Me at the Fat Snook

Elegant ! Excellent presentation from the waitstaff explanations to the food itself. Not much of a location but the surprise is inside. Giving new meaning to (its what's inside that counts. )This by far is the best experience I've had at a restaurant in Florida.

I agree with others that the outside of this restaurant does not prepare you for the quality dining experience on the inside. We did not at all find it "pretentious" but sincere and seriously good food without a lot of showy nonsense. Our waiter, Dante, was VERY well informed about their offerings and their preparations, responsive, and attentive. The dishes... More

Celebrating valentine day a few days after and it was amazing. The fresh catch choices were amazing and the filet was awesome. For dessert we had the mile high key lime pie!!!! It's the best of the best outside of the keys. If you never been to the fat snook you must make it a priority!!!

Had friends visiting from out of state and wanted a good meal to celebrate their visit. It was also Valentine's Day. Fat Snook had a special fixed price 6 course menu with an available wine pairing. Each dish was perfectly prepared, had excellent presentation and unique ingredient combinations making each a visual and taste delight. Service was excellent and well... More

Not an eye popping appearance from the outside; actually, low profile. But the inside changes to a pleasant and quaint atmosphere. And the menu is top rate! The Sea Bass (the night special for our visit) was 5 star. The service was the best I have seen on the east coast, And the desert (I normally do not do desert)... More

I had heard nothing but good things about the Fat Snook and this day I got to experience it for myself. Made reservations, was seated immediately. Atmosphere was relaxed and warm, service was prompt and inviting. I was craving the Duck but once the waitress described the preperation of the Mahi Mahi and the Golden Tile fish my palette shift...

Once we got past the three minute introduction from the server about how special their restaurant is and how emeril did some show there, we really enjoyed our visit. Wouldn't have minded the dissertation nearly as much if they had done it after taking our drink order. Again, once we got past that and were determined to forget about it,... More

I came here for my birthday and it was a lovely experience> Food and service are top quality. You need to book to get in but is worth the effort. A good romantic atmosphere for that special dinner.
