Stopped by to have lunch while in port for the schooner race. Great views of the harbor and the Choptank River. The food was delicious and the drinks were full and well made. Fun people and great wait staff.

I can imagine Snappers being a very popular spot during the tourist season with its outdoor cabana and the views of the beautiful boats. Fortunately we found the restaurant on the off season and late in the afternoon when we could miss the crowds. We found the food to be excellent and the scenery just what we had hoped for... More

This place was recommended to me by three VERY different people - a sophisticated innkeeper, a transplanted small business owner, and a retired shipbuilder. I figured they couldn't all be wrong.The decor is a bit kitschy on the inside, but the outside seating has great views of the drawbridge. And the crabcake... I'm still thinking about that crabcake...

Met there tonight to celebrate a family birthday with family members all coming from long distances. The food and the service was great! The grilled cheese with crab dip and bacon was terrific. Everyone else also raved about their food. My only complaint is that there was live music and our large table was located just around the corner from... More

I was staying at the Hyatt nearby from work and just googled best seafood near me, snappers popped up and I gave it a try, happy I did!! I'm not sure why anyone would knock the atmosphere, it was a true Caribbean bar- low key, low maintenance, right on the water. Very relaxing after a long day. They weren't busy,... More

For a area so rich in seafood this was the worse food I've ever had. How can you serve crab that awful when you have work boats docked right in front of your restaurant? Service matched the food.

My husband and I are on vacation from the LBI Jersey shore. This is our best meal this week. The homemade Sangria was yummy. We order the Crab Balls and the Mahi Mahi bites to start. I absolutely recommend the Crab Balls. I ordered the Broiled Lump Crab, no roll need and a Caesar Salad for my side. Again, highly... More

Horrible place. Sat at the bar. Language was highly obscene for it being a restaurant. Pineapple crush was $10😂😂. Damn you can get one for $6 in Ocean city. Husband ordered a mojito. It was HORRIBLE. Husband ordered a bottle beer instead. Server was very rude when we questioned the bill $15 for 2 drinks that sucked. We will not... More

My husband and I stopped in for lunch. Service was great food was not. The scallops were undercooked. I had the jerked shrimp fajitas, the seasoning was so strong they were almost inedible. My husband had fried mahi-mahi which was very bland. It was very over priced for the quality of food.

Thank Rhonda M
