“Yummy seafood, cute little place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

We really enjoyed our time here. You do get the feeling that the locals are not that interested in having the tourists around here. Got a few sneers when we went around taking some pictures after our meal. It is not sunset side though and they allow smoking on the patio. Yuck

“Much Better this Time!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

Enjoyed a delicious lunch here today. Unlike our last visit, the service was EXCELLENT; Jenn, our Server was terrific. I had the blackened chicken ceasar salad. Portion was very generous; love...love the bread!!! My friend had the fried Lobster Salad (fried in a beer something)...loved it. Prices are very reasonable here compared to most in K-Largo.
Keep up the good work; we'll be back again soon!!!

“Live Music, Decent Food and Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

Due to the proximity to Dove Creek Lodge, where we were staying (not to mention the 10% off coupons the hotel offers!), my wife and I visited Snappers three times recently. The first time was for dinner, the second was for appetizers and drinks and the last was for happy hour. They have live music in late afternoons and evenings, at least on weekends. It is right on the water and there are slips for boats to pull up. We found the food decent enough. We actually enjoyed the appetizers with salads to be more enjoyable than the entrées. I did enjoy a stuffed hogfish for dinner, but my wife's rare tuna spring roll appetizer was creative and delicious. I had ordered the calamari appetizer (it comes three ways -- I had the fra diablo) and when this huge bowl of rings in spicy red sauce appeared, I was certain that there must have been an entrée portion on the menu that I missed and which was what I was brought. But no, that was the appetizer! That, along with and a salad with wine, was plenty for a tasty meal. Unlike some other reviewers, we found the bar staff friendly and attentive.

Just to mention, they have two entrances which we found confusing. To be seated at a table you have to go in the main front door. There's another entrance off the south part of the parking lot that says "Snappers Waterfront Restaurant" over it which takes you immediately to outside tables and bars. Perhaps they should add "Bar Entrance" because if you go in that way there's no one to greet you. You have to go back inside to find the host/hostess station to get a table.

“Right across from our hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

This restaurant was right across from our hotel, and they have great food. We ate there the first night of our trip, and the fish was great. You can sit outside, and they have live music most of the evenings.
