“Best meal of the trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

My husband, myself and our 6 year old dined here recently and it was fabulous!!! My husband who is somewhat picky got the coconut shrimp and declared it as one of the best meals he has ever had!!! My daughter and I had the salmon which was cooked to perfection. At the end of our meal, we believe it was the owner (?), came over to our table with complimentary lemon cello for me and my hubby. It was a nice touch.....

“A change of pace on the coast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

We'd been past the snook a couple of times and noticed the parking lot was usually full, so we decided to stop in one night. Maybe it was just our preconceived notion of the usual fare in the local coastal haunts along A1A, but this place is certainly different. While the condos/dunes and sea oats are right across the street, the snook is a very 'city' style restaurant, modern decor, and a big wine list. This atmosphere comes with a price - highest place we've eaten at in many years in this part of the world - but I can't really say it was over priced for what we got. Market price for the fresh fish dishes were fair. We're not wine drinkers, so no comment on the wine list. If you want to 'up' your casual dining while on the coast, not a bad place to stop in - just be ready for the price difference.

“Excellent and interesting food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Great place to get dinner and worth the price. The server was very helpful and friendly. Aside from the unreasonable hostess being determined to seat me at the bar instead of any of the open tables (there were two other people in the entire restaurant), my experience was fantastic.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

Wonderful. Must try the scallop appetizer and the crabcake appetizer. Key lime pie was amazing. Nice wine list. Worth a trip for sure.

“Best fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

Really inventive, really fresh, the ONLY problem, is the limit tables. Make sure you get there early.
