Staff is Great. Food good. the only down side was they didn't serve grilled red snapper on the seafood platter. Lots of food on the plate we shared a plate the second night. Deserts are very good also

Thank you for your great review! I am not sure if you asked but if you want grilled snapper or shrimp on your seafood platter, you can request that and we will do it. It is not written on the menu, however we are able to address many dietary concerns if there are requests. I will pass your comments onto... More

We got lost and accidentally drove by the Red Snapper Inn. Turned around and came back for a wonderful lunch. Gumbo was very good, oysters in the po'boy were outstanding. Live in Dallas, too far away for routine visits. Wish they or we were closer!

The cuisine is casual, but the service was very prompt and the portions of the red snapper fillets were unbelievable! I will go back asap!

We ordered the fried shrimp and was very pleased. The seasoning was perfect. Our biggest regret is that we didn't order more. My fault mainly, I didn't think I was that hungry but it was so good! Our waitress was very nice and attentive!

Snapper Opelousas and Snapper New Orleans was great. The order of Crab Salad was soggy and disappointing. The Gumbo was bland and tasty. We had to send back the Bar Trash as it was a very small portion and overpriced. The Fettuccini Alfredo without the Shrimp was bland and dry: we only ate ½ and did not take a to... More

I apologize you did not like our food and felt it was overpriced. When you serve fresh seafood the price is the price. We are competitive to any fresh seafood restaurants within an hour drive and serve very large portions. I was here the evening in question and the Bar trash was the exact portion it should have been.

A little pricey but good. The fried zucchini is very good. The fried oysters needed to be fried longer because they were huge. Too much ice in the drinks.

I dined alone and was one of the first people in for dinner, I had to wait a minute or two to be seated but I ended up having an excellent waitress so all was forgiven. Ordered the red snapper opelousas with the potato cakes and mixed vegetables. The bread was very tough, (maybe a sourdough?), but was good when... More

We ate there for a lunch and a family dinner. Oyster po boy almost as good as we eat in Louisiana. Adults enjoyed Greek salads with very nice seafood dinners. Home fries are house made potato chips
