I had never been to a tapas restaurant before but it was a great way to try new flavors and dishes. Three of us shared 3 dishes - started out with the brussel sprouts that were roasted - really tasty

This is the second time in 6 months that we ate at Crackers. Seven years ago I loved this place and was there every weekend. The menu has changed and everything seems to be overcooked and over breaded and if it wasn't for the sauce, it tastes awful. I will not go back again.

This is a true neighborhood bar! The food is delicious (especially the specials) and drinks are plentiful. Look out for famous bartenders Steve Scott, Scotty "Boom Boom" and Chloe. This is the kind of place you go back to over and over- good music, delicious food, and great people. Try it!

Unique menu in a casual atmosphere. I love this place. I may have gained 10lbs by going there so often when I lived in Norfolk. Casual and fun atmosphere. Love it, love it, love it!

I am a big fan of tapas. I have a small appetite and small plates are the perfect amount of food for me. In addition to the Beer & Wine menu, the first two pages of the regular menu are bar drinks. My new addiction is the Moscow Mule. Despite not being served in a copper mug, the drink was... More

We have been periodically visiting for many years spanning both locations. On our recent visit we were treated to decrepit furniture and malfunctioning bathroom hand dryers (no back up towels). The alleged 12oz draft cider came in a 10oz glass. The small plate dishes had become smaller plate dishes and most were really lackluster compared to prior visits. A really... More

Very surprised to see a negative review on Crackers. I've been there probably 15 times and every single visit was exceptional from the food itself to the wait staff, bartender, atmosphere, etc. If you just come to eat it is not very expensive. Drinks are a little pricey (that's everywhere you go) BUT they are made and mixed to perfection.... More

As a preface, I love tapas. Love it. So, we eat a lot of tapas. This place was ok. A 5.5 out of 10. The atmosphere blows. The food is decent. We had the fondue, filet, pork pot stickers and the mozzarella with basil. My husband and I each had one beer. Our bill was $67.00. Wow. For a morsel... More

The server has helped us before and he can handle us being sarcastic without batting an eye. The food is always yummy and we try new things each time we go! Its a must go!

If you want to try a new flavor martini, this is where you go in Norfolk. It's small, but it's never crowded, and the bartender there now is a trip! Their appetizers are pretty good too.
