“So nice we ate there twice!”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

Found Snappers on TripAdvisor - we were looking for a good place to enjoy my birthday dinner. We were seated immediately at a small table overlooking the water. Our servers were friendly and attentive. The food was excellent - I had one of the specials offered, grilled jumbo shrimp served with thin asparagus spears and a creamy risotto. My husband suggested that the food was so good we should go back a second time so we visited again before leaving The Keys. Again the servers were friendly and knowledgeable about the night's specials. My husband's entree was a flash-fried hogfish, served whole with snap peas and coconut rice. It was a unique presentation and not at all greasy. My choice was the grilled Wahoo which was drizzled with a teriyaki-type glaze and served with mixed vegetables served tempura-style. It was all very tasty. The dinner menu was a little pricey but it was all seafood so we were prepared. Hope to visit them again on a future visit!

“Great setting, OK Food, Really Slow Services”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

1st the positives, the setting for Snapper's is wonderful, sitting dockside in the Keys looking out on the Atlantic waiting to be served. But then again there are a plethora of eateries in the Keys that offer the same view and laid back feel. Negatives: by waiting to be served, I do mean waiting and waiting and waiting. From the time we were seated it took 20 minutes for someone to take our drink order, another 20 minutes to bring the drinks, 20 more minutes for anyone to take our order and then 40 minutes to prepare and serve our food and then they got the kids order wrong. We were just passing through on our way to Islamorada looking to grab a bite to eat with a 4 and 6 yr. old along. Its not easy to control 2 small children in a restaurant for that long. Fortunately they were able to entertain themselves watching schools of baitfish along the docks. For all that waiting the food was just Ok. Good food but nothing special or worth waiting an hour and a half for..... Definitely won't be stopping here again. Summary: Nice People, Nice Setting, Avg. Food, Really Slow Service.

“Fabulous view”
Reviewed November 24, 2012 via mobile

The view is very pretty but the food is just ok. If you do go make sure to ask for a waterside table which simewhat makes up for the bland food and mediocre service.

“Good lunch stop”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

Food is passable, service quite good. Good happy hour on the deck. The fourth star is pretty much attributable to the outdoor seating areas and the bar's great view.
