“Delicious food! Great Atmosphere! YOU MUST GO!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

We just came across this restaurant from some suggestions from locals. They said it was a nice place with good food but we never expected it to be as good as it was. First, the service was phenomenal! Our waitress was so attentive and sweet. She was always around so we never had to try and flag her down. The food was delicious!! I got a salad with seared Tuna and it was mouthwatering. The portion was just right for me. My friend got the pasta and it came in this really cool plate with the extra shredded cheese on the side. Really really good food….. but the absolute best part about this place is the place itself! outdoor seating with a huge canopy, huge tiki lights, coconut trees all over, beautiful plants and a slightly sanded are with these huge U shaped poofy white couches, live music, relaxing lighting….. PARADISE!! We came for dinner but the following hour and a half we just chilled in the couches area. The people were really friendly.

I STRONGLY RECOMMEND!!!

“Cool place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

We sat at the huge "all-round" bar as it was a little chilly outside under the stars. Fast, friendly service and the food was excellent

“Great atmosphere, okay food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

Ordered the Stone Crab, it was nothing to write home about, but okay. The wait staff was on top of things the entire night, great job. The music / entertainment was nice while eating dinner. The pier at night was pretty cool to walk on. The bar area was very spacious and a great place to sip on a few.

“A "must see" location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

We stayed at the hotel alongside and were told Snooks was the place to visit. We walked around not expecting too much and then WOW, we were really surprised.

We initially sat at the bar and had a couple of drinks and some bar food. The staff were great, taking the time to talk to us about our travels etc.

Afterwards we moved over to the tables (which are apparently separate from the Bar as they billed separately) to have our evening meal. The food was excellent, as too was the service.

It doesn't end there with Snooks as the view is breathtaking, particularly at sunset, and the live entertainment is superb. The whole time we were there a man was very skillfully playing the steel-drum in the background which really topped-off a tremendous overall atmosphere.

I would seriously recommend this restaurant as a place not to be missed in Key Largo.
