Sometimes it is best to keep it a bit simple. We had the two specials, golden file fish and grouper, the file fish was wonderful the grouper overthought. The description of the grouper required taking notes and it was to much for such a wonderful delicate fish. The file fish was simply prepared... read more

This was one of the most satisfying and excellent meals we have had in a long time. She crab soup was excellent, and the main courses were divine. The tile fish (Catch #2--a signature, I believe) was topped with fennel & juniper, grapefruit zest, and served on delicate and subtly flavored romanescu -- a myriad of sophisticated and subtle flavors,...

Besides the quality of service, the interesting menu,and the excellence of the presentation- portions are perfect. The only problems are ,because it is so popular, the lack of parking. Also,the red wines are served cold. I prefer the "old world " method of room temperature.

Fabulous service. Inventive entrees. THE BEST KEY LIME PIE EVER (& WE MAKE A STUDY OF THIS DESSERT). Blue Crab appetizer (changes nightly) spectacular in early April 2015.

This small eatery serves the best fish in the area, if you appreciate creative dishes and types of fish you will not encounter everywhere else. Best place around for a special meal out. Wish it were on the water or in a scenic location, but you can't top the food.

I can honestly say that everything was excellent from start to finish including the service, appetizer, salad, entrée, dessert, wine & espresso. Highly recommend and well worth the price!

It's a very quaint spot with amazing food, a relaxing ambiance and stellar staff. Definitely worth trying and we will be back for sure. The only tricky part is parking...I guess the good news is getting out :-)

We love The Fat Snook's sister restaurant, Crush 11, so I decided to make reservations here for my husband's birthday celebration. We loved the food...fresh, creative and full of flavor. Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. Our only disappointment was the table that had been reserved for us. It was positioned right by the kitchen door and in the... More

Ate here on our first night ever in Cocoa Beach, and were excited as the restaurant appeared to be much better than most of the places on the A1A - and it was. Lovely décor and nice atmosphere and our server, Brian, was terrific. We both had the fish special which, as Brian told us, tasted best when we combined... More
