Delicious, fresh authentic Florida ‘Cracker’ cuisine.

The Yearling Restaurant was first open in 1952, just down the road from Marjorie Kinan Rawlings home in Cross Creek. The restaurant was named after her famous novel, The Yearling. Her home still stands in Cross Creek and is open to visitors year round. We have tried to capture the flavor and spirit of old Florida, as she portrayed it her books. Please stop by and sample old Florida, as it was where you can enjoy the sights and cuisine today just as they were, in the early 1900’s.
