. I prefer cheesy grits,...More

What does it take for a restaurant to have it all? In my opinion, it is good food, good service, good prices, and a large enough menu to satisfy nearly anyone. Florida Cracker Kitchen met all the criteria. There were 42 of us, from our...More

Hard to say. I've always gone between 9 & 10 am on the weekend. At 9 it was easy to get seated while by 10 we had about a 10-15 minute wait for a table for 2. Best to call them for advice.

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!
