Good food, staff friendly, efficient, price reasonable. Besides hotdogs, a few other things on menu who want something else. Seating outside, mostly under cover. Easy access and parking.

Schnapper's is nothing more or less than it purports to be. It's delicious, uncomplicated, honest feel-good food. Burgers and dogs and enough creativity in the menu to give you some real, hard choices. The good kind. So far, everything has been delicious. It's pretty clear that these folks understand and care about food. There's real thought put into the menu,... More

This place is really good although a little expensive, but everything is on the island. Good old fashioned dog (not skinless) unless you order the kids boiled dog which is skinless. Also, had great chicken wings. The ice cream looked good but we were too full to try any. I would go back.

A must stop if you are on Sanibelle island and are hungry for a quick bite or snack! It's absolutely adorable place with great guys working behind the counter! The French fries were the best fries I have ever had....loved them had to go twice to get them cause they were so delicious! Hotdogs and cheese burgers were other items... More

Quick and yummy food on the island-the dogs are good and the fries are yummy. We brought the kids back in the evening for ice cream which was so cool to choose from all the flavors. I would rate it higher than the other ice cream shops on the island.

Superior tasting hot dogs and the accutraments. Schnapper's several times during our annual Sanibel vacation is a requirement. Also, they've got the BEST quality Tshirts around. Tbe material; especially the collar holds up even aftermany washes.

I thought the food was good but it wasn't fabulous for the price. I would have been just as happy at Dairy Queen. We had a long wait and there was no seating with a table available, even after sitting on a bench eating for twenty minutes.

We stopped here after the Sanibel July 4th parade. My wife and I had a cheeseburger with the works. The burgers were large and char grilled. Very tasty! The toppings were fresh. This is one of the best burgers on the Island!
