We have been to Schnappers many times. It's one of those places that you have to go to at least once each time you go to Sanibel! This time we just stopped for onion rings and a drink. Great onion rings made fresh and the service was fast and fairly friendly. Conveniently right in Periwinkle Way.

Had a chili cheese dog and wife a cheeseburger. Both very tasty. We shared a small fry, plenty for the two of us. Fries were AMAZING!

What is a visit to Sanibel without a lunch at Schnapper's Hots? In our 30 years of vacation visits to the island we always have at least one lunch here, if not two. What kind of food? Bratwurst, kielbasa, hot dogs, burgers, fries and shakes. I always enjoy the Lewinski which is a kielbasa with pickle, onions, tomato kind of... More

This small restaurant is located right on Periwinkle. They do have very good hamburgers and hot dogs but I feel the prices are rather high. There is no seating inside but they do have picnic tables where you can sit along the outside of the building.

Hotdogs and sausages with a crisp! Lots of toppings and styles to choose from. Fresh fries and about 30 different kinds of ice cream. We would definitely eat here again!!

We order food to go...the Chicago Hot Dog was not what the original taste like. We have eaten many Chicago style dogs in our day. They are never grilled and these dogs where very mushy and did not snap.Missing some of the condiments too! We ate them but not that good. Prices were ok and service so, so!

Thank Patty Higgins S
