Absolutely awesome, Schnapper's uses top of the line products for a top of the line experience. The Buffalo Chicken Wings will make you think your in Buffalo, NY. Perfectly cooked and just the right amount of sauce, the blue cheese is also the real deal....More

Love the Chicago Dog and the fries are hand cut. The place has a lot of character and a huge ice cream selection. I saw some great looking milkshakes being served.

This is mostly takeout with standing tables inside or a few picnic tables outside. Burgers and Hotdogs and fries. Ice cream also available. Nicely cooked , but a little pricey, $46 for 3 burgers, a chili dog, 4 drinks and a basket of fries.

Original foot long and Chicago dog foot long and onion rings were stellar! No seating inside, a few covered picnic tables outside. Big Olaf's ice cream was worth melting for!

This is a must when visiting Sanibel. The food is cooked to order and the fries are the best ever. We get one jumbo fry and they heap the fries In an open box. The burgers are great and the hot dogs are good too....More
