After exploring Lincoln Road, my husband and I stopped here for lunch. The food, service and views were all amazing. Our server was honest with his recommendations, and he didn’t steer us wrong. We sat outside and enjoyed the view of the intercostal, watched boats...More

Quality of food and service is going downhill here. This place use to be awesome, not anymore. The Snappers are small and the prices are high. Let's face it, the view of the river is a nice perk, the restaurant decor is aging. Waiters are...More

The place and ambiance is average. The food was OK. The service was not good. After waiting 40 minutes for a fried fish, I inquired to the waiter what was going on, he said he will tell the manager. As the manager didn't come in,...More

It is the quintessential Miami experience— great seafood in a casual waterfront spot. There is no pretentious vibe at this restaurant run by father-son team Esteban Jr. and Luis Garcia. The top class, fresh seafood speaks for itself. On this night, the stone crabs were...More

Parking seemed very limited. We took an Uber out to the restaurant so I wasn't really paying that much attention to the aspect of parking. My guess is possibly Valet if super busy? Either way the place is definitely worth... More

Their valet parking is at their entrance. We didn't use it, though many did. I'm not 100% sure of the price but I think it's $10+tip. We found metered on- street parking in the same block. It uses a parking app you download... More
