If you like greasy fried, nothing special, seafood in an outdoor environment under a bridge, where you stand in line to order only to find they don't take credit cards, then you find there are no empty tables, then this is the place for you.
There are several other newer and better restaurants in the area.

My wife, step-son and I were here on spring break. We stopped at Snoopys on our way to Mustang Island for lunch. It was the best seafood experience we had in Corpus, or South Texas for that matter!

The ambience, the cold beer, fried shrimp and the corn battered drum fish were our favorites! This place beats most seafood places anywhere!

This resturant has a beautiful view of the sunsetting over the bay, but not much to offer food wise. You order at a counter and they call your name when it is ready. It's not overly expensive, but you get what you pay for. We had to wait 45ish minutes.. Not many food options on the island to choose from!

We are repeat customers to Snoopy's due to the quality of food and the atmosphere. I have never been let down on either account. That being said, there are a few things a first time visitor MUST know:
CASH ONLY - it is part of the efficiency
SODA and BEER - don't come in looking for froofy bevs (I think tea is an option)
FRIED - the food is not primarily grilled or broiled. If you abhor fried, well.....
LINE - there may be a long line to place your order. Many of us don't mind the line because we
ENJOY the food and atmosphere
SEATING - it isn't a guarantee. You take what you get; share with strangers; Watch departing
customers like a hawk

All of that aside, the fish n chips are wonderful. The jumbo peel n eat shrimp are HUGE (the size of chicken strip). The fried shrimp is yummy, with perfect breading. LOVE their cole-slaw....fresh, not mayo laden or too sweet. Hush puppies were not too hard, not too soft, not heavy on the meal. They were light, crispy and hot. The hamburger (Snoopy Burger) was DELICIOUS....boasting a homemade bun!!!!!
We watched the sun set and the local aviary species all from our 'front row' seats.
The beer is cold. The food, hot n fresh. The view, beyond comparison. Great for loud families and post beach attire. Did I mention dessert at Scoopy's Ice Cream Parlor?
We will continue to visit as this has become a favorite repeat location, despite the line.
On a final note- only the rude feed the gulls from their table. if you don't want to be asked to leave, PLEASE don't feed the Seagulls!!!!!

As I clam myself at home, I am always sceptical about raw shellfish elsewhere. Snoopy's did not disappoint as we went there 3X in 30 days. Always had a dozen oysters with bowl of soup & half shrimp salad sandwich, or fried shrimp sandwich...delicious!
