A great place for casual food

We were looking for casual dining while enjoying the Sanibel beach. We stopped at Schnappers Dogs. Great hot dogs and french fries but the grouper sandwich was fantastic. We ate there 3 times in one day.

My daughter loved the kids hot dog and fries served in a boat with a special kiddie surprise included. The food is prepared individually so be prepared to wait. Not cheap and not too healthy. Not too many comfortable places to sit and eat, so it seems better as take-out.

We could not get enough! had to go back for a second day! The batter coating was the best we had ever had, no one else on the island can compare!

I'm not a big fan of hot dogs, but I will always make an exception for a Schnapper's chili dog! And their fries, absolutely tastey! Definitely a place to go when visiting the island!

The island doesn't have your normal fast food (that's a GREAT thing). We stopped here on the way back to the condo and took back burgers, grouper and haddock sandwiches. All were great. Fries are fresh cut, onion rings are battered and fried when ordered. Great place for good "fast" food.

We make sure to stop at Schnapper's each year we return to Sanibel. Good food, quick service and nice people. Couldn't ask for anything more.

My foot long was as dry as a Slim Jim. My husbands dog with sauerkraut was nothing special..grocery store type hot dog. Buns are not toasted. I would go there, however, for the ice cream. We had great choc malt shakes (albeit almost 6 bucks each) and sampled several flavors of locally made ice cream. Would recommend stopping for that.... More

While we did not try their regular food, their ice cream was outstanding. If you look closely on their sign, you will see it says over 40 flavors of ice cream and they were not kidding. They allow you to try flavors and told my daughter she could try all of them if she wanted to. Between the 4 of... More
