When you walk into a place and they don't even seat you but point you to a table without giving you a menu you know it's going to be a terrible experience. First of all never sit near the kitchen the people standing around in there were filthy. YUK! Second the scallops they had the nerve to charge $22 for were small and didn't melt in your mouth like they claim on the menu. This place even ruined fries they were terrible. Will never go back!

We went to Snockeys on a Groupon. Always wanted to check it out. The place was dirty, the service poor and the food quality was a disgrace. My scallops were gray! Do not waste your time and money.

Service and food quality were just so-so. We had a party of six and we all agreed that the food was nothing special. Prices were moderate to higher than average. This was not worth the trip.

A little worn at the edges, but great food done well. Go back as a couple and with friends and not once disappointed.

Everything was horrible !! I had little necks as my appetizer...the cocktail sauce was some retched mix of mayo and ketchup and the horseradish was NOT spicy at all which blew my seafood high. Then I had the fried combo...the mash potatoes was ok (at best), the string beans were crunchy, undercooked, and inedible. The fried oysters were the about 4 inches big with a teeny tiny piece of oyster in it about the size of a dime. The scollops were...eeh ! The shirmp were fried to hard, dried out and had too much breading...I didnt even touch the fish b/c it looked like a brown triangle breaded rock...and...oh my gosh...the crab cakes...were nothing more than filler and I did not taste a hint of crab meat.
I do NOT recommend this place and I would never visit it again!!!
BTW...after I talked about this restaurant with people who recommended it to me, I was informed that, "oh yeah...Snockey's food has gone way down the drain!"
Get it together Snockey's...you have an excellent location and wonderful ambiance...there's no excuse for selling corner-store, low rate, frozen, overly breaded garbage!!! Two thumbs down...BOOOO !!!
