Servers and bartenders are friendly but the drinks are not worth what you pay for. I ordered a Capt Mogan and pineapple and after thinking it was a weak pour i ordered an extra shot and sipped it to check. I am a bartender and...More

Server was very nice not that attentive. The vittles were awful - dry corn bread, too sweet stewed tomatoes, clumped mashed potatoes, blah cole slaw, too smoked greens, etc. The salad had burned to a rock hard crisp bacon that had lard on them, limp...More

Hidden gem in East Naples! Delicious bang for your buck, generous portions with all the fixings or as they call them "vittles" - prepare for a food coma as 7 or 8 sides come with dinner! Great pulled pork, moist and flavorful. Relaxed, casual atmosphere.

We were first timers to Cracklin Jacks - went with friends while visiting in Naples. The food was good, and it was nice to get all the sides so we could try several things. Good service and prices were reasonable.

We really enjoyed CJ's on our down to Fla. March. It's a very funky, cool place that gets lots of locals. Have the catfish and gator tail with an ice cold beer.

Friend and I had salads and drinks. Great place for filling up before the shopping trip. Average price, good service, plenty of parking. Good girls don't eat dessert.

Had a birthday dinner for a friend but the place does not do anything special for a birthday. The blackend prime rib dinner was a hit and done as ordered - rare, Shrimp, catfish and shrimp and sausage dinners were also done well. Only disappointment...More

With all of the wonderful restaurants in this area, spend your money elsewhere. When asked if any of the seafood was fresh, the waitress replied that everything is frozen because it is too far from the docks. The "vittles", which were bottomless, were served far...More
