We took my two children to the restaurant and from the minute we walked in we were welcomed with smiles and great spirits. Katie was our server and she was wonderful. We had the prime rib entree and the swordfish special and the kids each had the fried fish. Everything from the salad bar to the sides and everything in... More

Our hotel recommended this place. We debated since we had already chosen another restaurant, but decided to give it a try. It is one of the best meals we have had on our trip! i had prime rib and really like it done on the rare side of medium, which is hard to explain. It came out perfect and melted... More

Fish 1,000 miles from water is surely a crap shoot but we took a chance but, sadly, everything we got had zero flavor...yes, the staff was good and the restaurant was clean and orderly. But the baked potato was unbaked and inedible and the two fish entrees were just weird.. This restaurant set the standard for everywhere we ate in... More

The fish was just ok, nothing to write home about & wasn't worth the 75$ bill when we left, the salad bar was the best part of all, i would have just had the salad bar if i had known, small portions & not all that tasty. 2 people with one appetizer & no drinks. Service was great..

Having many restaurants to choose from, we wandered into The Red Snapper and were greeted by friendly, accommodating staff and a soothing ambience. Our server, Ben, was genuinely friendly and adept. The wine menu held some gems. Our food was absolutely delectable. It was served up in a timely fashion; the staff were attentive but not overbearing. I have to... More

We love the Red Snapper. The new menu and wine list offer excellent dining options including their new Lighter Fare. The food is always fresh and well prepared, the staff is attentive and friendly. We enjoy the fresh salad bar as well as the entrees. The Red Snapper offers a varied set menu as well as daily specials. The Ahi... More
