Not a new place, off the beaten path, atmosphere not great, little hard to find, however the food is spectacular, I had the best blackened mahi mahi that I had every had, wife had prime rib, which was also great.

We almost passed by this restaurant because the exterior is lacking and most nights appeared to be closed early by 9ish (maybe from low season?). Small menu but food was very good. Mostly fried shrimp, grilled fish, etc.

Being a local, my husband and I eat at Hognose Snapper very often. Never had a bad meal or bad service. Of course we do not go to a seafood restaurant named Hognose Snapper and order beef either!!! Dan prepares only fresh seafood, vegetables, salads, and breads. Creme Brule' is the best. Always a gourmet meal for a non-gourmet price.... More

Heard about this place through the grapevine, was told the locals went there; this place is amazing, everything home made; bread and butter for starters, then we had lobster spring rolls, grouper and mahi mahi sandwiches; The service was great; will gladly go there again..

I also went here based on reviews on trip advisor. This was the first disappointment I've found based on reviews. Horrible customer service right from the start. Felt like I was inconveniencing them by walking in the door and wanting a table. One of my kids order chicken sandwich not very good mostly bread. Other order chicken Alfredo off the... More

I ate there with my family and we absolutely loved it! The grouper was excellent and the burgers were grilled to perfection. It has an atmosphere that all family members will enjoy.

Why this restaurant is called Hognose snapper is beyond me. There is no snapper on the menu. There was 6 of us on vacation, we went her based on trip advisor reviews. The food was TERRIBLE, the worst we had all week on vacation. Husband had ribeye steak, the worst he ever had, flavorless like rubber. We never send food... More

First of all, if you decide to dine here, I recommend you look up the address for this place and trust NO GPS or navigation. We spent a very long time hunting this place down because of its reviews, and after sight-seeing without intention finally found it standing in an unassuming building with a gravel lot. Like others have said... More
