Snapper’s first opened it’s doors overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in Key Largo in May of 1989. It’s unique old Florida atmosphere and Caribbean style seafood immediately helped it gain notoriety throughout the Florida Keys and beyond. The view from our Tiki bar, restaurant, or deck overlooking the marina speaks for itself. The building has survived hurricanes, floods, and pillaging by pirates and it’s rumored that the upstairs was once a house of ill repute. All the history, plus the unique coral architecture have helped to develop its character.
Snapper’s offers an eclectic menu of the freshest seafood prepared with Caribbean, Mexican, & Asian flavors. Daily specials based on fresh local fish. Alfresco oceanfront dining for a casual lunch, romantic dinner, or night with the family. Phone: (305) 852-5956 * Email: email@example.com 139 Seaside Ave.
