Sea scallops

Wow, the sea scallops were perfectly grilled. I might add they were Bacon wrapped. The butternut squash risotto was bland. The broccoli Rob was very tasty. The wife had the Ono (wahoo) and gnocchi with broccoli rob. My son had the jumbo shrimp with oriental seasoned slaw and broccoli rob. New York... read more

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...

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

We met my niece for dinner. This is a fine dining restaurant that is still laid back and relaxing. The salad bar had plenty to offer. Our entrées were delicious and the service was wonderful.

As a local, I go to The Snapper several times a month, usually for lunch or for Happy Hour before catching a movie . It is quiet and comfortable with good service and some stand out dishes, like the clam chowder, tequila shrimp and the prime rib sandwich. Recently I also discovered the bar has a great margarita, one of... More

This restaurant, from the moment we entered the door was incredible! Taylor, the hostess, was engaging and entertaining. Rachel the bartender who was also our waitress was a mixologist! She was knowledgeable about the wine characteristics and able to make a drink from specific specifications. The service was quick, efficent, and over all impeccable. The food was so awesome we...

Excellent food and value. The atmosphere is a little dark and 70's style, but the staff is friendly, the location is great, the food is really good, the drinks great as well!

They need to upgrade their atmosphere, salad bar, and menu. It was great service, but we found the menu hadn't changed much in 20 years.

We were seated right away. Staff if friendly, prices are high but food was good and service was excellent. I had the salmon and it was delicious.

We stumbled upon this place and thought we would give it a try. My husband ordered a filet with crab legs and he was very pleased with the crab legs, but the cook did a terrible job on his steak. I ordered the catch of the day which was a seasoned salmon. It was good, but not great. I think... More
