About
Snoopys Pier was literally a product of the Redfish Wars, a battle over commercial fishing rights in the inland waterways and bay systems of Texas. Over time, the place was transformed with a lot of hard work and patience into a family-friendly seafood restaurant. We have an on-site fish house and shrimp breading facility that enables us to monitor and control the quality and freshness of our seafood. In 1993 Scoopy's was added to give Snoopy's customers a choice of tasty treats. Since then, Snoopy's continues to be listed as the best on-the-water dining experience in Corpus Christi, as well as one of the top coastal restaurants in the country and a must-see part of the Texas Coast.

Sunset Island is the setting for Snoopy’s Pier. It was easy off easy on just past the JF Kennedy Bridge. There may be no visible sunset tonight from Sunset Island nor even any midday sun peaking through the sky, but it was a nostalgic feeling...sitting by the water and watching the pelicans emerge out of the fog while enjoying scrumptious mahi mahi tacos. The quiet Christmas music added to the tasty food and peaceful feeling.More

Apparently, Snoopy's is under new ownership and it is not for the better. On Election Day, I decided to take my wife on the long drive out to the island for the best fresh caught fried fish I have ever eaten. Upon arrival, I noticed...the fancy new sign and the largely empty parking lot. For the past 25 years, I have never seen Snoopy's virtually empty like this. We walked right up to the counter and noticed that the menu had changed. I asked what the fresh fish of the day was and was told that the fish was all mahi mahi that was shipped in. NO MORE FRESH CAUGHT FISH! We placed our order for the fried fish, fried shrimp and the one of a kind delicious coleslaw. Got a table out on the deck and discovered that Snoopy's Pier was no more. The dock that had been there for decades was gone. Makes sense because it's not necessary anymore for the daily fresh caught fish deliveries. So much for most of the sea coast ambiance. So we get into the food. The fish was nothing like the juicy tender almost perfect experience it had been for decades. It was actually a little fishy tasting, which is really not a good thing at all. The shrimp was OK, but we've had better in Corpus Christi. The coup de grâce was the once one of a kind coleslaw, which was no longer unique in any way. The best coleslaw I have ever eaten was a crisp mixture of cabbage, carrots and a light sprinkling of fresh jalapeño in a rice vinegarette dressing was no more. To be fair, the young employees did their very best to do what they could with what they had to work with. I felt bad for them working at an almost empty restaurant that used to be a Corpus Christi institution and sure was looking like it will go under soon. The wonderful service by these young hardworking people is the main reason for two stars instead of one. The food was very average and a disappointment for a seafood restaurant right on the water. Needless to say, we will not return. I guess if we do go back to the island for seafood, we will give Doc's Seafood & Steaks a try. At least their parking lot was pretty full for a rainy Tuesday evening...More

Snoopy's has become my daughter's and my favorite restaurant when we visit Mustang Island. We saw the best sunset there in September, and we are both very fond of the Chatter Jack Shrimp dish; it's so tasty. In addition, wine is only $5.00 a glass....Snoopy's is not fancy, if that's what you want; you order when you come in, and your name is called. It suits us very well.More

Had the combo meal and fried shrimp. Barely one half step above Long John Silvers. Too much money for order at counter and serve yourself.

Disjointed place. Over priced for the fried food. Bar tender was nice, but had one speed. Tables were fithky and had to find someone to clean it off and remove trash. Order your food and wait to get called to come and get your food..at...this price I would not expect to have to serve myself, go to two different places to order drinks in one dining experience, fund someone to clean a table and then pick up my own food to serve to my family. Agree with other reviews, over priced Captain Ds or Long John Silver.More

Came here and thought the parking was a zoo and was worried it would take forever. Surprisingly, the line to place your order went fast and we could actually find seats. Plenty of room inside and out. Didn't take a long time to get the...food either. I started out with an order of peel your own shrimp. Boy was that surprisingly expensive. That was the only down side of the event. I followed it up with salad with shrimp, just so I could get as much shrimp in me as I could eat. Very tasty as well. I kinda wish I skipped the peel your own shrimp part. The cost was almost hard to swallow.More

Food was ok , had good flavors but wasn’t hot or fresh tasting. Everything is self serve so for the price I would choose a full service. Prices were high for self service. Portions were also small.

Great view,. on the water. Loved watching the big fish swim below. Great for kids, families or just couples. My fish taco's were not large enough while my husbands were nice and big - so I'm only giving 4 stars. The strawberry Salad was scrumptious....There are no servers so I am not rating that.More

Was excited to try Snoopys based on location and reviews. Upon entering we smelled fuel; we all gave that a pass since boats are nearby. Although during our visit we saw zero boats docked. So not quite sure what the tar like smell was. It...is seat yourself and order at the counter, and they call your name when your order is ready. We ordered fish and chips: the fish pieces were small (not fillet size) and definitely not cod or a flaky white fish. A few of my pieces reminded me more of swordfish consistency. It was greasy and not great. We also ordered the shrimp creole, which was the most disappointing of all the meals. The sauce was sweet with onions and green peppers but also bland. No creole heat. We all tasted it and decided the sauce tasted like spaghettio sauce with things added the best meal was a broiled fish with green peppers, onions, and green olives, it had a flavorful sauce. The sodas are can only, no fountain sodas. There is sweet tea and sweet tea with refills. The view is the only thing I can really recommend here. As others have stated do not believe the high reviews or go with low expectations.More

We wanted some fried fish and shrimp and this place delivers. GREAT fried plates. It’s an order at the counter, grab a drink at the bar, find a spot and wait for them to call your name kinda place. Great for crowds and kids. Plus,...the view is spectacular at sunset. Not fancy, but really good food and a fun vibe! Lots of locals - always a good sign!More

Enjoyed fast and tasty seafood right on the water! We drove like 30 minutes out of the way for this place, which had me nervous, but I am so glad we stopped here! I enjoyed the fish of the day, which can be done in...numerous forms (fried, baked, tacos, etc.). I'm a big fish taco person and they did not disappoint! Also has a nice little bar with some fun and refreshing cocktails. The staff is incredibly friendly from the restaurant to the store inside. And it's next door to an ice cream place. Definitely worth stopping if you're near Corpus Christi! We had a blast!More

Love Snoopy's! Had the fish n chips which were so good, not greasy at all! And their coleslaw is my favorite, no mayo. I switched out the fries for the puppies and it was all delicious. We also had the boiled shrimp which was a...little pricey for 10 shrimp but it was very good. The staff were very friendly and of course the view is amazing. Went back for drinks and sunset, saw the dolphins and beautiful views. If you want fancy - don't stop here. This is casual, order at counter and seat yourself. Pefect beach vibes!More

We swing by snoopys when Doc's next door has a long wait and we are too hungry to wait. I mean, the fish is good and the area to sit and eat is cool but the staff is kinda rude and you just sit there...annoyed the whole time. Won't go back. I gave it three chances and was the same all three on different levels.More

They take reservations but we have heard that it gets very crowded at dinner time. We normally go around 4 pm and have no trouble getting a table.
