Fresh, Clean-tasting Oysters

I always wanted to eat here, but never had the chance when I lived here. I was excited to see they had fresh, raw oysters on the menu and decided on that with the salad bar. BF ordered the flat iron steak and an oyster shooter, which he found the latter a little odd, but a fun experience to be... read more

Red Snapper is not cheap but it has the best and freshest salad bar around. Wait staff is always professional and friendly and accommodating.

Great find, great salad bar, except pricey, $9.00 to add to an entree, no house salad option, Tequila shrimp with pasta was very tasty, fresh bread served w/dinner. Entrees come with 2 choices, so large portions

I was pleasantly surprised at the level of service and the flavor s of the food. This is some of the best beef I have had in a long time. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. The atmosphere is a little tired but it did not spoil our evening.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful evening meal a couple weeks ago and it was perfectly delightful! I enjoyed a delicious salmon dish and my husband had steak. The drinks, service, and atmosphere were as always very good!! #LoveSalmonDoneRight #LoveToWine&DineWithYou

Avery nice restaurant at reasonable prices. The menu is a bit creative and the food was excellent - tequila shrimp on linguine and salmon with an orange/Bourbon glaze. Good wines, too. Service was excellent; our waiter, Dylan, was very attentive without being annoying.

Lunch can be the soup/salad bar. I tried the shrimp over pasta which was very good, just a bit messy (white dress shirt and all) Have other salads and lighter fare on menu. Tables seem to be scrunched together to jam more people into space.

Is a GREAT restaurant! I'm writing this review in anticipation of the wonderful dining experience that my wife and I are going to have tonight...and that is based upon nearly fifteen years worth of "wonderful dining experience" as the Red Snapper has become and remains our "go to" whenever we want to celebrate a special occasion, provide a memorable experience...

My husband and I ate here two nights in a row and the food was superb both times, Steaks tasty and cooked to perfection ( we had prime rib and ribeye) seafood was delicious. We had ahi tuna med rare and sautéed scallops - both outstanding. Oyster Rockerfeller appetizers were to die for. Good wine selection. Ask for Dillon ...... More
