Stopped for breakfast today on our way to Sarasota. Have lived in Bradenton 31 years and never been here! What is wrong with this picture! Excellent breakfast and we will be back soon! Lots of choices at reasonable prices.

We live in Sarasota, have eaten at many of Sarasota’s excellent restaurants. This diner ranks up with best. Like most diners, portions are large, the difference here is that the food is really good . We were told that Crager’s has the best fried chicken...More

Had about a 20 minute wait but they put coffee out for self serve while you wait. Service was a little slow because they were so busy but the breakfast was great. Would eat here again if in the area.

The sausage gravy and biscuits is scrumptious and the fresh squeezed orange and grapefruit juice is amazing. My hubby had the 2 pork chop breakfast and it was great as well!!! Always visit Crager's at least once when in town :)

While my meal itself was OK, I was insulted at the cash register today 1/25/2018. I paid for my meal with a 50$ bill and the cashier-in-training gave me my 26 dollars or so in change - counting it out for me. I said thanks...More

The breakfast was good but not great. The servers were forget and had to be reminded to bring condiments to the table and the order was totally messed. Very disappointing
