Wonderful venue and excellent dining experience.
Meals were fresh, delicious and well presented.
Staff were friendly and attentive.
It's unfortunate we found this place on our last night at the waterfront.

Amazing food. Great service! Has to be one of the best, if not the best place for dinner in Darwin. The fish wings, salt and pepper squid and the whole fish are just outstanding .

For the prices it was fairly average, lots of staff not doing much.
When spraying tables please make sure the spray does not go on other guests and food needs to be handled correctly.
Not worth the hype :/

Have not been at Snapper Rocks in a while and we were pleased to find that quality, service and food are only getting better every time.
We have had a few staples but will need to return to try the new dishes on the menu everything looked so inviting we did not know what to chose.

You forgot our bread order. Steak knife was blunt. You would make a lot more money if the table service was more efficient ( drinks?)

Such a misleading name. Thought we would be able to get a nice seafood platter for 2.
Barely any seafood on the menu

Last night me and my partner enjoyed a lovely dinner together. Everything was delicious and so was the cocktails. It's a must try in Darwin Waterfront.

This is one of my favourite places - especially when celebrating a special occasion. The food is always amazing and this time was no exception. I was however a bit disappointed with the new menu. One of the most enticing things about Snapper Rocks was its fantastic share plate menu which sadly has been decimated. I hope they have a change of heart.

The food was the saviour here. Really tasty, but, serving a bland slaw with a grilled fish should perhaps be rethought...
Service was well below average. One waitperson was quite false and the other girl learning had never been shown how to pour wine.
Once we'd finished we were ignored, had to ask another waitperson for our bill...
Trying to be hip, but just not getting there.
A fail for us.
Try Wharf One at the other end instead, much better.

Great local restaurant with a focus on using fresh, local to create wonderful combinations for their menu. Whilst seafood is a specialty, there are other things on the menu for the non-seafood lovers.
