“Fine dining on the beach”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

This restaurant is more geared for adults seeking a fine dining option on the beach. There is typically a long wait (45 minutes +) to get in and reservations are not accepted. Additionally, there isn't a bar to provide drinks while you wait. The service was good and the food was excellent. I had a filet which was perfectly seasoned and grilled. My boyfriend had a seafood dish and was pleased with it. The interior is very small and while the outside dining overlooks Gulf Blvd., it still has a nice ambience.

“Expected more”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

We went for early bird special and had the fried seafood platter special. Good prices. OK but we had been at The Chill the night before and it was so much better and cheaper. It also had nice entertainment. I do not know why this place is rated so highly when the Chill had so much more to offer with cheaper prices. Would not go back despite service and prices being good. Much better dining elsewhere. Least favourite on our 6 night stay .... But still good...just not outstanding.

“Good choice for seafood”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

Snappers is a very nice restaurant. They do not take reservations and do not have a large waiting area. When told it would be 45 minutes we opted to eat outside. It was a chilly evening, but we were seated under a heater, so it was not too bad. They do not serve cocktails, only wine and beer. If we had to wait 45 minutes standing up a cocktail might have helped! The food was excellent. We had a grouped dish that was amazing. We shared an appetizer and an entree. We could not decide and knew it would be too much food if we had both. It was a great choice since the portions are large. We enjoyed a piece of their Key Lime Pie. It was made in house and the best we had in the area. So many restaurants use desserts that are not made on the premises and they are just mediocre. Not the case here. Come or early or late if you do not want to wait. If it is a nice evening I would eat outside again. I hope they expand their bar menu to include cocktails, that would make a long wait a little easier. Worth a visit!
