The 5 star rating is mainly because of the exceptional service. I wish I knew our servers name. She was terrific. My husband and I enjoyed cocktails and shared calamari and steamed crab legs. My husband had a candied bacon burger and I had octopus...cerviche. It was a very enjoyable dinner and was accompanied by a talented violinist. Looking forward to returning for dinner.More

I had the fried flounder and the fried jumbo shrimp. My husband had the grilled flounder, shrimp and scallops. The house salads were ample and fresh. All the food was excellent. The bar and server at the table were very attentive and they provided excellent...service. We highly recommend this place. ( My husband said he enjoyed this place over Hyman’s in Charleston)More

Great atmosphere and terrific seafood! We sat outside by the water and had a great view of the boats and waterway. The service was attentive and the food was great. We had the Soup/Chowder sampler along with the seafood sampler. The fried shrimp were light...and flavorful and the pita bread was great.More

Greeted well and seated quickly inside but female server was not initially friendly/open - she did warm up as time went on. We split the Captain's Tower which was awesome! The blueberry mottled drink is heavenly as well! Great views right along the water/dock. Overall...enjoyed ourselves and craving filled.More

4 stars because they think an Orange Crush is an Orange Cream but otherwise fantastic! Oysters, both the house specials & the sampler, were outstanding! Ceviche - Lion fish and shrimp - so good. Conch fritters were the best we've ever had aside from Key...West. Burger with crab & Bleu cheese with fresh veggies, outstanding. The steamed clams with pasta very good. Key lime pie is authentic. Cheesecake very good. Out of they way, off the beaten path, difficult parking, but stunning views and really fabulous food!More

NOTE: Snooky’s on the Water is at the Cricket Cove Marina. The restaurant is in the building with the marina offices, it has a private entrance on the far left of the building. With lots of stairs. Outdoor dining is available. Six of us went...to Snooky’s on the Water today. Knowing that “Happy Hour” begins at 4:00 PM we arrived punctually. We were seated promptly, our server Laura arrived soon after with water; the drinkers ordered wine, remember, it was “happy hour” after all, so why not have a drink? When it came to meals, the sheer number of wonderful seafood choices nearly made ordering our entrees difficult, however, we prevailed. Two of the diners had the Coastal Seafood Platter, with one with crab cakes and flounder, the other with fried shrimp; another diner had the 1-pound crab legs bundle. Also ordered were a Scallop - Pee Dee Po’ Boy, a Greek Salad with Grilled Shrimp, and another person had Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes. All food was served promptly and piping-hot, and the portions were generous. Everyone was completely satisfied with their meal from beginning to end. Despite being well fed, three of the diners ordered dessert: Bread Pudding, Key Lime Pie, and Turtle Cheesecake, each of which was excellent too! Oh, one more thing, the view of the marina and Intracoastal Waterway made the ambiance delightful. By the time we left, our bellies were full, our spirits were buoyed, and we vowed to return-again, very soon. Each of us thoroughly enjoyed Snooky’s on the Water and encourage you to give it a try too!More

Our food was delicious! Why haven’t we seen this place before?!! My crab cake and fried shrimp were perfectly cooked. The wedge salad was huge and very good. My wife loved her almond crusted grouper and my friend loved her grilled crab cake sandwich too!...Finally, the clam chowder was perfect. We had to wait 30 minutes, but the wait was well worth the wait. Our waitress, Laura, was just awesome. She was so helpful and nice. Hopefully we can go back soon!More

The stairs are a “witch” to walk up if you have knee problems or are of an elderly age. i got the crab and avocado salad appetizer and it was GREAT. however, our server was rude. she had no patience for having a larger party...and even got snippy with one of the older ladies in our group even though the server is the one who messed up the order…she literally said "well thats what you said" and I was sitting right next to her and that is NOT what she said. But, having been a server, I would never talk back to a patron. you just smile and say sorry and see how you can make amends! The place also seemed dirty. The window we were sitting at was filthy and flies were around. My girls did like looking out the window though at the channel.More

Do you mean are they allowed to be at your feet while dining outside? Thats a question for the restaurant directly as I do not know.
