Snapper Inn Waterfront Restaurant Reviews

  January, 2015
We could not have had a more wonderful experience anywhere! Our wedding was incredible, and the planning was almost as good a time as the day itself. I am amazed that they were able to make this such a stress-free thing! I was not looking forward to all the complications we’d have to work out and I was so worried about everything that could go wrong with people traveling in from out of town, etc. So when we went here to see the venue, I was overwhelmed. I walked in there totally freaking out about everything I thought wasn’t going to be possible. I didn’t walk out that way though. Lori made me feel like everything was going to work out, just from a single conversation with her! She had so many different ideas, but she helped me stay on track by suggesting what she thought would be best. I really appreciated that. Even though she gave us lots of choices, she made sure we didn’t get lost in all those choices. Lori always kept our wants and needs at the forefront of her mind. She never was trying to sell us on anything or get us to move up to the next most expensive tier, and she never treated us like we were “just another couple,” even though I’m sure that’s what we were. They look to be a very busy, popular place, and they must see tons of couples every month! So the fact that she made us feel like we were the only couple in the world every time we were there was just amazing. That’s great customer service. We loved our wedding banquet and our cake. The food really was not what we were expecting. So many people told us that wedding food is usually really bad! This wasn’t just good, it was great. As good as the best gourmet restaurant I’ve ever eaten at. And once again, there were so many choices. And there was nothing that the chef wasn’t willing to try. Our custom cake was awesome! It looked so beautiful! We were almost sad to have to see it go so fast, but our guests are still talking about how good it was. If you’re a nervous bride like I was, I really suggest that you come here. Lori is such a nice person and really has it together. You are in good hands here. She won’t let you forget that! When you have someone of this caliber working with you every day to make your wedding a success, you don’t have to fret! She had everything in hand every step of the way and probably half a dozen backup plans in case anything went wrong (which it didn’t). In hindsight, if I’d known it was going to be that easy, I would never have been so nervous in the first place, and probably would have enjoyed the planning more, lol. But even so, I still had fun, and I wasn’t worried at all on my wedding day!

They have so many different wedding packages here. When Lori showed us our options, we felt overwhelmed, but in a good way! We had a really hard time making up our minds, and she was so helpful. She didn’t automatically just try and sell us on the most expensive package either. She took the time to understand what we were looking for and then helped us narrow it down. Since it was a summer wedding, we could get married indoors or outdoors. We had lots of advance planning time to take care of scheduling, so we actually decided to do the Sunday brunch thing. You have to do it on Sundays; they don’t do the brunch the rest of the week. But that worked well for us and for our guests. And the food was incredible! I am a huge eggs benedict fan, and they made the best eggs benedict I have ever eaten! I barely saved room for dinner, but the ravioli was incredible too. We had desserts too, though I was too full to have any. The drinks were really fabulous! Not everybody can make a good Bloody Mary, but mine was perfect! I heard that the Mimosas were excellent too, but I didn’t try one. My hubby was really happy with the beer selection. We found this place initially through a referral. One of our friends was married here a few years back, and she told us that it was an amazing experience. She told us that Lori was a wonderful person to work with, and she was right. She took all the stress away, and everyone who works under her are so good at what they do! This is not your typical catering hall. They have a lot of options and plenty of room, but the feeling is a lot more personal. Thank you to our dear friend for such a perfect referral, and a huge thank you to Lori and the rest of the staff for making our day so wonderful!

We just fell in love with this place on sight! The way the space flows from indoors to outdoors is really nice, and perfect for a warm day or evening. The columns and the porch give it almost a colonial feel, and it’s right up by the waterside. You can watch boats go by and everything; it’s quite nice. Our wedding felt classy and kind of old-fashioned, which was exactly what we were going for. Lori was the one we worked with on all of the planning. We didn’t have a separate wedding planner or anything, so we needed help with pretty much everything except the clothes. She had some great connections across the board, and got us set up with flowers, cake, catering, entertainment, everything. We had a very fun time on the day of, and the wedding cooperated perfectly. Wonderful time, exactly what we had hoped for. Thanks Lori for making it all so effortless!

This place is simple but lovely, with amazing views out the windows and an unbeatable location. Our event was perfect, thanks to the hard work by Lori and the rest of the staff. We couldn't have been happier.

We really enjoyed working with Lori on all our wedding plans. The weather was beautiful on the day we tied the knot, and we had a wonderful evening at the Snapper Inn celebrating in style. You aren’t going to beat this place for a beautiful location and a lovely interior. We loved both the indoor and outdoor areas here, and the food was ridiculously good!
