We have been there only a few times over the years but always a memorable experience. Food is fantastic as always. Service also gets high marks.
Only regret is I wish they had a full bar. Would be nice to enjoy a before or after meal cocktail with such a great meal.

The service, the ambience, the food were all just amazing. Bulgoki is my favorite and the Shrimp and Scallop dish for my entre was out of this world. The flavors and taste was wonderful.

The Fat Snook has a great ambiance. With COVID concerns, tables were separated, and outside dining was an option. We chose to stay inside and it was lovely. I had the Poblano Pesto Shrimp with Pumpkin Cheddar Grits and my husband had the Creole Shrimp and Scallops. The food was delicious and the service was great. When we go back to Cocoa Beach, this is a definite do-over.

I love the Mexican Corn Deviled Eggs and the Corn Bread, I order those every time. Tried the Thai Beef Salad this time, it was super fresh and had great flavors, just the right amount of heat. In addition to the consistently great food, the wine list is impressive with a good variety. The staff is very good at recommendations for which wine would be perfect with the food you order. Last important thing, it's upscale food but you can come in dressed however you want. Even if you just came off the beach!

A small, fine-dining experience. The service is very good, and they certainly try to make it seem 'upscale'. But the main method of doing so seems to be by raising the price of everything. The table was nothing special, just a small square table out in the open with average chairs. For that price point I would have liked a good booth or some separation from other diners. The meal(s) were good, professionally presented - but not excellent - and a bit salty for my taste. I also like my store-bought $13 wine better than their skinny $50 bottle. It wasn't a 'bad' experience, but it wasn't 'great' like the bill suggests it should have been. Also, despite the cool name the menu is very limited and you won't find snook there.

Our meal at The Fat Snook was quite possibly the best meal I have ever had! My girlfriend and I went to celebrate our anniversary and one after the other, each item we selected was incredible.

We would highly recommend the duck! Truly an fantastic meal with classy service and a fun vibe.

The Fat Snook is hands down best restaurant in Cocoa.
The Chef is amazing.
They have put great effort into Covid safety.

One thing, I do wish they had cocktails. Beer and Wine only

The server was awesome. I told him it was a special occasion and he did it right. All of the servers did. He gave us a corner table which I requested, he gave us plenty of time between courses, he explained all the entrees with great details including the apps and desert. After we finished I paid and he said no rush leaving as he waited after they were closed. Good job to all. Thank you.

The coconut bisc and crab appetizer was not what I expected. I'll pass next time. The entrees saved the review and meal. I also thought they served liquor and was disappointed they do not. Great random date night. If you want to sit inside, call ahead and double check.

I've heard amazing things about the fat snook so my expectations were high, food was OK, nothing special, paid $100 for 2 drink 1 mediocre app, a lobster BLT (smallest portion of lobster I've ever seen) and the hubby's dinner had maybe 4 shrimp 😕 will not waste anymore money here
