“Hang On Snoopy, Snoopy Hang On!”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Snoopys on Padre Island is an excellent fish shack! Food and ambiance are top notch (unless you're looking for white linen napkins). The fried combo platter ($14.95) included Mahi, shrimp, oysters and fries. All served on paper plates. For the health conscious -- not one drop of oil or grease stained our plates! Excellent flavor. Perfect setting on the water lets you enjoy magnificent sunsets while you sip a brew or other libation. We WILL return!

“Seafood Heaven”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

We searched to find the number one place to eat in Corpus and after some digging found this little gem! After talking to locals all week this is the place to go. The food was delicious and quick to arrive, and the view was great as well. I will definitely be back to Snoopy's.

“The Location is the Special Part, Not So Much the Food”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Driving in from to CRP at the end of a 550 mile day, I searched TA for some seafood that was good, local and with a nice gulf view. I got at least one of the three. The view at sunset was special. The food, unfortunately, was kind of average. Not bad mind you, just not what I was expecting given the location. Another place is right next door called Don's. I debated and selected Snoopy's.Snoopy's and Don's share a big piece of land at the foot of the bridge on the Padre Island side of the lagoon.I found the shrimp to be an the small side and not as plump as I would have hoped given their location. The fried coating on the drum reminded me of something that can be found at a not so good Chinese take out place.
All in all sort of underwhelming.

“Fresh Tasty Fried Self-Service Seafood Is What You Get”
Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

My wife, boys, and I were in Corpus Christi on vacation and was looking for some great fresh local gulf seafood which surprisingly seems to be very limited there as compared to other gulf cities. Snoopy's is simple as simple gets. Its like going into a fast food joint that only accepts cash (there is an ATM at the front door).The girl at the front that took our order was not really friendly. The menu is pretty basic with fried fish, shrimp, and oysters. If you dont like fried foods dont eat here. They take your name and call you to come get it when it is ready.The drinks are canned drinks only with tea being the only refillable. The restaurant is overlooking the backwaters of the bay so it is nice. When we got the food, it was definitely fresh. IT was the BEST fried Sea dwelling Fish I had ever had and the shrimp was great also. The fixins were good.It cost about $75 for a family of 5 to eat so it wasnt too bad. Simply put this is a local simple dive that has great fried seafood but operates at a LOW overhead which honestly takes away from the experience. There is another seafood restaurant right beside this one that is full service and has a larger menu but seemed to be a little more expensive, so to each his own. I wanted Snoopys to be great but due to the lack of hospitality and self service it is just good.

“Great Food”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

I had the seafood combo platter with fried fish, shrimp and oysters. I shared this with my son and he liked it. Normally, I do like fried food, but this was really good. Tasted very fresh. My husband had the fish tacos and said the same thing. It was nice to be able to eat outside beside the pier. You could see fish in the water and seagulls and pelicans flying. Would definitely return.
