Florida Cracker Kitchen is expected to open within the next three months at 14329 Beach Blvd. next to the Pablo Station shopping center.

The 3,600-square-foot location will have 150 seats including an outdoor patio.

The menu will include favorites such as shrimp n’ grits, chicken and waffles and corned beef hash.

The company was launched in 2012 by Blair Henley and his brother Ethan, a graduate of the New England Culinary Institute.

Henley designed the Florida Cracker Kitchen’s logo, an upside down boot that mimics the shape of the state of Florida.

The brothers were approached by ServStar Management Group, which manages several Jacksonville-area establishments such as Dos Gatos, The Shim Sham Room, Scarlett O’Hara’s, Hoptinger and Surfer (The Bar).

“We didn’t have knowledge of running multiple locations and ServStar has a proven track record,” Henley said. “They’ve been extremely helpful to us to get this going.”

Florida Cracker Kitchen’s tap room will feature 10 craft breweries from across Florida such as Cigar City and Swamp Head as well as local selections from Intuition Ale Works, Engine 15 and more.

The restaurant will be open Tuesday through Sunday from 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

“Eventually, the tap room might be open later, but for now, we want to open and get things going,” Henley said.
