Yummy for a quick bite

VERY casual and super fun place to bike to. We like sitting at the picnic tables outside so our dog can join us. The hotdogs are great as are the french fries

As usual. The wait was worth it. The hot dogs and beats are authentic meaty and delicious. Crispy fries. great onion rings. Just the best

With all the places to dine on Sanibel, Schnapper's doesn't make our top 10! Sure, they're signature food is the hot dog, but their dogs aren't mouth watering! Being from the north, we have our share of hot dog joints and nationally ranked ones at that! The dogs aren't skinless and have more of a sausage deli like taste! If... More

If you have ever had a bad day and work in the hospitality business it's not always peaches and cream. Take a step back and put yourself in other people's shoes before you say some nonsense that is only your opinion to begin with that could potentially harm a person's livelihood that never personally did you wrong in any way...

The food was good as was the ice cream. The customer service was AWFUL! The guy who helped us after I asked for help twice in the same visit is the first staff member I'd be replacing. This Mike guy didn't have it in him for customer service. Being on Sanibel Island and this type of business is all about... More

Nice spot for a relaxed, no frills lunch. 5 long benches outside for people to eat at, otherwise just high Ron tables to stand and eat. Dogs and wings were good, as were the milkshakes. Would definitely eat here again!

The kids and I loved coming here for ice cream. The portions are huge and the service is great. The ice cream is wonderful and there are many choices. They don't have much seating though but it's worth it. We heard the food was great too.

Our first family trip to Sanibel and we happily stumbled upon Schnappers amongst all of the restaurants which seem to be present at every turn. When we saw that Schanppers was full of locals, we knew we found the right place. My wife is from Cape Cod and the food here--especially the fish and chips-reminded her of home. Everything we...

One of my favorite places in the island. Great very friendly staff. Try the slaw dog and my new favorite ice cream combo, key lime pie and toasted coconut. Doesn't get any better.
