“Great little get away!”
Reviewed July 3, 2011

We make it a point to come here everytime we're down here! We love the atmosphere, the food, the staff- everything! Just be ready to enjoy whatever weather the texas coast has to throw at you at the time of your visit because the entire restaraunt is left open to the exterior and there is no a/c but is bearable due to the numerous amount of fans. Tips: its a cash only restaraunt, the tea has endless refills (soda comes in cans) and Scoopy's next door is great for dessert (esp. The sticky rice and cream and they have super clean restrooms)!

“Overpriced medicore fare but the view is nice”
Reviewed June 12, 2011

We go to coast alot and normally end our day trying out local places. Went there Saturday evening...the line outside got us a little excited. The atmosphere is good in the evening on the water enjoying the sunsets and sights. The food is overpriced and and really medicore. Wife and I had the shrimp and oysters and were disappointed. Typical Sysco off the truck stuff. The fries, hush puppies and cole slaw was fast-food. Almost 30 bucks for a few shrimp and oysters plus a couple of cans of Pepsi. Do yourself a favor...go to seafood market buy some good shrimp for 8 bucks a pound, cook them, and eat them sitting by the water (which there is plenty of) somewhere else. This place is all tourist.

“Our favorite for more than 20 years and never disappoints!”
Reviewed June 8, 2011

Located under the JFK bridge on the way out to Padre Island, the views at Snoopy's can't be beat. The food is excellent. We usually start with the crab stuffed jalapenos - not too hot and a great way to start a meal. I like the half combo - two fried shrimp, two fried oysters, and two pieces of fried fish, french fries and cole slaw. The batter on the shrimp and fish are especially light and have spoiled me for chain seafood restaurants! My husband orders the fish sandwich every time and loves it. The shrimp salad is another favorite. One daughter always orders the shrimp and rice, the other just gets an order of boiled peel yourself shrimp since they're not into fried food. Right next door to Snoopy's is Scoopy's - an ice cream shop! My grandkids know if they go to Snoopy's they'll get to run around and look at sea birds and fish, and for sure get ice cream. What's not to like?
Even though Snoopy's is sort of an open air restaurant with no air conditioning, we have figured out the optimal place to sit for each season of the year: Winter- in the small interior part of the restaurant near the very unusual fireplace (we even went there for a laid back New Year's Eve once!), Spring and Fall: on the sort of porch with a gorgeous view of the Laguna Madre and the JFK bridge. Summer: between Snoopy's and Scoopy's there is a very nice cross breeze and some covered seating that actually makes dining tolerable even in the hottest of temperatures.
Snoopy's is cash only, but they do have an ATM on the premises. You order as you come in and get your drinks (canned soft drinks, bottled beer and wine), find a seat and wait for your name to be called. Then you go get your food and any sauces and other condiments you need and then you enjoy!!!
We used to love to go after work on Friday night, get some Shiner Bocks, kick back and watch the sunset as we ate a leisurely dinner. Now we're retired and can go anytime-and we do!

“Bring Cash! Leave Happy!”
Reviewed April 11, 2011

Snoopy's is extremely good and has never disappointed me! Bring Cash or be prepared to pay fees at their atm machine inside the restaurant! Go with something fried! Great atmosphere for visitors who want the beach and vacation feeling! Strongly recommend!
