Marcel took care of us this time and did a fabulous job with food and wine. Took the time to chat with us and make sure all of our nuanced needs were handled. Snook did a $35 fixed price that included their yummy duck so we jumped on that and brought our own bottle for the main course w/ just $20 corkage plus had a couple of Chardonnays from their menu for the apps. Snook never disappoints!

The steak that I ordered was very tough. They really didn’t do anything to make it right it’s very expensive should be a prime beef for that price

As always, The Fat Snook delivered. The food, wine and service were amazing. It's an amazing place to have a special night out. Our server was Asia and she was attentive, knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. If they have the sea bass on the available specials just get it and thank me later. It's just unbelievable. We always love going back!! :0)

This was an evening that my wife and I spent with 2 of our military officer granddaughters. We aren't able to have them together often and intended a nice dinner with conversation and catching up. We split a couple of starters among us each thoroughly enjoyed our entrees and shared some desserts. The food was wonderful with everyone complimenting the tastes and beautifully presented dishes. Our granddaughters complimented the Fat Snook in every aspect, which delighted us, as it is a favorite of ours.

Our best meal in the Space Coast to date. We actually made a meal of one fish entree and several appetizers. The oysters were especially delicious, and the street corn deviled eggs were unique and fun as well as tasty.

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.

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.
