On the rating system - very few are 5’s. So, a 4 is pretty high praise - so We voted and this gets a 3.75.. If you’re in from out of town, try this place one day. It’s definitely worth a try. Also, try Mama...Clemenza’s one day. So… table of 6.. We had huevos rancheros, an eggs Benedict and a “Panhandle scramble” I think it was called, a couple cinnamon buns, a pancake and a biscuit. Everything was good. It wasn’t bad by any means, but it wasn’t fantastic. The portions are large. I think we all left food on our plates and not because it wasn’t good. It was good, just not amazing. The huevos weren’t the huevos you have to tell anyone about, but they were likely better than I could make at the house. The EB was good, my wife likes “her ham a little thinner…” The bites I ate were fine, pretty good but I prefer Momma C’s. LOL The panhandle scramble was huge and good. Overall, you can do muuuuch worse for breakfast, but you can also do better. I don’t know that’ll we will make a second trip this year but give it a try, you may love it.More

I have had great success following trip advisor ratings. Not sure I get this one. Average is about the only word. Nothing special, much better breakfast choices in Destin. Small portions for the money.

Wow! What a breakfast!! This was possibly the best we have had in a restaurant. The food was amazing. The combination of flavors was sublime. The menu was rich and full of wonderful little surprises. We were all tasting off each other’s plates. The staff...were incredibly helpful and attentive. The owner and her son were making sure everything ran smoothly and the customers were happy. The entire family wants to go back for breakfast again tomorrow.More

We were in the area for a day, and arrived early. We love it here for a great breakfast to start the day. Our party of 11 was unable to be seated together, and we were spread out among three tables, but we accepted the...seating as we knew it would just get busier here. Everything was delicious (the biscuits and gravy were very good), and served was attentive. When we are leaving, there were a lot of people waiting to be seated. ‘Early bird catches the worm’ applies here for sure.More

We were there before 9:00am and still had a 30 min wait so go early! Our server was fantastic and we highly recommend the Mauche Chioux (mock shoo) Benedict. It’s fried green tomatoes,l and crab cakes with a poached egg, sausage and green onions. It’s...has amazing flavors!More

Ansley was an amazing server. The food was wonderful. We waited for approx. 2 hrs and were all a little frustrated by the time we sat down buy your server say to our every need and made the experience more than worth it. We look...forward to coming back. We noticed the restaurant was very short staffed though they were all over worked.More

Ended up here after arriving at donut hole cafe to a line out the door at 7 in the morning and so glad we did. The staff were all super friendly and what a joy to see faces and not a face diaper. The food...was delicious I got plain grits and definitely some of the best I’ve ever had. I also ordered the parfait to go and so delicious large strawberries and the granola was delicious as wellMore

Very good service and breakfast food. They were way understaffed and still excelled at service. Food came out promptly. We did have to wait 45 minutes to be seated and this was at 10:30 AM.

My friend waited nearly an hour on a Thursday morning to eat at Crackings and it was worth it! The croisseignets (mixture of a croissant and a beignet) dusted with powered sugar and drizzled with honey are melt in your mouth delicious. My chocolate milk...was cold and fun with chocolate syrup, cream and chocolate chips. The panhandle scramble was delicious and I can't say enough about the gouda grits (my friend had them with bacon--OMG!). They are some of the best grits I've ever put in my mouth. My friend had the country fried steak and raved about it. You won't regret a trip to Crackings. If the wait hadn't been so long and other restaurants to try in the area, we would have gone back. Yum!More

No reservations accepted when we were there in December 2018. Seated pretty quickly, though!
