I had eaten here before when visiting and found it to be unique for the area. Many of the places here fry their fish ( Yuck) but they have an excellent variety of locally caught fresh fish an the preparations are wonderful. I went with a business associate and I had a local cobia, a swordfish type cut, grilled and presented on top of the best sauce ( very little, just to compliment it) and a black bean cake and heirloom tomatoes. It was unbelievable. My friend had the scallops and shrimp dish from their menu and she loved it. Excellent! Cant say enough about this place which has been there for 6 years now. It is a bit hard to find and reservations are suggested since its small. Denise was out server and her knowledge of the menu, the preparations and recommendations were amazing. Love this place

My first visit. Make reservations as is a small quaint restaurant. I called day of and was able to get in, but was during the week. Will definitely go back again when in the area. We shared the blue crab appetizer and I had the spinach salad and Cobia. All was perfectly prepared and nice presentation. Sarah was our server - attentive and knowledgable.

The food and fusion you can't make at home...nor had at your own local "great restaurant".This is uncanny fusion of tastes ..do not miss the blue crab appetizer of the day, and check out the local fish dishes. Whoever the chef, a master of herbs and textures. Also, an added attraction for menus education is Erica, our server.

The 1st time I visited the Fat Snook it was great (see my 1st review). This time was on the weekend not during the week when it was slower. Unlike the first time, the server was impatient with us and would not even consider letting us make any changes to the way the food was prepared because of our dietary needs. I will give them one more try but if it is like this last time I will go elsewhere in the future!
