Cool atmosphere with a bunch of outdoor picnic tables. Limited menu, good food. I highly recommend the hush puppies! Today they had a man playing music in the harmonica. Bayou feel. They also have indoor dining. Dock with river tours at noon, 1:30, & 3pm - possible alligator sightings.
I had a delicious pulled pork and pulled chicken sandwich with barbecue sauce and it was fantastic. The servers were really friendly and despite the place being packed, the service was very fast. We ate along the river on a deck under an umbrella and it was a beautiful view. Even the guy working at the gift shop was very friendly and interesting. All in all just a terrific lunch. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.
I did not take any pictures of the food to show but I did get one of the little alligator by the river. The food at Snook Haven is AMAZINGLY awesome. I personally had the fish and chips. The batter on the fish was *chef's kiss* so crunchy and light. Hush puppies and okra were flavorful and the side parsley golden potatoes side - also yummy. No live music today due to weather but can tell that it must be super exciting with a band. Also have canoes/kayaks and river tours that I will definitely be trying my next time down here in Venice.
I have been here twice: Both times had live music, I order the Fish & Chips & it's big enough to split with two people ease! Very good and the old fashioned style chips that come with it are excellent, in my opinion! I get the Mac & cheese as a side, it's also delicious! It's located in a private cozy setting surrounded by nature. Nice break from your every day life! Relax, have fun, kick back and enjoy! I sure do!!!
A great place to relax and spend a sunny afternoon or evening when they have music outside. I had the chicken tacos they were little dry but honestly I don't think you go there for the food you go there for the ambiance. Most everything on the menu is fried.
