    The food is generally very good; however, our last few visits have resulted in less than stellar quality in ingredients and availability. Our server last night was very disappointing. He hovered, brought wrong wine (twice) and then told us he was leaving and could we pay (before we ordered dessert). Inconsistency in both quality and service.

    We had a wonderful birthday meal at the Fat Snook! Our server Casey shared the specials with great detail and knowledge and answered questions about the menu. Our water glasses were never empty and he frequently checked in with the table to see if he could get anyone another beer. The whole table raved about how good his service was. We have been here before but are always impressed by the quality of both the food and service. We tried the Mussels from Brussels and the Farmer’s market pasta as starters. Highly recommend both! You also can never go wrong with either of their Fresh Catch options. Definitely a foodie experience on an upscale level that all locals and visitors should try!

    We ate at The Fat Snook for Father's Day, and it was outstanding! Our server, C.J., was wonderful and so accommodating to our various palates. Everything was delicious from the complimentary amuse-bouche to the made in-house desserts. My father had a scrumptuous grilled swordfish, and he said it was the best swordfish he's ever had. Thai fish soup, mussels, swordfish, salmon, duck breast, steak filet--plus vegan options. Everyone will be happy! Note: Beer and wine only.

    We like to sit outside because we have a greater-than-average sensitivity to noise level, but we couldn't sit outside on our recent visit due to weather. The food, service, ambiance, and attention to detail are all outstanding. We also wish they had more parking.

    Our family visited here on vacation from Miami. The food was all very good with great attention to detail. The waitress was very helpful in selecting a wine. For appetizers, we ordered the scallops and deviled eggs. Both were excellent. For the main course, we got the creole shrimp and scallops, beet salad, and cornbread. We got fries and the butter and cheese pasta for the kids. It was appreciated that they offered options for them. We got the bananas foster crème brûlée and the chocolate torte for dessert. Amazing! We had a great time and the service was fantastic. Would definitely come here again if we are in the area.

    Honestly, I don't think you can go wrong no matter what you order, although with the 4 times I have dined there, I have always ordered the special fish entrees and they have always been outstanding. All the starters and desserts I've had have also been delicious! I highly recommend The Fat Snook! It is by far my favorite restaurant in this area.

    Attentive service by everyone I encountered, especially Robert. He made excellent food recommendations that paired well with the wine I chose. I wish I had a bigger appetite as the menu had many interesting dishes! That gives me reason to come back when I’m once again on The Space Coast.

    We sat outside. The area was covered and there was a strong fan. We were very comfortable. Our waiter was attentive and helpful. The menu is very limited. Look on their website and see if it looks appealing because with some variations that’s all there is. The kitchen overcooked the two salmon entrees (close to black on top), and the side order of Brussel sprouts were cooked dry to the point of almost crumbling. The creole shrimp and scallops entree was delicious. I ordered a bottle of wine that the cellar did not have but the waiter made an excellent choice as a substitute. The meal was not cheap, and if all the food had been well prepared I would have been glad to pay it. But the kitchen failures marred the experience. Be careful what you order.

    We went to celebrate Mother Day with my wife and son. We took a later reservation as that was all that was left but when we got there, the place was more than half empty. Our waiter was excellent and really was a pleasure to have her serve us. I had a very good brown ale and my wife had some wine. We started with the Crab appetizer and a pasta with mushroom appetizer (our favorite dish of the night). We also shared a Cesar salad as my son wanted to try it The batter fired egg was a nice touch in the salad. My son and I each had the steak over Thai salad (a bit too well done as we both ordered it medium) but was still quite tasty. My wife had the Salmon catch of the day and she liked it. We finished off with a slice of Key Lime and a very good cappuccino. Overall a very nice dinner. We will be back.

    You will not have a better total dining experience than at The Fat Snook. Our experience began before we entered the door. The amazing hostess met us outside, was warm and welcoming and took family photos for us. The service inside was incomparable and the menu options were mouthwatering. We’ve dined here multiple times and have never been disappointed. If you live on or travel to the Space Coast, do your palette a favor. Eat at the Fat Snook!

    Finally retired. Food had great flavor but seems to have sat in the window waiting for the server. It was tepid at the table. Bananas foster is a rif on the Brennens dessert. FS uses acetylene torch to crisp the top. I could still taste the fuel. Server took it off the bill.

If you want to try the whole menu, strongly suggest you come to happy hour for reduced prices on apps. The wine selection rocks as well. Doesn’t matter if it’s a special occasion or every day dining.
