What else is there at Snappers besides fried chicken?

Red Snapper
Snapper is what this place is known for. One of things we really miss about Florida is Red Snapper because it’s delicious! Snappers hooks us up fast with fried red snapper when the fish is in season. Snapper fixes red snapper for you in several different ways. If you really want to go over the top and 20 pieces for a party or for yourself you can do it. Or you can get smaller portions.

This fish is typically farm raised in the South and you’ll find it almost everywhere. When it’s fried it’s totally awesome and Snappers serves this all the time.

Catfish is also farm raised in the South. Usually a fish farm will feed grain to the catfish. This makes the catfish taste yummy and when you fry them like Snappers that sweet grainy goodness comes through the crunchy fried outside of the catfish. If you’ve never had catfish you’ll want to try them and Snappers is a great place.

Conch is something we have not had before but we will give this a try the next time.
