After shelling the beaches of sanibel for 5 hours we decided it was time to eat. We decided on this restaurant because it really catches your eye from the street. My husband and I and our 3 kids ages 3,4 and 10 were excited to go inside. There were no tables but tall counters to stand at inside. We found... More

The hot dogs were good, fries were a little greasy. There are not seats inside the restaurant but they have a few tables outside. Try the hot dogs!!

Have been to schnapper's for years and went again last night. Very disappointed. Bun was stale and fries tasted like they had been fried and reheated. So sad since this has always been a favorite on Sanibel

The menu is basic fast food. The fries were not noteworthy. Shared a serving and we didn't eat all of them. The hot dogs are the most ordinary yet expensive we've had. If your kids want hot dogs there are more affordable places nearby.

We have been coming to Sanibel Island and Schnapper's for many years. Hell we owned a house just down the road from here. So none the less we have eaten many meals here. Well over the past few years we have noticed a decline in food and service. This was always the first stop on our gastrointestinal adventures of vacation.... More

When you specialize in hot dogs, the dog should be at least pretty good. Not today. The cold condiments made the hot dog cold as well. And the bun was stale. Not always this bad, but never excellent.

We had hot dogs there before but never pizza. We ordered a large plus bbq chicken wings. Both surpassed our expectations. They were delicious. Highly recommended.

My new husband took me to Schnappers the day after he proposed to me on Fort Myers Beach. We had so much fun! The hot dogs are the best! And after you have that....you get to have ice cream! The people were friendly and fun. Such a wonderful place to visit not far from the beach! We will definately go... More
