I always say that whatever you do, just be good at it! Schnapper's did not disappoint! Retro atmosphere nicely done, good vibe. Nice selection of dogs and char-grilled! Chili dog was an easy "10". Slaw dog, a fun change of pace and definitely one to repeat. Fries are the crowning glory, fresh cut and perfectly fried! Will repeat this adventure... More

Great local dive right on Periwinkle Way. We have been visiting Sanibel for 10+ years and always plan at least one stop at Schnappers. Food is simple, reasonably priced and prepared as ordered. Everything we have tried has been good from the Grouper sandwich to the hot dogs, burgers and wings. What keeps us coming back is the french fries... More

I've been to Schnappers twice now and have been pleasantly surprised by the food quality and reasonable prices. It's now my go to for a last minute grouper sandwich before heading off the island. Delish! Fries are super too.

Great dogs and polish and 40 flavors of ice cream to choose from. Only a few tables to sit at but definitely great for a quick lunch.

The burgers are a little over cooked and it sure would be a plus if Schnapper's stepped up and got a healthier option for the buns! Fries are always awesome!!

This place is quite confusing. You think you'll be able to get a quick bite to eat and end up dropping major cash in some dogs, sausages and fries. For the money you'll spend there are many other restaurant options I'd chose before this.
