We hadn't visited in years so thought we woukd try it. The restaurant inside felt very dated and tired. The menus were dirty and hard to read. The crab soup was good as were the fries. Crab cake was just ok. Bathroom seriously needs some updating and a better scent.

I live here locally and this is one of the best restaurants in the Cambridge area. The food is good and reasonably priced. You can also sit outside and enjoy a nice view or sit inside. No complaints on this one.

We stopped for drinks and appetizers at Snappers and really enjoyed that it was right on the water - so pretty. Drinks were great and we had fried clam and crab cake appetizers, both excellent - Don't miss it, I'm sure dinner is great too !!

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.
