This restaurant IS as good as it gets.
This fish is tender, the dishes are full of buttery goodness. I ordered the Red Snapper New Orleans. It was delicious. My husband ordered the Crab Florentine. It is worth the trip. We also had the Fresh Lump Crabmeat cocktail. For dessert we ate the Blueberry Cobbler. It was delicious. We dined on a Friday evening about 6pm.
Absolutely love this place! I have been
eating here since the 80's.. Always seems to have very fresh seafood. Love the fried snapper/shrimp combo. Get the fried chips too!! Also amazing gumbo. Very tasty!!! We try to go on Thursday nights for the pecan crusted red snapper. If your in the area give this place a try. You won't be disapointed!
After a visit to a client site I drove
down a couple minutes to Surfside and ate at the Red Snapper. There isn't much in the way of restaurants in the area but I'd heard about this one before. I had the gumbo which tasted as expected. Not the best gumbo but not the worst. I had the jumbo shrimp which were butterflied and deep fried quite nicely. Their fries are fried sliced potatoes and quite tasty. Overall, I thought the food was decent and would go back again. The exterior and interior isn't much but that is part of the charm of it.
This is an amazingly good seafood spot
in a small beach community. The prices are perfect for this kind of getaway and the seafood was fresh as could be. I read some of the other reviews and hope that the people that think it is overpriced will be sure to stay in the big crowded city where they belong. I started with the tasty Warsteiner then I had a garden salad and finally the Shrimp Fettuccini Alfredo... the bread was soooo goood too. My friends had the New Orleans Snapper and the Grilled Snapper, I tried the Grilled and found it to be very moist and tasty. I am back in DFW now and can't wait to go back to try the Jumbo Shrimp!
It's hard to find good seafood in NW
Oklahoma so when we are on the coast, I eat as much as I can. We were staying on Galveston Island and started looking on the west end for a good fish joint. We found one! It's a fair drive to Surfside Beach from mid island but the trip was worth it. The restaurant is a casual almost family atmosphere. It was clean and neat. The servers and staff were attentive. The beer and wine list were good. Mrs Eva had the snapper New Orleans - the Alfredo sauce was good and the fish was nicely prepared. I had the snapper Pontchartrain. The fish was lightly breaded and baked, then smothered in the sauce. Both dishes were very tasty. We were well pleased with our dining choice and enjoyed the experience very much.
My wife and I had a nice quiet dinner.
We shared a bottle of wine and my wife was surprised that they carried a Malbec. The red snapper was delicious. Wish I could have given our waitress a score of 10. She was attentive to our needs without hovering and paced our meal perfectly. I am sorry that I didn't get her name, but will definitely ask to be seated at one of her tables next time. We live in the area and will definitely return to this establishment for dinner in the future.
Red Snapper is the "Upscale" restaurant
on Surfside Beach, but still maintains a casual atmosphere. Seafood menu more than just "Fish & Chips", with specialty dishes, all cooked by the Owner/Chef. Food is excellent, prices about average for quality and variety. Very busy on weekends, in season, so may be short wait to be seated. Try it, you'll like it.
