Schnapper's Hots on Sanibel Island

When we go to Sanibel Island, the very first thing we do when we get there is stop at Schnapper's Hots to get something to eat.  It's our annual tradition.


I love the beachy vibe of the hot pink and canary yellow building.  As soon as we pull into the parking lot we scan the front windows and say a quick prayer that the line isn't going to be out the door.  I cannot wait to shove some of their French fries into my mouth!


You walk up to the cashier and place your order.  I never have to look at the menu because I always get the exact same thing - the buffalo chicken wings.  Chablis always gets a hot dog and we split an order of French fries.  They have the best fries on the planet!



While you're waiting for your order, it's fun to walk around the interior of the building and read all the signs and look at the posters....

5 minutes or so later and our order is ready.  Sorry that the photo quality here isn't too great.  I was too worried about eating and not paying attention to the lighting.....


The restaurant is small and there is no inside seating, just 2 long counters for standing room only - which is fun and adds to the ambiance.  They have huge rolls of paper towels on the counters to use instead of napkins and believe me, I needed them for my chicken wings.  However, there are picnic tables scattered outside if you prefer sitting down.


Schnapper's Hots is an award winning restaurant and has been a Sanibel Island fixture since 1998.

  5. We went there for the first time last June after shelling at the lighthouse and picked up bunches of burgers, fries and onion rings and took them back to our condo for a family dinner! It was great!
