    Nice Patio, OK Food

    The patio was nice for being at such a great location but the menu did not have many options or specialties

    Wonderful Staff!

    I was sitting with my dog outside of the restaurant. We actually didn’t eat there but the staff was so lovely. They all came over to see my dog, and asked if they could pet him. An employee brought out a pitcher of water for my dog and gave us a to-go cup of water for him. He greatly enjoyed the attention and hydration. I have eaten here in the past without my dog and the food is good too!

    Seriously The Best

    The restaurant is a great place for families with dogs. The staff is suuuuper friendly and kind to the dogs as well. The food is beyond awesome. I had the catch of the day, which was Red Drum for lunch. It was a huge fillet, blackened and came with two sides. The dish was $13 and change. In my opinion, it’s a great price for how much I got and the quality was great as well. If you don’t have a water bowl for your dog, they will offer to bring your dog some water. I recommend this place.

    Good Food And Location

    This was our first stop while in the area. The food and service was wonderful. They offered a bowl of water for the puppy. Seating was hard for us as it was picnic table style and the puppy wanted to be next to me.

    A favorite!

    We have gone here for years, first with our Golden, Lady, and then our Golden, Clarence. We have always found it to be super dog friendly. The food is always great. I can recommend the steak sandwich and the fried clams. We always order these two items and then split it. Since they are our favorites we get a bit of both. The patio is lovely and they always bring water for the dog.

    unbelievable experience

    The staff here was amazing! They greeted our Dutch Shepard and brought her water when they came to get our drink orders. The food was good and the music was great. We heard about this place from the go Fido app and it was a super pet friendly. We were greeted quickly and brought around to the outside patio. The experience we had here was everything we could've hoped for We are very excited to come back next time we come to St Augustine.

    During my 4 years at Flagler College in St. Augustine, I discovered and fell in love with the Florida Cracker. Whenever my parents, grandparents, or friends would come to visit me in St. Augustine, I'd always convince them to eat at the Florida Cracker, and they always loved it. When my (then) fiance first visited St. Augustine, I had him take me there for lunch. After one bite of his shrimp po'boy (and two of my seafood pasta salad!) he fell in love with the Florida Cracker, too. When we went to St. Augustine on our honeymoon, it was our first food destination. Whenever we visit St. Augustine now, we always have to stop by the Florida Cracker. Delicious food at college-student affordable prices, the Florida Cracker is the best!
