THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Lucky Snapper Restaurant Review

: Grilled, fried or blackened---it's a simple approach to locally caught seafood, but one that suits the laidback zeitgeist of this Panhandle fishing destination. Local blue crab is given several treatments, from crab cakes to buttermilk-battered claws, and the in-house smoker makes exemplary work of pork ribs and chops (the smoked grouper is also a notable local delicacy). The Lucky Snapper conducts a brisk business in weddings and banquets, given the view, but also features live music and fairly heady frozen drinks---making it a top local spot for a bit of revelry.
