What a fabulous place! My husband and I wanted a quiet spot for dinner to celebrate our half marathon run with Space Coast when he came across your location online. The menu looked fabulous and the food, ambiance, and staff did NOT disappoint! Count on us coming back next year!
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.
Delicious and fresh.
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.
Amazing meal as always. First time sitting in their new outdoor patio area...was perfect!
Love Fat Snook. Our go to restaurant when in Cocoa Beach. Great food and atmosphere is good for a quiet meal.
Had an amazing meal at the Fat Snook! Quiet Monday evening and a wonderful, affordable Local’s Prix fixe menu for month of October. Lovely wine selection also!
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!
We dined from the customer appreciation menu and We all really enjoyed our meals. Service was excellent.
Fabulous food!!!! The service was wonderful. The restaurant is beautifully decorated.
Loved the fresh fish, the wine choices, the amazing simplicity and complexity of the food and the great service! Always enjoy going to the Fat Snook when in Melbourne. It is an amazing place to enjoy a fantastic meal. Never disappoints!
Food was outstanding!
Expensive. 3 out of 4 meals were VERY greasy. One guy got sick. Great service and ambiance.
Amazing! I have some food allergies and they were more than accommodating. Highly recommended!
Food was excellent, so much flavor. Great local appreciation deals, and service was very good. We enjoyed our date very much.
Our first time at the Fat Snook. The meal was fantastic. The service was outstanding. Very enjoyable evening. Looking forward to returning.
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.
That shrimp and scallop dish is a must - very New Orleans!
Great food and great experience as always.
Had a wonderful meal!
Food and service was outstanding. The only improvement would have been some music playing and room a little cooler.
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.
Most amazing food!!!!’ Everything, absolutely everything was spectacular and outstanding! We very much recommend every foodie to give it a try and we most certainly be back very soon!
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
I visited to celebrate a friends Birthday. We had an amazing meal and excellent service. I’ve visited several times before and am never disappointed. I would highly recommend.
Amazing food, can’t wait to eat there again!
Fantastic starters that blended well with the main course
Food was great, service was great, overall experience A+
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.
It was our first time and we will recommend and return.
Louis always treats us especially wonderful!!
Food was amazing
The food is fresh , creative and delicious. The service is always perfect . The only downfall is that they keep it quite warm in the restaurant.
The food was prepared expertly and presentation was incredible! We had three different dinners and they were all fabulous!
It just wasn’t amazing food. We had heard some much about it. It fell short of all expectations.
The best food we've had in Cocoa Beach! Absolutely delicious fresh food with amazingly creative presentations and impeccable service. We will definitely be back!
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
